Sydney: May 01, 2014

 

Australian captain Michael Clarke has reportedly purchased a respectable five bedroom home in Sydney’s harbourside suburb of Vaucluse for 8.5 million-dollars.

 

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the previous owners of the house, the Curtis family, who owned the house since 2000, were looking to fetch 9.5 million-dollars but sold their property to Clarke and his wife Kyly Clarke on 21st March through a multinational corporation named Sotheby’s.

 

The Clarke’s will take possession of the Fitzwilliam Road property in early May and it is a fair trek from their early property of Fairfield in Sydney’s southwestern suburbs, the report added.
