Swimming royalty Susie O’Neill is reluctantly selling her family’s stunning Brisbane home of almost 19 years, in a move she describes as “emotional”. Madame Butterfly says she still remembers the “wow” moment when she first saw the house and has described what awaits the new owners, including a special pool that’s one of only two in Australia.

Australian swimming legend Susie O’Neill is selling her family’s riverfront Brisbane home of almost 19 years.

It’s a reluctant move for the elite swimmer and eight-time Olympic medallist, who fondly remembers raising her two teenage children and celebrating many milestones in the Yeronga property.

Ms O’Neill bought the two-level, five-bedroom, three-bathroom house at 401 Brisbane Corso with her medico husband Cliff Fairley, an ophthalmologist, in 2001, and still remembers the day she first saw it.
