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.
