The Brisbane-based former Wallabies captain Stephen Moore has listed what was once billed as his Paddington forever home.

It is reportedly expected to fetch somewhere between $3 million and $4 million.

It was only in July this year when, after living in 12 different properties over the past decade, the Queensland rugby legend and his wife, advised they were putting down roots, having finished building "their forever home" in the sought-after suburb of Paddington.

“We were talking about this dream for so long,” Moore told The Courier-Mail.

Moore told the local paper they planned to live in the home for at least the next decade.

“After all this time, we’ve got a place we can call home — and that’s a really good feeling.”

The newly built five-bedroom and three-bathroom contemporary, three-level house has views of the city skyline.

Its five bedrooms are spread across the three levels of the home that replaced a rundown 1930s cottage.

The master wing, complete with ensuite and study nook, is accessed by a bridge.

Moore says it is time to sell as his family of three children needed more space.

The former player turned corporate pastoralist has a bigger block of land back at Bardon.

“We are looking at doing a potentially bigger thing at Bardon, looking for a bit more space with three young kids under seven years … and (with) two young boys running around we made the decision to get a bigger plot,” Moore told The Weekend Australian.

“It will be a similar type of project.”

Moore, who played more than 125 tests, bought the existing timber house on 405sq m in Howard Street 10 years ago, which he rented out while he was living in Canberra playing rugby for the Brumbies.

He spent three years planning with its design by Brisbane architect Tim Stewart.

It was built by Graya Construction.

Expressions of interest close November 8.

“We are doing it now because the home still presents as new; we thought it was the right time. We will probably have to rent nearby and we will stay in the area.”

Matt Lancashire and Josh Brown are handling the listing.

Following his retirement in 2017, Moore moved into the corporate world. He is general manager for corporate and commercial at The North Australian Pastoral Company.
