Shark is closing in on home
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.
