Who’s been seen where and the big-name properties up for grabs
Keep your eyes peeled for Paul Bartlett’s Urrbrae home, because it will hit the market within the next fortnight.
Mr Bartlett, the former general manager of radio stations FIVEaa and Nova 919, is packing his bags for an East Coast move and a new radio gig.
Wife Karen and their youngest daughter Samantha, 16, will be by his side, but his two older children will remain in Adelaide.
‘‘I’ve lived in this house longer than I’ve lived in any house in my life,’’ Mr Bartlett says of the bitter-sweet move.
The house has enjoyed a modern renovation and features four bedrooms, a study and a pool.
‘‘I love the space, love its location. . . (and) the fact that there’s park access just at our backdoor,’’ Mr Bartlett says.
‘‘I think it’s a great neighbourhood. Urrbrae is a fantastic piece of suburbia and it’s right on the edge of town. It is 6.5km from the heart of the city.’’
It’s listed with Toop & Toop agents Anthony Toop and Tim Thredgold.
Down south Bob Skinner, a retired Lieutenant Colonel in the US Airforce and former prosecuting attorney is selling his Hallett Cove property.
We’re told he and his Australian-born wife, Laurie, built the home in 2005.
It’s on the market with Harris Real Estate agents Georgie Todd and James Williams and is being marketed for $1.1 million.
Georgie says the home pretty spectacular.
‘‘It has unspoilt sea views and has been influenced from their time spent abroad, particularly in Morocco and Spain,’’ he says.
‘‘They are downsizing and plan to spend time travelling.’’
Do you remember the interest the property on Channel 9’s
showed at 340
is Angas St?
Well, they came to the auction last Saturday and filmed the two buyers who ended up being the two highest bidders.
Brock Harcourts agent Alexander Ouwens says the auction went ‘‘perfectly’’. ‘‘We had a crowd of at least 100 people and we paid Martin’s (Brock Harcourt’s agent Martin Wylie) mate to supply coffee in return for a $1 donation to the Harcourts Foundation to keep everyone warm,’’ he says. ‘‘(We had) 10 registered bidders (and) the auction sold for $30,000+ above reserve.
The new buyers are Ross and Angela Karatassa, who run Eat Street Cafe´ in Gawler Place.
