AFL footballer Sam Reid sells Coogee penthouse

AFL footballer Sam Reid has sold a penthouse apartment in the eastern Sydney suburb of Coogee.

The Sydney Swans forward was seeking more than $1.8 million for the three-bedroom flat (pictured) which he bought for $980,000 in 2012 and occupied for a couple of years before relocating to South Coogee.

Reid – who in August signed a four-year contract with the Swans – has retained the dwelling as an investment in recent years.

In a low-rise block of five flats, and with ocean views, the property, with two car parks, was marketed by Belle Property’s Daniel Gillespie and Nicholas Keenan.
