Nadia Bartel admits it was ‘difficult’ selling her $4million marital home in Melbourne after splitting from AFL star husband Jimmy

Nadia Bartel certainly knows a thing or two about heartbreak.

And the ex-footy WAG revealed this week that one of the hardest things about 2020 was selling the Melbourne home she once shared with ex-husband Jimmy.

She told the Herald Sun putting their five-bedroom St Kilda West property on the market at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic was a ‘difficult time’.

Despite the impact of a global health crisis on the property market, the exes still managed to secure a $3.915million sale in October.

The one-time AFL glamour couple had listed the home with a price guide of $3.7million to $4million back in July.

According to public records, they’d paid $3.76million for the house in 2017, meaning they made a small profit on the sale.

Nadia and Jimmy, who share custody of sons Aston, five, and Henley, two, spent the last two years of their marriage living at the Mary Street address.

Speaking about the property in 2018, Nadia praised its ‘traditional Victorian feel’.

She added: ‘There are lots of beautiful details that give the house character, such as timber-framed windows, detailed timber fireplaces, intricate leadlight windows, bay windows, and high ceilings with decorative plasterwork.’

A year before buying in Melbourne, the Bartels had sold their Geelong home for $2.25million in December 2016.

Jimmy and Nadia announced their separation on August 15 last year, but it’s believed they actually split two months prior.
