The tiny waterfront village of Wayne, New York, is abuzz with news that John Travolta and Kelly Preston are looking to purchase a new mansion to welcome the soon-to-be new addition to their clan.
RadarOnline.com has confirmed that the couple – who are expecting their third child – are considering a $2.5 million property, complete with its own boat dock, lap pool, Cathedral ceilings, extraordinary gardens and indoor and outdoor bars.
One local told RadarOnline.com he was convinced Travolta is going to purchase the sprawling estate after his entourage was spotted in the neighborhood in recent weeks.
“The word around town is that John Travolta is considering purchasing a home in the Finger Lakes area,” they said.
The Travoltas announced two-months ago that Preston, at 47, is pregnant.
It was the best news possible for Travolta, 56, and Preston, who are parents to Ella Bleu, 10. Their 16-year-old son, Jett, died of a seizure in January 2009.
Realtor Shawn Broome told RadarOnline.com that the Travoltas would be attracted to the area, because of its access to a nearby air field. John, who has had his private pilot’s license since 1974, owns a number of small planes and the couple’s house in Florida even has its own runway.
“If you fly airplanes this is a great place to own a home because a small private jet company has a huge runway that can handle big jet landings,” Broome told RadarOnline.com.
“People land private jets here all the time.”
They aren’t the first celebrities to be linked to the close-knit community. The Travolta’s Scientologist pal Tom Cruise grew up in nearby Syracuse, which is only an hour away, and The View host Whoopi Goldberg also reportedly owns a home in the area.
