Having bought around the corner in Clontarf, the former Aussie fast bowler Brett Lee and wife Lana sold their redundant Seaforth waterfront home on the weekend.

The paperwork was being signed inside the three level home as auction attendees were being turned away.

Clarke and Humel agents Cherie Humel and Michael Clarke was suggesting $4.8 million, with the last minute negotiations hooking a buyer at just shy of $5 million.

The couple paid $4.25 million for the four bedroom waterfront in 2013. Every level of the three storey home overlooks Middle Harbour, from the opulent master suite to the infinity pool and spa.

The fast bowler Brett Lee will be trading up into a four bedroom Clontarf residence that has cost more than $5 million. 

The Sydney home auction market commenced summer on a weaker note, according to Domain economist, Dr Andrew Wilson but sellers continued to flood the market ahead of the looming Christmas break.

"Although Saturday’s rate was the lowest recorded by the local market for over four months, it was nonetheless still a good result for sellers and reflected the surge in listings over recent weekends," Dr Wilson said.

It has been a big year for the current Australian test cricket team too, from the captain down.

Steve Smith took a shine to Balmain property when he snapped up his second investment on the pensinsula, a contemporary apartment in a boutique conversion of the Tin Sheds that cost $1.345 million.

The year's off field activity began when David Warner and wife Candice sold their home in South Coogee for $7.05 million with plans to build on a Maroubra oceanfront reserve block bought last year for $3.9 million.

Nathan Lyon has just upgraded in the Sutherland Shire.

He paid $3.8 million to buy a Port Hacking waterfront from the soccer legend Charlie Yankos and his wife, Jill.

Next weekend Mitchell Starc auctions his Mosman home after he and wife, Southern Stars cricketer Alyssa Healy bought the $5,235,000 North Curl Curl home of Jennifer Hawkins and her husband Jake Wall.

Starc has listed through McGrath Mosman’s Michael Rava with $5.5 million hopes.

Starc's fellow new ball partner in the Australian Test team attack, Josh Hazlewood, recently secured a Hunters Hill property for $3.8 million.
