Having now wrapped up filming for the next season of A Place to Call Home, actress Marta Dusseldorp and her husband Ben Winspear have decided it's time to depart their Paddington terrace.

But their elegant Paddington home is advertised as being available for a 12 month plus lease, not sale.

Its rental listing has reignited suggestions that Hollywood might be on the horizon for the couple.

Dusseldorp briefly headed to the US some two decades ago, but couldn't afford to pursue the challenge. 

She has since become an award-winning stage and television actress and being at the top of her game, Dusseldorf signalled recently she could be off to America.

But first up they head to Brisbane, where they both will appear in Joanna Murray-Smith's stage adaptation of Scenes from a Marriage for the Queensland Theatre Company.

The adaptation of the Ingmar Bergman classic sees the real-life power couple Marta Dusseldorp and husband Ben Winspear play the warring spouses. It kicks off in November.

The traditional terrace house, described as both contemporary and true to its 19th Century traditions with high ceilings, ornate cornices, beautiful woodwork, and kauri floors, cost them $2,125,000 in 2013.

They're asking $1,700 a week for the four bedroom home which comes with two renovated bathrooms.

Downstairs living, dining and kitchen areas open to a large courtyard garden through French doors.

Phillips Pantzer Donnelly agents William Hesketh and Katrina Borg are leasing the $1700 a week home. 

Dusseldorp plays the character of Janet King in the 2011 ABC1 drama series Crownies, a role she repreised in the 2014 spin-off Janet King.

But her most notable performance is the lead role in the Foxtel Showcase series A Place to Call Home.

She plays nurse Sarah Adams, who has returned to Australia after 20 years abroad to start a new life and ends up clashing with wealthy matriarch Elizabeth Bligh, played by Nona Hazlehurst.

Season five will air on Foxtel's Showcase on October 8.
