Adam Garcia, the performer who got his break on stage in Tap Dogs in the early 1990s, has decided to list his seventh-floor Carillon, Manly apartment bolthole.

The star, who now lives in London with wife Nathalia Chubin and their two daughters, is reluctant, but reckons it’s time to find a family home.

The two-bedroom, two-bathroom 159sqm Marshall St apartment had an initial $2.1 million to $2.3 million price guide through Georgi Bates and ­Claudia Merkert at Cunninghams Real Estate.

It has been amended to $2.2 million to $2.4 million.

“I’m finding it very hard to let go because it’s where my wife and I got engaged (in 2014) … it was the first place we lived together, and furnished, but one must be pragmatic,” he said.

When back in Manly while ­appearing on the 2013 Dancing With The Stars judging panel, he described the chance to surf, bike ride and swim daily as ­“absolutely joyous”.

It was Hot Shoe Shuffle, with David Atkins and Dein Perry, that took him to London in 1994, with the show becoming his springboard for a successful international acting career.

He had just wrapped a horror film in Los Angeles and was set to be shooting a film in South Africa until the pandemic lockdown. He will appear soon in the Kenneth Branagh-directed Hercule Poirot film Death on the Nile.

“I have two young children and the apartment would be too small for our family needs when we return. We’re looking to buy a family house instead,” he said.
