Who’s been seen where and the big-name prop­er­ties up for grabs

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Brock -

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.’’

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.
