Olympic legend Usain Bolt has settled into a luxury waterfront apartment on the Central Coast while he attempts to kickstart a second career as a professional football player.
The “world’s fastest man” moved to Australia earlier this year to participate in a pre-season trial with A-League side Central Coast Mariners.
He is renting the five-bedroom, four-bathroom penthouse of the exclusive Araluen apartment building, which is located an hour north of Sydney in the Central Coast suburb of Point Frederick.
According to a Domain property report, “The Sky House” sold in August last year by LJ Hooker Terrigal for a record A$1.9 million.
The 1089 square metre apartment spans the entire top floor of the luxury apartment complex and was described as offering “premium living with a resort-style ambience” in its 2017 listing.
Bolt’s new home features a large outdoor living area which was “built for year round entertaining”. The space is equipped with a grassy lawn, a covered deck area and a private heated outdoor spa.
Other luxury features include a master bedroom with a large walk-in wardrobe and ensuite bathroom, a contemporary kitchen equipped with Caesarstone bench tops and Miele appliances, a three-car garage and private floor lift access.
Bolt recently made his debut for the club in the final 20 minutes of their 6-1 win over a Central Coast select side.
“I think the big fellow did OK,” Mariners coach Mike Mulvey said of Bolt after that game.
“He was on a hiding to nothing a little bit nervous, but I’m quite happy with him.”
