State of Origin Maroons legend Cooper Cronk has listed his bachelor townhouse for sale at twice what he paid during his NRL heyday.

Mr Cronk who shocked the NRL when he quit the Melbourne Storm at the top of his game, moving to Sydney to begin his post-rugby league life with wife Tara Rushton, had bought the townhouse in 2006.

He paid $579,000 for the two bedroom, two bathroom, single garage home in October 2006.

The property has been on the market a week, priced at between $1.2-$1.3m with Biggin & Scott – Richmond.

The property has been used as an investment home since the move from Melbourne to Sydney, listed at $825 a week just over a decade after he bought it.

The rent was increased to a high of $850 a week three years ago, and then dropped a month later to $795 a week which is was listed for throughout the Covid-19 epidemic.

The listing by Biggin & Scott – Richmond agent Lottie Miao-Bryce described the townhouse as “contemporary low maintenance living” suitable for young families and professionals.
