UK-bound George Burgess to decide on Randwick apartment

South Sydney Rabbitohs star George Burgess will need to decide what to do with his almost completed Randwick apartment given his imminent move back to the UK.

In early 2016, Burgess spent just over $2 million on an off-the-plan purchase, with an intention to move into the boutique MHNDU-designed Epoque unit with his then girlfriend, interior designer, Joanna.

The now married couple had their third child only last month, with Blainey, Birdie and Boston all under three years of age.

Having recently inked a three-year deal to play for the Wigan Warriors in the ­English Super League, their three-bedroom garden apartment could instead ­become an investment or be listed for sale.

Local agents are, so far, unaware of any plans.

Burgess will no doubt be keeping an eye on his neighbour who is looking to flip another garden apartment at $2.45 million.

McGrath Coogee agents Nicholas Wise and Adrian Bo have been marketing the on-sale for six months without success.

The much-delayed project was a sellout through Laing & Simmons agent D’Leanne Lewis by late 2016.

She says settlements are now early October.

The development company, directed by prolific developer Ronnie Shulkin and Bernard Stang, bought the Higgs St site in 2014 for $3.66 million and secured ­approval in the Land and Environment Court in early 2016 for the four-storey block comprising eight apartments.

The Burgess family’s former Chifley home was sold late last year. It had been bought from his former teammate, builder Tim Grant.

Burgess’s former teammate turned estate agent, Beau Champion, sec­ured its sale at $1.6 million.
