London calling for Adams
CHANNEL 9 reporter Amelia Adams has put her Frenchs Forest home up for rent having been appointed as the next European correspondent for Nine News.
Adams and her cameraman husband Luke and young family are set to relocate to London next month.
Adams says it’s been a whirlwind. “It’s a big logistic operation getting the kids and house all packed up,” she told me.
“But I’m just really excited to get over there and get stuck into the job.
“My four-year-old thinks we’re taking every toy and piece of Lego. We have to do night-time missions to the charity bins down the street.”
The house will be available from June 18.
Having initially sought tenants at $1050, the couple have dropped their expectations to $980 ahead of the impending move. Ray White Narraweena agent Katrina Bacon is handling the leasing.
The presenter paid $1.155 million in 2014, shortly before returning to Nine News Now after the birth of their first child Charlie. Amelia and Luke, who married in Byron Bay in 2008, had their second child Matilda in late 2016.
When settling back in Sydney after a stint in Brisbane, the couple initially bought a home in Arncliffe.
They paid $575,000 for the home in 2009, and sold for $700,000 in 2013 when upsizing to Frenchs Forest. The Frenchs Forest property has been the family home for the past four years. They like to camp out in the large backyard complete with big lawn and its own spa.
Set across one level, it has three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a home office. The open-plan living space flows to a covered alfresco dining area which looks across the tropical gardens on 670sqm.
Adams worked at Sky News Australia while she was completing her bachelor of communications in journalism at Charles Sturt University.
She later worked as a producer and reporter on Seven News and Sunrise, then joined Network Ten in Brisbane in 2005.
