Inside $9 million beachside ‘party house’

Bennett made a few savvy investments during in his time at the Broncos, the most recent being in 2017 when he and partner Dale Cage bought a house in the Queensland suburb of Yeronga for $1.975 million, after moving out of his Brisbane family home following the breakup of his marriage.

If he wants to make the move to the spiritual home of the Rabbitohs in Redfern, Bennett’s options are fairly limited, with just four terraces and a mix of apartments currently on the market.

The smart move could be to nearby Maroubra, where the club are in the process of building a centre of excellence at Heffron Park, in which they plan to move to by the end of 2020.

Check out a few of the properties currently on the market that could be perfect for the new Rabbitohs’ coach.

There is also a bamboo fringed garden with a water feature to provide the famously media shy coach the privacy he would require, while the main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and balcony.

If he wants to throw a footy around, there is a large lawn in the backyard.
