Paul and Tami Roos list redundant Coogee apartment

The former Sydney Swans AFL coach Paul Roos and wife Tami have listed their luxury Coogee apartment, given they divide their time these days between Melbourne and Hawaii.

They bought the 247 sqm apartment in 2015, spending $2,165,000 on the Allen Jack+Cottier designed space.

Comprising three bedrooms and two bathrooms, the whole floor penthouse style Arcadia Street apartment features a large outdoor terrace.

Now its for sale through McGrath Coogee agents Mark McPherson and Emilee Tayyara, who have a price guide of $2.7 million for its March 18 auction.

It will be the first resale in the tightly held block of four.

The couple became Melbourne based due to Roos coaching commitments with the Melbourne Demons. Their sons used the apartment while completing their studies.

In Melbourne the couple sold their contemporary Tim Spicer designed Elwood home mid-last year for $3.27 million, then upgrading to nearby Brighton they spent $3.85 million on an ultra-contemporary four bedroom home bought from Allan Sinclair, the former Fitzroy player whose son, Callum plays for Sydney Swans.

Their Elwood home had cost $2.25 million in 2010, a month after they let go of their luxury Con Hairis designed South Coogee mansion for $5.4 million, just after Roos left the top job at the Swans.

Roos, who recently insisted he is more unlikely than ever to get back into the senior coaching role, coached the Sydney Swans to Premiership success in 2005, their first in 72 years.

The new Fox Footy recruit will co-host League Teams with Dermot Brereton for the upcoming season.

In a recent interview with The Daily Telegraph, Roos said the family wish to spend more time in Hawaii, where they bought a home in 2010.

“Tami wants to spend more time with her family (in California)," he said.

"We think we can find a good balance between being in Australia — and my continuing to earn a good living and being involved in football — and starting a business which will give us opportunities in America as well as Australia."

"I think the next 12 months will be about finding where the balance lies and how we will spend time in each country.”

The couple run a health and wellness company, The Roos Synergy, which they are ready to reignite after putting it aside ahead of Paul's role at the Melbourne Demons. 

“Wellness is becoming a huge issue worldwide and American companies are probably more proactive in providing for their staff," Paul said.

“Eventually I wouldn’t mind doing things in America, either Hawaii or where Tami’s family is from."
