The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Front Page -

For­mer state crick­eter and Brad­man medal­list Martin Faull is sell­ing up in search of a big splash.

He and wife Kelli are hop­ing to find a larger home with a swim­ming pool in the St Peters area.

Mrs Faull said they had loved liv­ing at West­bourne Park but thought it was time to move closer to fam­ily.

‘‘It’s a fan­tas­tic house, nice neigh­bours and right next to the park,’’ she said.

The prop­erty is listed with Klemich Real Es­tate’s Steve Alexan­der with a price guide of $795,000.

Mr Alexan­der said the free­stone-fronted Tu­dor had been ex­tended and was a nice mix of char­ac­ter and mod­ern fea­tures.

SAFM break­fast show host Rab­bit has just bought a block of land at Black­wood Park and al­ready has be­gun build­ing his dream home.

He and son Jor­dan camped out in their car the night be­fore the land was re­leased to en­sure they got the block they wanted. ‘‘ We thought ‘Well, if peo­ple are camp­ing out to buy land here it can’t be that bad’,’’ Rab­bit said of his choice of lo­ca­tion.

He is rent­ing at nearby Aber­foyle Park so that Jor­dan can be­gin school.

‘‘We’re go­ing to have a house­warm­ing in the dis­play home,’’ he said.

‘‘We’re so keen to show the house off; we’re not wait­ing un­til it’s built.’’

The sure-to-be-stun­ning home by Mar­shall Thomp­son in­cludes four bed­rooms and h a s a n a l l - i mport a n t h o me the­atre.

❏ If you’re plan­ning to check out the film by lo­cal di­rec­tor Scott Hicks, The Boys are Back, make sure to take a good look at the cred­its.

Klemich Real Es­tate agent Judy Mor­ris’s name ap­pears in them be­cause she or­gan­ised a Port El­liot prop­erty for Clive Owen and his fam­ily to stay in while the film was be­ing shot.

Ms Mor­ris said she had no idea about her credit, but it was a fan­tas­tic sur­prise.

‘‘As I was leav­ing, I went up to Scott and said ‘Fan­tas­tic film’ and he said ‘Well, did you see your credit?’ ’’ she said.

‘‘I an­swered ‘ What?’ – so he said I would need to watch the film again and have a closer look.’’

Ms Mor­ris said the prop­erty Owen rented for about six weeks was one of the most lux­u­ri­ous homes on the South Aus­tralian coast.
