$1.2m ex­pected for song­writer’s home

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REALESTATE -

THE long­time Mount Ku-ring-gai home of the late coun­try mu­sic singer Ge­off Mack is be­ing sold.

Mack be­came fa­mous for writ­ing the 1962 hit I’ve Been Ev­ery­where. He bought the home shortly af­ter for £650. There are now more than 130 ver­sions of the song.

He died last year and the home is be­ing sold by his widow, Tabbi.

The five-bedroom house has a sep­a­rate garage with a sec­ond storey. It is be­ing ad­ver­tised as a pro­ject for a builder or ren­o­va­tor.

McGrath Hornsby agent Nick Ber­man has a price guide of $1.2 mil­lion to $1.3 mil­lion.

Mack’s mu­si­cal ca­reer kicked off in World War II, when he was an RAAF air­craft me­chanic in Bor­neo.

Once his tal­ent was recog­nised he was sec­onded to en­ter­tain the troops along with vis­it­ing stars.

Ge­off and Tabbi Mack and (in­set) their home at High St, Mount Ku-ring-gai.
