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

ADE­LAIDE Crows ruck­man Brad Mo­ran is trad­ing sea­side liv­ing for a home in the trendy east­ern sub­urbs.

The Largs Bay home he shares with fi­ancee Ali­cia Smith is on the mar­ket with Toop & Toop’s Troy Tyn­dall for $1.25 mil­lion.

Brad has lived in the home for about two years and says he now is looking for a home at Nor­wood.

Un­in­ter­rupted sea views, four bed­rooms and low­main­te­nance liv­ing has meant his home has been a pop­u­lar list­ing for Toops.

‘‘The best thing is the size of the home. The open space liv­ing is great and it’s so close to the beach,’’ Brad says.

‘‘We’ve had a few bar­be­cues out the back. It’s a great venue for it.’’

❏ From coastal liv­ing in the west to is­land liv­ing in the south, Dave Glee­son, the lead singer of Aussie rock band Scream­ing Jets, is be­lieved to be house-hunt­ing on Kan­ga­roo Is­land.

Dave re­cently was on the is­land par­tic­i­pat­ing in the Va­ri­ety Char­ity Trek and, while there, was seen check­ing out a few prop­er­ties with Brock Har­courts agent Alex Ouwens.

Word is his neigh­bours at Nor­ton Sum­mit al­ready have bought prop­erty on KI and think Dave just might be back for a sec­ond look for a home of his own.

Mr Ouwens has sold dozens of $1 mil­lion-plus prop­er­ties on the is­land in the past few years and since has es­tab­lished a hol­i­day ac­com­mo­da­tion busi­ness, Club KI. ‘‘Last year, KI was fully booked from De­cem­ber 15 un­til Jan­uary 31,’’ he says.

Also on the move are lead­ing Ade­laide ar­chi­tects Greg and Sue Rogers, who are sell­ing their Col­lege Park prop­erty.

The home is listed with Brock Har­courts agent Hamish Mill and will be auc­tioned on De­cem­ber 12. It has a price guide of $1.1 mil­lion.

The prop­erty is ideally lo­cated next to the Lin­ear Park, has ‘‘mag­nif­i­cent’’ views and the equiv­a­lent of 10 main rooms and a swim­ming pool.

Be­ing ar­chi­tects, Greg and Sue were very much in­volved in the evo­lu­tion of the home.

‘‘It started off as a bun­ga­low,’’ Sue says. ‘‘We de­mol­ished the greater part of it and then added bed­rooms up­stairs to suit our fam­ily’s re­quire­ments. We then added a fam­ily room at the back and con­verted the two front rooms to a stu­dio.’’

Greg and Sue, who bought the home in 1986, plan to re­tire and say the prop­erty is now sur­plus to their needs.

Crows ruck­man Brad Mo­ran is seek­ing an east­ern­sub­urbs life­style and is sell­ing his Largs Bay home.
