It comes with a whirlpool, Danish TV, air conditioning, and a large outdoor play area for Nikolai and Felix. The home is in a development called Reme's Oasis Club in Alanya, Turkey.
Don't they already have one there, or is this still the house they were reportedly buying ages and ages ago?

I don't know if this is the same house that they were considering years ago. The article stated that they were "borrowing" a house from one of the owners of the development, Denis Knudsen. It sounds like they are buying the same house that Knudsen was letting them use during their summer holidays. Denis Knudsen is a fashion stylist (he has worked with Princess Marie), and is one of three owners/investors in the development according to this article:

Countess Alexandra was in Odense today as the patron of the Tinder Box:

Countess Alexandra is back in Odense today. She is there to receive a check from Team Rynkeby on behalf of the Children's Cancer Fund.
Alexandra besøger Ringe - Fyens Stiftstidende - Faaborg-Midtfyn

Alexandra is the patron of the Children's Cancer Fund. The money was raised through the sale of cyclist jerseys from the Tour de France. The goal of the group was to double the amount that they awarded last year.

I can't read the article as I don't know Danish. Is this not far from where they lived before? I hope the kids don't have to change schools. That's a difficult adjustment.

The article is not about a new home in Denmark, it's about a
holiday house in Turkey. According to the article they've
already spent some holidays in one of the houses of Dennis
Knudsen before and now bought one. It seems to be a quite
luxuriously one and to be placed in an area where other famous
people spend their holidays as well.

Thank you very much, Iceflower!

Countess Alexandra looks gorgeous in these photos. Dennis Knudsen must be a very busy man. He is one of the key investors in the resort where Alexandra and Martin are buying their vacation home. He has worked as a fashion stylist to Princess Marie, and now he has a makeup line. It is nice to see the Countess supporting her friend.

Billed Bladet has some more photos and a short article from the event:

Alexandra looks brilliant! I love the top, the jacket, the skirt and even her hairstyle (and that's coming from someone who's almost allergic to short 'trendy' hairstyles).
Martin looked handsome as well: looks like they were having a very good time.

Ah! I do like Alexandra's hair today, it's the first time it doesn't age her since she had it cut short, I guess it's b/c it's not gelled back as she did it previously, it is so refreshing

I am posting a response for the first time even though I have been reading about Countess Alexandra since 2003.

I find the question about what Martin does for a living interesting because he does not appear to work. Who would have so much extra time to go to events? Then, he may not have to think about finances or work.

I think that Alexandra's new hairstyle has the effect of making her look less approachable and older than she is. When she had longer hair, she had a softer kinder appearance.

Martin is a photographer. I think being a photographer it´s quite free to arrange his working schedule. Martin is by the way from a wealthy family.

Which events has he been attending that would preclude him from having a job?
