Former St George Dragon prop Paul Vaughan’s infamous Pandemic party house has been put up for rent in anticipation of his move to the UK.
It’s the Shellharbour home where Vaughan hosted 12 teammates last July for a barbecue in defiance of health regulations.
After breaching NRL and NSW government biosecurity rules, Vaughan was banned for eight games and fined $50,000 and then had his contract terminated, just five games short of 100 games for the club.
His St George team-mates, some of whom ran away at night to evade police, have been fined a total of $305,000 under the Covid lockdown laws, which have now all but been lifted.
Vaughan, who has played 24 games for the Canterbury Bulldogs this year, has signed for Super League club Warrington.
He’s asking $1,395 a week for the home, and the listing says it will be available in November.
Showing plans for the 31-year-old prop overseas, the home has been announced for a minimum of six months, but with the option of up to two years.
Located just one street from the ocean, the five-bedroom home features a central family room, dining room and kitchen that open through bi-fold doors to an outdoor patio overlooking the pool, recently paved in sandstone.
It adjoins a cottage, spa and cubicle on a 675 sq m block.
Vaughan paid $1.382 million for the renovated 1960s home.
