Sydney Swans co-captain Luke Parker pocketed $3.2 million when he auctioned his Malabar property on Saturday.

The 27-year-old midfielder had listed the five-bedroom house with $3 million hopes.

Parker bought it for $2.66 million in 2017, when it promptly became an $1800-a-week rental, and then ­offered again at $1700 last year.

Ray White Maroubra agent Nader Hotait took bids from three keen parties for the two-storey home which is ­encased in glass.

Set on a 375sqm block, the modern home features ocean bay views from its Victoria St location.

Parker is a dab hand in property, having been selected by realestate.com.au to provide video content on his projects undertaken with his seven-year partner interior decorator, Kate Lawrence.

Parker, whose Swans are three games out of the eight, and set to miss the AFL ­finals for the second year in a row, recently finished working on a stunning ­duplex in Matraville with Lawrence.

Tenants are being sought for one of the Lawson St houses, which has four bedrooms and three bathrooms. There is a pool in its north-facing yard, plus large entertainers’ deck and grass.

“The landlord was open to including pool and garden maintenance as part of the letting,” its Belle leasing agent Luke Overs advised.

Earlier this year Parker sold a Maroubra investment for $1.45 million, having paid $1.3 million in 2016.

Parker was picked up in the 2010 draft by Sydney after playing for the Dandenong Stingrays.
