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.
