Retired AFL sportsman Jarrad Waite (pictured, top) is selling another property in Melbourne’s north-west.
This time, it is his family home at 2 Head Street, Strathmore.
Mr Waite and his wife, Jackie, renovated the post-war dwelling after paying $1.4 million for it in 2016.
They relocated from Moonee Ponds where that same year they sold a renovated Edwardian at 38 Addison Street for $1.48 million – an auction result $200,000 over the reserve.
The Strathmore house, on a 655 square metre block near Napier Park, includes three bedrooms, separate lounge and dining areas, a second meals space and a paved outdoor entertainment zone.
The Waites installed a gas and solar heated pool, Alexkarbon director Charles Bongiovanni told the Herald Sun, in this item.
“They were going to design their new home around the pool,” Mr Bongiovanni said. “But a change of circumstances led to them refurbishing…instead”.
Head Street, Strathmore, is near the suburb’s revered Woodland Street, which is also the Essendon border.
The Strathmore train station is a few hundred metres away.
Mr Bongiovanni is quoting $1.35 million to $1.46 million ahead of the 2 Head Street auction on August 31.
Mr Waite was a forward with North Melbourne and Carlton before quitting the AFL competition in 2018.
Last March, the couple sold a 1960s double-storey Strathmore unit at nearby 2/242 Woodland Street for $750,000.
The investment, opposite Woodlands Park, cost them $790,000 in 2017.
