When a V8 Supercar driver splits from his wife, the fallout is massive, this one coming with a six-figure price tag.
V8 Supercar driver James Courtney and wife Carys are unravelling a life they built together after announcing their separation last year.
Among the loose ends is their property portfolio, which while not the biggest built up by Queensland celebrities, does do something special – giving back to the troops via property.
The pair have two defence housing properties as investments, both of which are four bedders.
One — that they’ve owned in Eaton’s Hill in Carys’ name since 2010 – has just hit the market while the other in James’ name at Albany Creek since 2012 is still sitting pretty.
Mrs Courtney, who announced the couple’s separation on Instagram last year, has listed the Eatons Hill property for $610,000.
The Courtneys had paid $495,000 for the property nine years ago.
The couple’s home in Hope Island is registered under Carys’ name as well and it too is a four bedder — though one that has five bathrooms, a massive eight carparking capacity and a 1,876sq m block.
The couple sold their earlier forever home in Helensvale for $1.23m just over three years ago
In her Instagram announcement of the shock split, Carys said: “After 16 years together James and I have decided to separate. We share two amazing children and our priority is and always will be our children. My hope now is that we will continue to grow into a relationship as positive co-parents for Zara and Cadel.”
