IN their sport­ing ca­reers, they were al­ways on the move – on and off the play­ing arena. Now it has come to one of a more per­ma­nent na­ture.

For­mer Fitzroy and Port Ade l a i d e Ma g p i e s foot­baller Roger De­laney and his wife, ex-Thun­der­bird net­baller Jac­qui, are sell­ing their West Lakes home.

The im­mac­u­lately pre­sented home fea­tures four bed­rooms, gourmet kitchen and an in­ground pool with an un­der­cover paved en­ter­tain­ing area.

‘‘We were at­tracted by the unique de­sign and dif­fer­ent ar­chi­tec­tural s t r u c t u r e , ’ ’ Mr De­laney says.

‘‘It’s a re­ally open and light space with ev­ery door at the rear open­ing on to the gar­den. ‘‘It’s a very friendly, invit­ing home.’’ The home was listed with LJ Hooker West Lakes agents Frank Az­zollini and Rose­mary Auric­chio and will go to auc­tion at 1.30pm on Fe­bru­ary 27.

The for­mer Water­worth Hospi­tal – 1c Pier St, Glenelg – is on the mar­ket. Built in 1850 as a hospi­tal, the prop­erty has also been used as a nurs­ing home.

It was sold and ren­o­vated and di­vided into three res­i­dences six years ago.

Now Brock Har­courts Mag­ill agent Alexan­der Zadow has listed one of the res­i­dences on the mar­ket with a price guide of $1.325 mil­lion.

‘‘The set of three are iconic sea­side build­ings and many Ade­laide peo­ple would know of them as they have walked or driven past over the years,’’ he says.

The prop­erty boasts a flex­i­ble floor­plan and up to four bed­rooms, a large sit­ting room and tim­ber kitchen with gran­ite bench­tops.

The es­planade is about 200m away while Mose­ley Square and Jetty Rd are within walk­ing dis­tance.

The prop­erty can be in­spected from 1pm to 1.45pm to­day and ex­pres­sions of in­ter­est close at 5pm on Wed­nes­day, March 3.

In other news, Raine & Horne Mead­ows and Strathal­byn pro­pri­etor Gary Dawe was awarded 2010 Ci­ti­zen of the Year at the District Coun­cil of Mt Barker Aus­tralia Day Awards.

Mr Dawe has been on a large num­ber of com­mu­nity groups, in­clud­ing Mead­ows 150 Co­or­di­nat­ing Com­mit­tee, and has been in­volved in many lo­cal ac­tiv­i­ties and sports over many decades.

‘‘I just do what I love to do, along with many vol­un­teers, to help make Mead­ows a great place to live,’’ he says.
