Lon­don call­ing for Adams

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REAL ESTATE -

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.
