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

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Real Estate -

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.
