prop­erty spy

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

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Contents -

Leigh Whicker is mov­ing on . . . in a real-es­tate sense, that is. Our spies re­port the SANFL chief ex­ec­u­tive placed his Lyn­ton home on the mar­ket last week with Smal­la­combe’s An­drew and Leith Friebe . . . .and a cool price guide of $1.195 mil­lion–$1.295 mil­lion.

We’re told Mr Whicker, who has lived in the home for al­most three years, has bought an­other dwelling in a sim­i­lar area and is pre­par­ing for a change in life­style with his fam­ily.

Leith talks the home up as hav­ing one of the best swim­ming pools he has seen.

And he’s prob­a­bly right on the money be­cause it has spa-jet fa­cil­i­ties and coloured light­ing.

But that’s not all the prop­erty has go­ing for it.

‘‘It has stun­ning views; ab­so­lutely un­in­ter­rupted views of the coast and the city,’’ An­drew says.

‘‘It has three dou­ble bed­rooms, a large lounge, din­ing and kitchen area and two other liv­ing ar­eas, in­clud­ing a fam­ily room at the rear that opens up to an al­fresco en­ter­tain­ing area. As well, there is a big area down­stairs that could be used as a home the­atre or games room.’’

Al­though the prop­erty has been on the mar­ket for only a week, it al­ready has at­tracted plenty of in­ter­est.

Ex­pres­sions of in­ter­ests close July 28, un­less sold be­fore.

A busi­ness­woman is sell­ing her stun­ning mil­lion-dol­lar-plus Ten­nyson home. We can’t re­veal her name, but she’s well known in the ac­com­mo­da­tion in­dus­try.

‘ ‘ My c h i l d r e n l e f t h o me ear­lier this year and now I’m on my own I’m go­ing to down­size,’’ she told Prop­erty Spy.

‘‘I love that it’s fac­ing east, away from the sun and the wind. I’ve lived on the beach be­fore but this is bet­ter. I ab­so­lutely adore it but it’s just so big. It’s a great fam­ily home.’’

The home is just a three­minute walk to the beach and pro­vides an en­vi­able l ow­main­te­nance life­style.

It was placed on the mar­ket this week with Toop & Toop agent Becky Neale and a price tag of $2.8 mil­lion.

Toop & Toop man­ag­ing di­rec­tor An­thony Toop says to keep your eyes peeled for some more hot prop­erty about to hit the mar­ket.

‘‘We’re deal­ing with some ex­tremely high-end prop­erty at present,’’ he said. ‘‘I can’t di­vulge which prop­er­ties but there are some iconic homes with high­pro­file own­ers that are not far from hit­ting the mar­ket.’’

The pool that Leigh Whicker will miss.
