As they grow stronger in the hospital, Nadya Suleman’s octuplets are getting closer to coming home to a larger, recently purchased house – where it looks like they’ll have a free fleet of skilled nurses.

The Suleman family is buying a house in Orange County, Calif., that’s nearly twice as large as the one where Nadya, 33, the mother of the U.S.‘s longest-surviving octuplets, lives with her six older children in Whittier.

“She’s excited,” Suleman’s mother, Angela, tells PEOPLE. “This is an old house and this new one will have a lot more space.”

The 2,583-foot four-bedroom, three-bathroom house in La Habra is “a good house for kids,” with a huge yard, Mike Patel of Prudential Realty tells PEOPLE. “It’s a good house for a big family and there is room to add on more rooms.”

The house, listed at $564,900, has a short escrow that should close later this week, Patel says. He adds he represents the owner, who didn’t know the Suleman family before the deal came together. “They just happened to like this house,” Patel says. The official buyer is Nadya’s father, Ed Doud.
