According to Realestate.com.au, Matty, 48, loved the friendly atmosphere of the Northern Beaches of Sydney after he moved there from Newcastle.

& # 39; Collaroy is a manual worker area. Every second you come across is a dealer, & said the former Newcastle Knights player.

Wow! The couple bought the four-bedroom property in Collaroy for $ 3,585 million in 2007. It is now expected to market up to $ 6.3 million. Pictured: the front of the house
