Who’s been seen where and the big-name properties up for grabs
YOU can almost smell the Pale Ale. But not for much longer.
After 24 years Glenn Cooper, the executive chairman of beer empire Coopers Brewery, is on the move having this week sold his stunning Rosslyn Park home.
While no sale price was disclosed, the property was advertised between $1.75 million and $1.9 million.
The home is a great entertainer, Brock Harcourts agent Nathan Casserly says, and he should know.
Mr Casserly is Mr Cooper’s sonin-law, so the property was naturally in good hands.
‘‘It is a great house for entertaining – we had a couple of good occasions (parties) but it was more a family home for them, it’s big on family.’’
The home is in a peaceful cul de sac near Penfold Estate.
‘‘It’s an immaculately presented, well-built family home. It has a tennis court and swimming pool, and is on about 1800sq m of land.’’
The Coopers clan currently is building a new home in Beaumont and plan to move in at the end of the year.
It’s a busy time for SAFM’s Andrew ‘‘Cosi’’ Costello. As well as preparing for his May wedding and juggling two children with another on the way, he now is selling two of his four investment properties.
With a self-confessed emotional attachment, the keen investor is selling his first home, which he bought about 10 years ago, for about $265,000, and his Osborne home for $310,000.
Both homes have been property managed by Toop & Toop, which also has been listed as selling agent.
Cosi currently owns five homes, including the residence he and his family live in at Fullarton.
‘‘We were renting in Air Apartments and my fiance got pregnant for the third time and she demanded we move out,’’ he says.
‘‘I signed it (the Fullarton house) and gave it to her as a Valentine’s present (last year),’’ he says.
‘‘I told her we couldn’t buy it and then on Valentine’s Day blindfolded her, then drove her to the house . . . she was elated.’’ ❏ Smallacombe’s Steve Osborn, business development manager for Kris Casey, spied Dizzee Rascal and his sidekick at the Adelaide airport reading none other than The Advertiser Real Estate liftout.
Although dropping by for the Big Day Out, we wonder if the rapper is considering a move to Radelaide, or at least a holiday home. Watch this space.
SOLD: Glenn Cooper’s Rosslyn Park property.
