Former Manly Sea Eagle Anthony Watmough and his wife, former model Elle McLeod, have bought back into the northern beaches market.
They have secured a four-bedroom Fairlight home for $2,050,000. Watmough, who played 278 games for the Sea Eagles, made the purchase after selling their transformed North Curl Curl home.
Their latest purchase won’t require too much renovation work this time as it was marketed by LJ Hooker selling agents as an inspired contemporary take on a classic 1900s beach house.
The reinvented single level cottage, which delivers a relaxed retreat for year-round entertaining on its 250sqm block, had been listed with $2.2m hopes. It comes with an alfresco space with built-in barbecue. It last sold at $1,776,000 in 2015.
The NRL legend was in the news when his Sydney CBD restaurant Cubby’s Kitchen briefly closed earlier this month after an unknowing COVID-19 infected diner had visited the Lebanese restaurant.
Fairlight has 15 properties currently listed for sale, according to realestate.com.au. The median house price over the last year sits at $2,323,000, and based on five years of sales, Fairlight has seen a compound growth rate of 6 per cent for houses
