Former Fox Sports director of television Rod Law is booting his immaculate terrace in East Melbourne, opposite the MCG.
The sports media veteran has completely transformed the elegant double-storey,
five-bedroom home at 114 Vale St during his tenure and now has $6m-$6.5m price hopes.
Law, who was also previously part of Sam Newman’s controversial You Cannot Be Serious podcast and now does some work as a consultant, said the property had been a “labour of love” over the past decade.
“I’ve always had a project on the go – ever since I bought my first house back in the mid-’90s, I’ve always had something cooking,”
he told Property Confidential.
“I’ve been mulling this decision (to sell) for many years. I’m going to regret it, but sometimes you’ve just got to do it.
“Living parkfront in the middle of town, particularly when you’ve got two dogs, is pretty special. Not only that, I love my neighbours.”
A formal lounge room opens to a balcony with city views, while a large open-plan kitchen and dining area leads to an informal sitting room. There is also a private internal entertainer’s terrace. The property has had about three different kitchens during Law’s time – and an initial sixth bedroom had become an added living space.
He said the view had been the most incredible part of living at the home. “The best way I can put it is that it has a touch of that Central Park (NYC) vibe, looking across a park at the city,” he said.
RT Edgar agent Jack Edgar said the Hawthorne-brick Victorian was one of only about 20 houses with that view (top right) from its position directly opposite Yarra Park and the MCG.
“It’ll bring in heaps of different buyer profiles – it’s a great spot and really tightly held. If you’re a footy fan, you’ve got the ’G right there, and it’s a spectacular renovation,” he said.
Law said he loved East Melbourne and intended to look for something else in the suburb.
