Former Socceroo Jason Culina sells colonial mansionBryan Rose, the buyer of Mosman’s most expensive $22.5 million houseLiberal MP John Alexander sells his Putney home for $2.7 million
Former Socceroo Jason Culina and his wife Terri are set to flip another home renovation, cementing the football star’s new career status as a property investor.
The couple have rendered their Putney home almost unrecognisable since they purchased it three years ago for $1.77 million.
Gone is the red brick facade and segregated floor plan and in its place is a Victorian-style, five-bedroom home with a living area that overlooks a swimming pool.
The result is in large part thanks to Terri’s interior styling skills, which are showcased on the Eighty Spaces property staging and styling website the couple founded in late 2013 soon after Culina’s retirement from professional football.
The Mitchell Street property goes to auction on May 13 for $3.2 million through Nicholas McEvoy and Peter Grayson, of Bresic Whitney.
The Culinas’ last home renovation was of their 200-year-old colonial mansion Denham Court, which the couple sold in 2014 for $1,725,000. The Culinas owned the historic mansion only two years, restoring and modernising it after they bought it in 2012 for $1.2 million from Dr Keith Okey.
At the time Culina listed the National trust-listed property he told Title Deeds: “I still get my kicks commentating for SBS but in general I don’t miss football.”
The Culinas are already on the house-hunting trail to upgrade their next home, but meanwhile records suggest they have their next renovation lined up given a recent purchase of a restored farmhouse also in Putney for $2.9 million.
