Former Newcastle Knights player Jarrod Mullen selling Merewether home

FORMER Newcastle Knights playmaker Jarrod Mullen has listed his Merewether home for sale, 18 months after it was meticulously renovated in a virtual rebuild.


Versatile: The Merewether house has a functional and flowing layout. “The old home had a pool there but that’s not reflected in the floor plan – it’s virtually a completely new home,” agent Ben Robinson said.

Robinson’s Ben Robinson will open the four-bedroom house at 23 Patrick Street for its first inspection on August 26, from 12pm to 12.30pm.

He has listed the property for between $2.4 million and $2.6 million, “off the strength” of the sale of Yarrum Designer Homes’ display suite at 44 Llewellyn Street for $2.2 million. “There’s been a lot of early interest in this property,” Mr Robinson said. “It’s one of the best streets – close to Bar Beach Bowling Club, Empire Park and The Junction. It’s a quality corner block with three living areas and a master suite with its own balcony, ensuite and walk in wardrobe. It’s great for someone who wants to downsize to a low maintenance block.”

The lower level of the house on 355 square metres boasts an open plan lounge, dining and stone island kitchen with access to an alfresco entertainment area with outdoor kitchen; a living area with wet bar; two toilets and double garage. The upper level hasfour bedrooms, two bathrooms and a rumpus. Mr Robinson said Mullen engaged RTC Groupand Gold Coast interior designer JudiLaycock to bring his vision to life.

Vista: Graeme Brownlow said the apartment’s strengths included its character, high ceilings and location. “You can look through the bay windows down to the harbour.”

HARBOUR VIEWSAN apartment in a tightly held boutique development close to the harbour offers stylish and spacious living.

Walkom’s Graeme Brownlow said much of the interest in 202/46 Watt Street in Newcastle, which he has listed for $1.22 million, has come from downsizers. “They want to enjoy the lifestyle of the harbour and foreshore without having to mow a backyard.”

The 136-metre apartment is on thefirst level in Melissa Caulder-Mason’sM on Watt development,which comprises two buildings, including one constructed around 1930 to hold six two-bedroom apartments. The apartment is in the original building and includes three bedrooms, a stone kitchen, cornices, a terrace, two bathrooms and two spaces in the city’s first car stacker. Open for inspection 1.30pm to 2pm, Saturday, August 26.
