Tony Lockett is King of The Hill


SYDNEY SWANS legend Tony “Plugger” Lockett can add “King of the Hill” to his list of nicknames.

Well, that’s how his new $3.28 million acquisition at Cabarita Beach was marketed as offering.

Lockett, the specialist forward coach at the Swans, and wife Vicki have been shuffling around their property portfolio in recent months, culminating in the recent trophy home purchase on the north coast.


The shuffle started when they listed Roscoe Park, their longtime Southern Highlands retreat, last year.

They secured $4.2 million for the Moss Vale home, which was bought by Michelle Cameron, wife of Suncorp executive Michael Cameron.

The 40 hectare estate, which cost $1.2 million when Lockett retired from the Swans the first time, features a six-bedroom house with an indoor pool complex.

He took up cattle farming and greyhound racing.

After the Southern Highlands sale, Lockett hinted it was time for a sea change as their four daughters were grown up.

They did signal they didn’t intend leaving the Highlands altogether as, in another property move, the Locketts have secured a 750sqm land parcel in the Braemar village costing $820,000.

The rejigging of their portfolio has included the sale of a two-bedroom Mollymook investment apartment set in the beachfront Mariners block of six that had a $799,000 guide. It was snapped up in just three weeks through LJ Hooker Ulladulla agent Gary Cox.

Lockett, who scored 1360 goals in a career of 281 games, starting in 1983 with St Kilda and ending in 2002 with the Swans, sits at less than his playing days weight as a recent strict diet saw him go from 125 kilograms to a sporty 97.

He can, when tempted, use the internal lift at the opulent five-level home overlooking Cabarita Beach.

The King of the Hill marketing catch phrase came from listing agent, Mason Garten at Coastal Real Estate Group.

It was bought from Kyle and Natasha Williams, who paid $2.6 million in 2016.

The luxury home on 650sqm comes with 1090sqm living space including five bedrooms.

There’s a home office, billiards room and an outdoor swimming pool and spa.

A whole floor master retreat has a lounge, gym, dressing room, ensuite and balcony.

The rooftop terrace has approvals for an entertaining space with bar and cabana.

The couple has owned elsewhere in the area.
