Outgoing Manly Sea Eagles coach Trent Barrett quietly lists Freshwater home for sale

Written by The ReReport

Outgoing Manly Sea Eagles coach Trent Barrett has quietly listed his stunning northern beaches home for sale, no doubt hoping for a quick pre-Christmas sale as he contemplates his next move.

Barrett, took over the coaching duties of the Sea Eagles in 2016, but handed in his 12 months notice in July, citing a lack of resources at the club.

He is still on the Manly payroll but has agreed to stay away from training.

In the meantime, former coach and first grade player Des Hasler will be returning to the club as its new head coach for 2019.

Hasler comes back to Manly after a six-year-stint as head coach with the Bulldogs, which ended controversially in 2017.

He has remained a long-term northern beaches resident and owns a property in Collaroy, only a few suburbs away from Barrett’s home.

Barrett’s Freshwater home has been listed on with no identification or auction date, however CoreLogic data confirms the property is in Barrett’s name and has been on the market for six days.

A price guide for the property has not been made public. The selling agent is remaining tight-lipped about all aspects of the sale or the ownership of the property.

The report shows he paid $2.41 million for the property in August 2015. It remains the fifth-highest price paid for a property in the tightly-held street.

According to the listing, the property has a new Hampton’s shaker style kitchen with “stunning waterfall edge stone island bench and appliances.”

The “glamorous” main bedroom has walk-through wardrobes and a new ensuite.

Other features include a sandstone gas fire place in the main lounge area with solid timber floors throughout, a covered outdoor dining area that looks out over the gas and solar-heated swimming pool with glass edge, to the manicured lawns beyond.

The home is designed with privacy in mind, and established gardens hide an idyllic north-facing back yard.


The home has a fifth bedroom that could also be used as a study/home office, guest room or au pair quarters, and it has an convenient bathroom next door.

The double garage is air rated, remote controlled and has internal access, and the gardens are kept lush with irrigation systems.

The home is alarmed and has ducted, reverse-cycle airconditioning, remote-controlled shade awnings and a large storage room.

The property is being marketed by long-term local Freshwater agent James Smyth, of Smyth Estate Agents, and open for inspection by qualified appointment.

My Smyth said he was unable to make any comment in relation to the sale of the home, the identity of its owner, the price guide or the level of buyer interest.
