World news – Radio veteran Ray Hadley lists $ 7 million homes for sale


He could break many radio rating records, but Ray Hadley is unlikely to break real estate records with the sale of his sprawling Dural estate.

The 2GB morning announcer space may have five bedrooms, space for 10 cars, and two swimming pools, but « only » has price expectations in the range of $ 7 million.

The sale comes as the recently discounted 66-year-old and his partner Sophie Baird – a colleague at Nine Radio – are finally getting married next month after four COVID-19 delays in 2020.

« My kids moved on and the property deserves a family, not just two, » said Hadley.

« As we approach the next phase of our lives, we will split our time between Sydney and the Gold Coast, although my three grandchildren will focus on Sydney for the time being. »

Hadley, who has no plans to turn the microphone off, has lived on the two-acre Dural property since the mid-1990s. He broadcast a lot of the shelter last year for health reasons during the pandemic.

In 2006, Hadley had Denton Homes build the five-bedroom, 1,115-square-foot main house in gardens designed by Rolling Stone Landscapes.

This includes two swimming pools, one with water flowing over stone walls. There is accommodation for 10 vehicles, four in the garage and six in the barn. There is also an opportunity for those looking for a growing area for animals, with a range of paddocks perfect for horses or alpacas.

About 12 months ago the farmhouse, which actually dates back to 1919 when it was built by the pioneering Sagars farming family, was renovated by Gremmo Homes.

It is certainly a good time to sell as Dural is considered a hotspot suburb due to its abundance of lifestyle properties not far from the city.

He is hoping for a high $ 7 million sale as other dural acreage has been reached in the mid-range of $ 8 million, the last one on Uralla Road last month.

Collusso described the house as a quaint semirural escape just 10 minutes from Castle Towers and the Sydney Metro.

« This is a rare opportunity to secure unmatched acreage in Dural’s Blue Ribbon District, » he said.

Recent land sales in The Hills included $ 6.5 million in Kenthurst to horse trainer Chris Waller, the purchase of $ 8.4 million in Middle Dural by racehorse owner Adam Carney and his wife Tayla, and a sale of the two-hectare property Gone With The Wind style Kenthurst estate valued at $ 7.2 million. Longuevue, which appeared in MKR and The Bachelorette.

After the wedding, the couple will still call the Hills home as they downsize to a new townhouse.

Starting in 2023, Hadley and Baird will have a new apartment on the Gold Coast after securing an apartment in a luxury Main Beach complex not far from their Bolthole.
