NSW and Penrith Panthers superstar Nathan Cleary is now the proud owner of the beautiful luxury riverside home he grew up in after buying it from his parents.
According to ownership records, the four-bedroom, 892-square-foot property on the Nepean River in western Sydney recently swapped hands for $1.7 million.
Nathan’s father and Panthers coach, Ivan, bought the home for $1,175 million in 2013 when Nathan was still a teenager.
Nestled in a leafy setting with both indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, the contemporary home features large floor-to-ceiling windows that let in plenty of natural light.
The spacious home is located near BlueBet Stadium which will be very convenient for Panthers home games and practices.

The 25-year-old is one of the league’s top players and linked up with Penrith last year when he signed a $1.1 million per season contract to stay at the club.
Cleary is one of the highest-earning players in the NRL and typically the game’s highest-paid players receive extra attention, but there has been little disagreement over the salary offered to the halfback.
After leading back-to-back premiership wins, Cleary is now regarded as one of the greatest Panthers players ever.
Under his leadership, Penrith has made it to the last three Grand Finals while being named the Dally M halfback of the year twice.
The No. 7 was shattered to be ruled out of Origin game two with a serious hamstring injury, but hopes to be fit in time to return for the final game against Queensland on July 12.
“(I) knew it wasn’t right,” Cleary said when he picked up the hamstring complaint against the Dragons in round 14.

“That’s probably why I was so frustrated at first, I knew it wasn’t going to be the best result.
‘[Being out of game two] was probably the most crushing part. It’s not the best timing, but at the end of the day it can always be worse, so that’s the mindset I go with.
“I’ve never really done a hammy before, so I’m not too sure how the recovery process is going, but literally, right now, it’s one day at a time.”
