Bought for 760k, selling for well north of three-million dollars!
The Australian professional surfer Adrian “Ace” Buchan, famous for a blue-eyed-blond-college girl look and whom you’d like to swing off his feet in a passionate hug, pinching and squeezing from head to knee, has listed his “forever house” a few hundred yards off world-famous Avoca Beach.
Buchan, who is thirty-nine and who competed on the WSL world tour from 2010 until 2021, famously beating Kelly Slater at big Teahupoo to win the Billbong Pro Tahiti in 2013, bought the house in 2007 for $760,000, but now seeks north of three-mill.
The four-bed, three-bathroom house with enough parking for a quartet of cars was built in 1980 and occupies a hunk of dirty of eight-thousand square feet.
“We love watching the ocean and surf conditions while we’re eating our breakfast. Full moons rising over the ocean are beautiful and sunsets over the lake are too,” Buchan told the real estate rags.
The selling agent ain’t wrong when he describes the joint as, “The perfect example of a gorgeous family home situated on one of the finest streets and sought-after neighbourhoods in Avoca Beach.”
Since moving in a decade-and-a-half ago, the Buchans have landscaped the gardens, put in a new kitchen and done up the bathrooms, as well as renovating the entire downstairs space, “ideal for teenagers and visitors” etc.
The garage, meanwhile, is a masterwork for anyone with too many surfboards.
“It’s a surfer’s dream,” says Buchan.
