Wests Tigers veteran Robbie Farah has been busy off-field, with the completion of another of his inner-west residential development projects.

He’s now seeking tenants for the Wareemba townhouses.

It was bought with his siblings Jason and Jessica during his 2017 stint with South Sydney Rabbitohs.

They paid $2,406,000 for the 1920s knockdown-rebuild on 695 square metres, and commissioned CK Design­ to create a contemporary townhouse duplex.

One of the four-bedroom, two-bathroom homes has been offered this week at $1350 a week.

The master bedroom comprises his-and-hers walk-in wardrobes, ensuite and a private north-facing balcony­.

Through the entry with double-storey glass is the lounge, dining and kitchen, complete with butler’s pantry, which then flows to the integrated alfresco living space complete with outdoor kitchen. That runs on to manicured gardens and a lap pool.

Richard Matthews Real Estate agents Jesse Di Loreto and Lionel Coombs are handling the rental.

Farah has set himself up for life in retirement after the NRL, with a number of property investments over his long career.

Farah bought his first property in 2006, a few years into his Tigers tenure­, securing a two-bedroom unit in Annandale for $500,000.

He co-owns properties with his sports physio brother Eddie in Cabarita­, Concord and Maroubra, which total nearly $3.5 million.

They tried to offload the Concord West project last year in the declining market, but failed to find a buyer and it was passed in at $2.12 million. It became a $1250-a-week rental.
