Cricket star Ben Cutting sells brand new Brisbane home
CRICKET star Ben Cutting has sold his Brisbane new-build for just over $1 million as he makes moves to get ahead in the property game.
The Brisbane Heat all-rounder, alongside his television presenter/model girlfriend Erin Holland, has been trying to sell the luxury home in Cannon Hill since June last year.
After going through two previous agents and failing to sell at auction, the Hamptons-style property at 28 Stanton Street has finally changed hands for $1.06 million.

Records show Cutting purchased the 405sq m block of land for $530,000 in 2017.
Construction on the home began in November 2017 by Valeco Homes construction manager Trent Purcell.
Selling agent Frank Lombardi of Place – Kangaroo Point said the property had sold to a young family from the Wynnum/Manly area.
Mr Lombardi said the home attracted 40 groups during the sales campaign and he received five offers for it.
“Being the third agent in, I was surprised with the numbers I had through it,” Mr Lombardi said.
“Cannon Hill’s just such a popular area.
“There’s lots going on, with the East Village (development) starting to come together, and it’s a good family area with really good schools.”
Even though he plans to have a few more years on the field, Cutting is looking to a future in property development.
The 31-year-old has his home at Hawthorne, an investment property at Morningside and another house he built at Cannon Hill.
“Playing cricket doesn’t last forever, unfortunately,’’ he told The Courier-Mail.
“Many finish up playing in their mid-30s.
“I’d like to run this business on the side of cricket and eventually the business will overtake cricket so it’s a seamless transition.”
