Shark is clos­ing in on home

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - The Everest -

The great white shark Greg Norman — who flew into Syd­ney this week — might be com­ing back to Aus­tralia more often.

The golf­ing leg­end, who has spent the last 40 years across the pond in the US, has sig­nalled he is look­ing at buy­ing a place Down Un­der.

And no or­di­nary home — he wants a vine­yard. But his wife, Kirsten Kut­ner en­vis­ages their dream home in Queens­land.

He ap­par­ently spent rainy Sun­days in Florida check­ing out realestate.com.au for the cur­rent of­fer­ings.

“I would love to go back and have a place there,” Norman told NewsCorp.

“I would love to have a vine­yard.

“I don’t know where. I love Mar­garet River, I love the Barossa Val­ley, the Yarra Val­ley, the Hunter Val­ley.”

His wife how­ever, Syd­ney in­te­rior de­signer Kut­ner, is a self­de­clared beach girl.

“I am a very chilled beach girl at heart so I hope one day to move back with Greg to build our dream home some­where in Queens­land.”

Norman, who was born in Mount Isa in Out­back Queens­land, far away from any beach, owns a 2400sqm Florida man­sion home, known as Tran­quil­ity.

It is on the ul­tra-ex­clu­sive Jupiter Is­land.

Fea­tur­ing its own putting green, it was listed with US $55 mil­lion hopes last year. He paid $4.9 mil­lion in 1991. No sight­ings af­ter he touched down this week to over­see a pro­posed Illawarra golf course, but Norman might be in­ter­ested in the Roth­vale Vine­yard and Win­ery in the Hunter Val­ley, which has just hit the mar­ket through Alan Jurd of Jurd’s Real Es­tate.
