A chance to somewhat live the life of Ange Postecoglou has presented with the investor who just bought the soccer coach’s recently vacated family home fully furnished offering it for rent that way.
The three bedroom Tuscan themed townhouse at 1/75-81 Grange Road, part of the Villagio complex, is asking $2500 per week.
The bond is six times that – $15,000.
Suitors can move in from December 24.
Up and on
Mr Postecoglou and his wife, Georgia, paid $3 million for 1/75-81 Grange Rd in 2016 – retaining it as a Melbourne base since moving to Scotland two years ago for the ex-professional soccer player to manage Celtic FC.
It was put up for private sale in June, shortly after Mr Postecoglou was appointed to coach the United Kingdom’s Tottenham Spurs – a role reportedly earning over c$9m a year.
The price – $3.555m – was $255,000 over the upper guide.
It also sold a short 22 days after hitting the market (story continues below).
Kay & Burton’s Darren McMullin is managing the rental of 1/75-81 Grange Rd; at the front of the complex, it contains formal and informal lounge and dining spaces, a study and double garage.
On 379 square metres, it has a private front and side garden too.
There is a security alarm and video intercom entrance as well.
Villagio residents also have access to an indoor pool, spa and gym.
The street, while not considered AAA-Toorak by local agents, is walking distance to Toorak Village.
Toorak, Melbourne’s priciest suburb with a median value of over $5m, is six kilometres south east of the CBD.
