Benji Marshall buys luxurious family home in Hunter's Hill
NRL legend and Fox Sports analyst Benji Marshall and his award-winning podcaster wife, Zoe have bought a new home in Sydney’s Hunter’s Hill.
The move to the five bedroom, four bathroom $4.75 million abode comes 10 months after the birth of their second child, Ever.
The home was marketed by The Agency selling agent, Lee Dowdall as a “brilliant family haven sheltered by landscaping so ideal for families who covet their privacy”.
There’s a vibrant formal entertaining area plus a large, family-orientated in/outdoor space. The designer kitchen with huge island bench comes with walk-in pantry. There’s a dedicated home cinema room plus a study retreat on each level.
It was bought from Andrew Tieck, of the Franklins supermarket family, who’d given it a makeover after paying $2.48 million in 2014. The initial price expectations were $4.9 million to $5.1 million.
Their renovated 1940s Concord family home with four bedrooms and three bathrooms fetched $2,815,000. It had been their home base since 2014 when they paid $1,535,000, a year after their marriage.
New Zealand-born Marshall, 37, retired from the NRL at the end of last year after 20 seasons, playing 346 first grade games with Wests Tigers, St George Illawarra, Brisbane and South Sydney.
He is now one of the most respected commentators on Fox Sports.
