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

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - News -

THE owner of iconic Way­mouth St pub the Grace Emily Ho­tel, Greg ‘‘Clanger’’ Kleyn­jans, is re­gret­fully sell­ing his city dig.

Clanger’s city pad is con­ve­niently lo­cated within walk­ing dis­tance to the pub but he says that with a sec­ond child on the way a move into sub­ur­bia now beck­ons.

The prop­erty, at 287 Way­mouth St, is zoned mixed use for res­i­den­tial or busi­ness and fea­tures a funky mu­ral on the side of the build­ing.

Don’t fear though, the Grace Emily will be stay­ing firmly in Clanger’s grasp so the live mu­sic it is fa­mous for will con­tinue.

When he’s not tied up with the pub, Clanger is busy as the boxing coach for AFL club Port Ade­laide .

With this in mind, it’s prob­a­bly wise to get in touch with Brock Har­courts’ Alex Ouwens be­fore at­tempt­ing to in­spect the prop­erty.

The prop­erty is be­ing mar­keted for $500,000-$550,000.

A HYDE Park prop­erty steeped in his­tory is about to be re­leased to the open mar­ket for the very first time in 85 years.

The home, at 34 Westall St, Hyde Park, was orig­i­nally bought by the cur­rent owner’s grand­mother in 1925, and has been home to five gen­er­a­tions of the fam­ily.

Cocks Auld agent Sharon Gray says the cur­rent own­ers, who are keep­ing a low pro­file, have told her that the house has a colour­ful his­tory, in­clud­ing be­ing used for share hous­ing dur­ing the de­pres­sion and as a lo­cal hos­pi­tal.

‘‘Which is co­in­ci­den­tal, as the last four mem­bers of the fam­ily that lived in the sep­a­rate cot­tage while they stud­ied at uni­ver­sity all grad­u­ated with de­grees in the med­i­cal pro­fes­sion,’’ Ms Gray says.

The prop­erty also has played wel­com­ing host over the past 29 sum­mers to the an­nual ten­nis tour­na­ments of the Westall St War­riors.

No ask­ing price is set but it’s cer­tain to make what was paid in 1925 look like pocket change. THE South Aus­tralian prop­erty in­dus­try is mourn­ing the loss of Bruce Venn, who died aged 76.

Mr Venn died on Fri­day, July 30, af­ter a long and dis­tin­guished ca­reer in SA real es­tate.

De­spite not start­ing in the in­dus­try un­til the age of 36, Mr Venn achieved much in­clud­ing al­most 40 years ser­vice to the Real Es­tate In­sti­tute of SA.

This Hyde Park house has been home to five gen­er­a­tions of one fam­ily.
