Original Bachelor benches investment home

THE original Bachelor Tim Robards is hoping to score $440,000 for his Newcastle investment property which he bought some 17 years ago when he was a chiropractor.

He got the first home buyer's grant when he paid $164,000 in 2001, suggesting he spent some time living in the home in his early days.
