prop­erty spy

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

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Brock -

IT IS Op­er­a­tion Move for one of the coun­try’s most ex­pe­ri­enced and hon­oured sports doc­tors.

Brian Sando and wife Lee are sell­ing their beau­ti­ful Medindie home af­ter al­most 15 years.

For those not up with the movers and shak­ers on the sports-med scene, Dr Sando was a for­mer Olympic and Ade­laide Crows doc­tor, to name but a few of his high­pro­file clients.

The pe­riod fam­ily home, at 16 Et­trick Ave, fea­tures four bed­rooms plus study, for­mal and in­for­mal liv­ing and a vine-cov­ered out­door area that will be ideal for en­ter­tain­ing.

Dr Sando and his wife, who are down­siz­ing, re­cently bought a home in Kens­ing­ton Gar­dens from Klemich Real Es­tate di­rec­tor Matt Smith, who has listed their cur­rent prop­erty for sale.

Awa r d - wi n n i n g p h o t o g r a p h e r Bernard Van Elsen is opt­ing for a dif­fer­ent di­rec­tion. He’s up­siz­ing to a new home he bought from Toop & Toop in Wat­tle Park.

And it’s out with the old; Mr Van Elsen is auc­tion­ing his cur­rent home at 10am to­day with a price guide of $1.1 mil­lion to $1.2 mil­lion. The bun­ga­low is set in a tree-lined street in St Peters, close to schools, trans­port and the city. It f ea­tures pol­ished t i mber floor­boards, lead­light­ing and fire­places to add char­ac­ter. En­ter­tain­ing, mean­while, is best en­joyed out­side un­der the ve­randa. The prop­erty is listed with Toop & Toop agents Kay Mor­ris and Charles Cle­mente.

There are four bed­rooms in­clud­ing the mas­ter with en suite, built-in wardrobe and lead­light win­dow.

In an­other snip­pet of in­ter­est, we are told the beau­ti­ful St Al­bans Drive prop­erty on the cover of this week’s liftout was owned by for­mer Test crick­eter Greg Blewett and his then wife Jodie. Our spies tell us it was built by a wine­maker, who then moved on, and the Blewetts moved in.

They even­tu­ally sold it to the present own­ers. The list­ing agents are Brock Har­courts’ Megan Tam­lin and James Har­vey.

GOOD MEDICINE: The Et­trick Ave, Medindie, prop­erty of Brian and Lee Sando.
