Looks like Bill and Hillary Rodham Clinton are moving on up -- to a deluxe mansion away from prying eyes.
Sources told The Post the Clintons are planning to trade their almost-modest suburban Chappaqua home for a sprawling $10.9 million estate in the bucolic Westchester town of Bedford Hills, complete with 20 acres of gorgeous land surrounded by New York's elite.
The massive compound -- sweetly named Clover Hill Farm -- comes with high fences, two guesthouses and a mansion fit for Bubba's millionaire lifestyle.
The home -- found only after a long cruise down a private road -- is 7,000 square feet with a large foyer, wood paneled library with fireplace, chef's kitchen with fireplace, five bedrooms, six full bathrooms and two half bathrooms.
That means plenty of room for grandkids and the Secret Service.

Although it was built only 10 years ago, the entire mansion retains a rustic feel with exposed wooden support beams. The master bedroom has its own fireplace, along with his-and-hers dressing rooms and bathrooms. The "hers" room is two stories tall.
The house also features a wine cellar with a custom wet bar, an outdoor fireplace, a heated pool, artist studio and stable.
The current owner, Paul Wallace, founded the Manhattan real-estate firm Broadstone Group. The 74-year-old retiree declared Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Westchester federal court in May.
His property had been on the market since December.
In between international jaunts, the Clintons have made repeated visits to the five-bedroom compound and plan to sign a contract on the property "within weeks," one well-placed source said.
The Clintons are so keen on the estate that the deal could come within days of daughter Chelsea's July 31 wedding to Marc Mezvinsky in Rhinebeck, that source added. The ex-president and his wife, the secretary of state, were looking at other homes in Bedford Hills, the source said.
When they seal the deal, they'll ditch the Metro-North crowd for the likes of Richard Gere, Martha Stewart and Glenn Close, who all have homes in town.
