Soccer champion Tim Cahill sells Caringbah South, Sydney waterfront trophy home

Soccer champion Tim Cahill has sold his waterfront Caringbah South trophy home yesterday ahead of its forthcoming auction.

It last traded for $5.25 million in late 2006 - a then suburb record on the Port Hacking River.

The professional footballer has spent little time there in the Sutherland Shire, living instead just outside of New York with his wife, Rebekah Greenhill and the couple's four children.

He now splits his time between the US and China.

His parents lived there in his absence, but set on 1260 square metres on the shores of the Port Hacking River in the Sydney southern suburb, the four level house was too much for them.

It was listed with Greg Gilbert of Greg Gilbert Real Estate.

517 Willarong Road, Caringbah South

It was set for the auction on June 25.

The current suburb record stands at $8.5 million, paid last November for a five-bedroom mansion on 4600 square metres on Fernleigh Road.

“I’ve only ever spent two to three weeks maximum in Australia at one time, so I’m looking at a lot of projects in the city — penthouses and probably more city living,” Tim Cahill told News Ltd papers. 

Cahill still owns a Horningsea Park property in Sydney's west bought with family in 1999 for $260,000.
