Former Socceroo, Roar player cuts property ties with QLD

Former Socceroo and Brisbane Roar player Brett Holman and his wife Femke have cut property ties with Queensland, with the couples two remaining holdings changing hands.

The couple, who are relocating overseas, have been on a selling spree since early 2020, off-loading four properties.

Their original Peregian Beach pad sold for $2.55 million in July 2020, with their New Farm house changing hands for $2.5 million in January 2021.

Their luxe Balgownie Drive residence at Peregian Beach is also now under offer after being listed for sale in April.

Property records show it was purchased in November 2020 for $1.15 million, and was sold by Stephen Brown of Brown & Co Realty.

While the sale has not yet settled, it is understood to have sold for close to $2 million.

And a vacant block of land purchased by the couple for $1.75 million on February 2021 has also sold.

The sale included plans for ‘Casablanca’, a European villa-style design residence.

At the time of its listing, Century 21 Conolly Hay Group Noosa Heads agent Jonathan Tomasini said the family had planned to build on the site, but “life changed”.

Mr Tomasini said the vacant block recently settled for $2.85 million – a tidy $1.1 million profit in 16 months.

“It was bought by a Sydney-based buyer who intends to get their own plans done and get started in probably two years once the construction industry settles down,” Mr Tomasini said.

“There was loads of interest and some people were upset they missed out but the buyer didn’t muck around and Brett and Fem can move on.”

The Peregian Beach block is directly opposite a beach access point, and is just 1.4km from the Peregian Beach Village and a 15 minute drive from Noosa Heads.

Holman, who also played in the English Premier League for Aston Villa, founded a football academy on the Sunshine Coast.

Late last year, Holman successfully sued the Brisbane Roar after arguing that the club had not paid an insurance claim after he suffered a career ending knee injury in 2018.

His claim, filed in District Court, alleged the Roar had received $369,433.26 in insurance money, but only paid him $198,456.06, which the club claimed was all it was required to do under the insurance policy and his contract.

The club was ordered to pay Holman the entirety of the insurance payout, plus interest and court costs.
