Children's entertainer Sam Moran, best known as the Yellow Wiggle, has listed his Rozelle home he shares with wife Lyn.

Moran paid $955,000 for the 1880s worker's cottage in 2012, just after he was dumped by The Wiggles due to Greg Page returning.

Page retired from the role in 2006 due to ill health which resulted in Moran taking over the role the following year.

He had acted as his understudy and filled in for Page over 150 times for four years prior to taking the Yellow Wiggle skivvy on a permanent basis.

The freestanding cottage near O'Connor Reserve has seen a face lift during Sam and Lyn's ownership including a striking yellow door, more than a nod to his old employers.

The home has three bedrooms, one bathroom, two fireplaces and a large deck with district views.

Cobden & Hayson agents Peter Cobden and Stephanie Lees are marketing the home for a September 23 auction.

Moran began performing with The Wiggles in 1998 having appeared in Haste to the Wedding and "Evie and the Birdman, both written by John Field, The Wiggles songwriter and brother of Blue Wiggle Anthony Field.

It was hosting and touring with the Dorothy the Dinosaur Show that he met future wife Lyn, a dancer for The Wiggles who was playing Dorothy the Dinosaur at the time. The couple had their first child Eloise in 2010.

Moran played Professor Singalottasonga and Dapper Dave in the group's TV series.

More recently Moran launched TV show Play Along with Sam, an educational music block programme.

The album went to #1 in Australia on the iTunes Children's Music Charts.

He has recently wrapped up touring the show on the stage.

Moran will be hoping for a result similar to the current Yellow Wiggle Emma Watkins and her husband, Purple Wiggle Lachlan Gillespie.

They recently sold their 1896 converted English-style manor apartment in Wollstonecraft for $2.05 million, having paid $1,395,000 in 2014.
