Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner have reportedly added to their Florida real estate holdings, purchasing a $24 million waterfront home near Miami close to a separate lot the couple purchased last year, according to real estate site The Real Deal.

The site reported that an entity connected to Jared, 40, closed on the six-bedroom, 8,510-square-foot home in April. It is located in the ultra-exclusive Indian Creek Island, near a multimillion-dollar undeveloped lot purchased by the couple in 2020.

A Zillow listing details that the couple's new home is in move-in condition and sits on 1.3 acres. According to the listing, the property has reflecting pools and a large dock, among other amenities. It hit the market in October for more than $20 million.

The listing notes that ultra-exclusive island in which the home lies has been dubbed "Billionaire Bunker" and boasts a 24-hour police force, 18-hole golf course, and only 36 home sites — making it both secure and very private.

The new purchase follows reports that the couple had been planning to build a home on the vacant property purchased in 2020. Since leaving the White House in January, they've been renting a condo in the luxury high-rise Arte building in Surfside, Fla.

As MarketWatch notes, the building in which they've been renting is located less than a mile from the Champlain Towers South building that partially collapsed last month.

The collapse could help explain why Ivanka, 39, and Jared — both of whom previously served as senior aides to President Donald Trump — are looking to move out of their condo and into a property that's already constructed.

According to recent reports, the couple quietly helped out with the rescue efforts at the Surfside condo collapse, which killed at least 97 people. A source told Miami's NBC 6 that the the former first daughter and her husband donated funds to an effort that supplied food to first responders and volunteers searching for survivors.

Otherwise, the couple has made few public appearances or statements in the months since leaving the White House, where they faced their own controversies as well as those of the president.

In March, Ivanka delivered boxes of food in Apopka, Fla., and more recently encouraged people to get a COVID-19 vaccine.

Sources have previously told PEOPLE that Ivanka remains focused on her family while her father, 74, spends of his time continuing to spread baseless election conspiracies and criticizing his political adversaries.

"She's been spending a lot of quality time with her kids and her family, as well as settling into their new home and all that comes with it," an Ivanka source previously told PEOPLE. "She's been really enjoying her time."
