Labor politician Ed Husic, the Federal Member for Chifley, has sold his Blacktown investment property.

He retains his home at Colebee with wife Bridget Tilley in the upmarket Medalist housing estate which enjoys views of the 18-hole Greg Norman-designed championship golf course. 

Husic, who describes himself as “Blacktown, through and through”, secured $658,000 for the immaculately presented four bedroom brick home.

The 1995 Brickfield Place cul-de-sac offering was marketed as being located in a highly sought after pocket of South Blacktown. 

The home had 110 square metres of living space on its 470 square metre block. He listed it for sale last November through Harcourts agent Andrew Chrysanthou who had a $669,950 asking price following its unsuccessful March auction.

It last sold in 2000 at $128,500 having first sold in 1995 at $155,000. It has been recently a $460 a week rental, up on its $270 a week rental a decade ago.

Husic is the Shadow Minister for Employment Services, Workforce Participation and Future of Work and the Shadow Minister for the Digital Economy.

He was raised in Western Sydney, receiving his education at Blacktown South Public School and Mitchell High School, then among the initial wave of students to graduate from the University of Western Sydney.
