Cost of V8 star’s marriage split widens

The cost of V8 superstar James Courtney’s marriage breakdown has widened, with he and estranged wife Carys giving up on one of their houses at a $295,000 discount.

Unsurprisingly, the luxury home is a dream property “for the car enthusiast” with “two separate garages with room for four cars, two golf buggies or jet ski and enough off-street parking for at least another 4 cars”.

The Courtneys split very publicly mid last year, with Carys making an announcement on Instagram.

Since then, James has been active on social media, putting up the tree as a sole parent with the kids, and also posting from a boat during the Christmas holidays with family.

The couple had wanted $2.795 million for their four bedroom, four bathroom Hope Island dream home when it was listed on July 24 last year — just months after the split.

They were willing to negotiate come December with a price finally being settled on January 15 for $2.5 million.

One of the couple’s investment properties — with Defence Housing Australia — has also come on the market in Greater Brisbane.

The Hope Island home went through a major renovation by Bayden Goddard — the sought after re-designers of up-market properties along the Glitter Strip.

The renovation was described as being “of undeniable quality” which had “completely transformed this breathtaking home to a spectacular scale, exhibiting complete luxury in every aspect”.

“Manicured grounds, travertine terraces, sun-drenched tiled pool and spa, cabana with double BBQ and full bathroom — this is alfresco living at it’s finest for family and friends to congregate.”

The home also has a kitchen fit for a master chef with marble island bench, European appliances, Vintec wine fridge and a massive butler’s pantry.

The property is in Sanctuary Cove “recognised worldwide as Australia’s finest residential gated estate”, according to the listing.
