Pizza King Sells Riverfront Home - Jason Adcock


Anthony Russo, founder of Pizza Capers, has sold his Sherwood home.

BRISBANE’S hunger for riverfront property is showing no signs of waning, with the home of a local pizza king selling for $2.345 million.

Pizza Capers founder Anthony Russo has offloaded his home at 9 Joseph Street, Sherwood, to a local family, who snapped it up after just a 20-minute inspection.


This property at 9 Joseph St, Sherwood, has sold.

Selling agent Jason Adcock of Adcock Prestige said the buyers had been renting on the other side of the Sherwood Arboretum when they discovered the property on one of their afternoon walks.

“They checked out the property online, then came and looked at it for 20 minutes and then bought it,” Mr Adcock said.

“It’s good to know the old (for sale) sign still works!”

Mr Adcock said the family was sold on the home’s position and absolute river frontage.

The house was ready to move in to as it had recently been renovated.

“It doesn’t have a pizza oven, but it does have a spectacular kitchen!” he said.

“And it has that incredible boat shed at the back, which you would never be allowed to build now — it’s bigger than a double-car garage.”

Mr Adcock said Mr Russo had downsized to a riverfront apartment in St Lucia.

“It is the dearest sale in Sherwood in the last two years,” he said.

“It sold for $435,000 more than what they paid six years ago, so that shows (the market’s) definitely having some growth.


This house at 9 Joseph St, Sherwood, has sold.

“There is not a lot of stock around and once people see quality property on the river, they’re making their move and they’re buying it.”

The four-bedroom, three-bathroom property sits on a huge, 1073 sqm block, with a private jetty.
