Drew Petrie is a former AFL footballer who played for North Melbourne and West Coast, where he pulled on the boots for his final season in 2017. He played 332 AFL games, kicking an impressive 444 goals. Since retiring from footy his family have laid down their roots in Perth, where he’s tackling his new role as West Coast’s player development manager.

First Home:

I bought my first home in Kensington in 2004 and it was a single-fronted, semi-attached three-bedroom house just a few stops from Southern Cross Station. My dad is a real estate agent so I remember he did the bidding for me. We went a little over budget, but I love the property and I’ve held on to it almost 20 years later, so there’s no regrets.

Current Home:

We are currently renting in Perth and just love the location of our place. It’s 800m from the beach so we walk there daily and my wife and I like to go for runs along the coastline. As long as we are living in Perth we will try to stay close to the beach.

Dream Home:

I’m just happy with any home that our kids are comfortable in, with space to play and grow into. We’d love a house that can entertain and spaces where we can host and have friends around. I don’t mind too much about the fancy inclusions, it’s more about the location than the superficial trimmings for me.

It was to be his family’s “forever home”, but they’re loving life out west.
