NRL star Anthony Watmough sells his beautiful Sydney beach cottage for $ 2.5 million and makes a neat profit of $ 300,000 in less than a year
Former NRL Manly Sea Eagles star Anthony Watmough and wife Elle have just sold their beautiful Northern Beaches cottage for a tidy profit.
The couple bought the Sydney property just under a year ago for $ 1.84 million and spent a year transforming the home with a $ 300,000 renovation before it sold for an estimated $ 2.5 million, The Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday.
The renovation, which included a rear extension and deck, transformed the modest 1950s home and helped the pair walk away with a good $ 300,000 plus nest.

A short walk from North Curl Curl beach, the house features five bedrooms and two bathrooms, with high ceilings and an open plan living area.
The luxurious lounge has a modern all-white interior, made cozy with the home’s original fireplace with access to the kitchen offering an open inclusive family life.
The newly renovated kitchen is a chef’s delight and has a Smeg oven and gas hob, plenty of storage with a butler’s pantry and cute touches like a farmhouse-style sink and crockery.

Tulio Sila of Upstate Real Estate told the Daily Telegraph that the couple is moving to a nearby house in Fairlight.
“It’s not a house to be renovated, but Elle will probably make her mark on it anyway,” he said.
“They weren’t looking for another property to mirror, this is more of a long-term family home for them.”
Anthony and Elle tied the knot in 2013 and share four-year-old daughter Jagger.
The retired athlete also shares daughter Claudia and son Jake with ex-girlfriend Lauren Newcombe.
