Jason and wife Megan, who moved to Melbourne from Brisbane before Christmas, will relocate from Balwyn where they have been renting.
“It’s been great to see this side of town, but I’ll be relieved giving up the long drive to training,” said Jason. And he’s not wrong. The drive to Whitten Oval from Essendon should take about ten minutes, which is much more reasonable than the hour it can take to drive over from the east.
With AFL players the highest shelf celebrities in this city, Jason’s house hunting expedition has been well documented. It’s understood Jason inspected another house in Borrell Street Keilor, and another in Kensington, before deciding on Essendon’s tree lined boulevards.
Rendina real estate director Lou Rendina is understood to have negotiated the deal.
