Moving On Up: Homes Olympic shooter James Willett has his sights on

12.08.21

Silverwoods resident (James Willett), did another follow up piece (Online) on James again just prior to him heading to the Olympics! James Willett is a world champion trap shooter competing in the Olympics this month.

He has won gold, silver and bronze medals at Commonwealth Games events as well as World and Oceanic Championships.

Next week he will be shooting for gold at the summer games in Tokyo.

FIRST HOME

Amy, my girlfriend, and I first rented a small unit in Mulwala in 2017 where we first moved in together.

It was a small two-bedroom, one-bathroom unit in Bayly St.

It suited our budget the best at the time and we stayed for about 10 months before we moved to another rental in Yarrawonga due to our first one being sold.

CURRENT HOME

Amy and I have just moved into our fantastic three-bedroom, two-bathroom Kennedy Builders home in Silverwoods Estate Yarrawonga.

This is a perfect location for the both of us as Amy works in Wangaratta, which is only a 35-minute drive, and it’s nice and close to my family farm near Mulwala where our private Olympic standard shooting range is.

The other really nice part about living in Silverwoods is having the new Sebel resort and Black Bull Golf Course so close, which provides somewhere to dine and entertain when we have friends visit.

We are very impressed with the quality of the home, with its spacious alfresco facing north to enjoy the sun and our gas log fire to enjoy in the colder months.

There’s also plenty of space in the house to allow friends to stay when we have training sessions at the shooting range on the farm, which is really nice.

I am very fortunate to be able to live in such a nice spot so close to Lake Mulwala and enjoy all of the facilities on offer locally.

DREAM HOME

I would love to have a place somewhere in the heart of the trap shooting world in Italy’s North overlooking Lake Garda.

There are many Olympic trap ranges close by including the largest range in the world in Lonato.

It’s also close to where my Perazzi Shotgun is made in Brescia.
