It is Sam and Snezana’s first home together with the couple having met while living on opposite ends of the country.
Mother-of-one Snezana was living in Perth when she applied to become a contestant on the third series of The Bachelor while Sam, a fitness buff and gym-owner, was based in Melbourne.
After declaring the Macedonian beauty the one for him in a dramatic finale in September, Sam jetted between his home and Snezana’s for the first months of their relationship.

Snezana, who recently completed a degree in molecular genetics, was also seen making the journey several times. The pair told of their hopes to move in together but insisted that they would not rush the decision while Snezana’s daughter Eve remained in school.
In December during a family holiday to Tasmania Sam popped the question to the delight of the beauty and her daughter.
It’s likely the pair decided to settle in Melbourne as Sam continues to work on his fitness businesses. The former reality TV star has two businesses, a children’s gym called Gecko Fitness and a recently opened facility, The Woodshed.
He regularly takes to social media to promote the latter and is developing meal and workout plans to be released.
