Charles and Christa purchased the home ‘in conjunction with’ filmmaker Steve Ravic.

The property spent five years on the market and was handled by six different real estate agencies before it was snapped up by the trio. 

The standout feature of the quirky home is a swimming pool in the mansion’s kitchen.

While Christa is a reality TV star, having appeared in both The Real Housewives of Melbourne and Sydney, her renowned artist husband has works hanging in the Vatican, the White House and the United Nations.

Ravic meanwhile recently premiered a documentary he made about Charles, called Billich: Beyond The Canvas.

All three plan to live in and work from the home while in Melbourne.

The purchase comes after Christa discussed the clandestine world of exclusive sex parties, and how one gets invited to them, on her new podcast Let’s Just Talk About It alongside drag queen Tomi. 

The open swinger also spoke about her famous 30-year open marriage to Billich – calling ‘fidelity’ in most marriages a ‘lie’.

‘It’s liberating. It’s just simple and easy,’ she said of the arrangement, admitting it was a more unusual type of relationship in Australia and America.

‘[In Australia] They love to just have their couples and their family… but it’s just a big lie,’ she said.
