South Sydney Rabbitohs legend Greg Inglis has turned his focus off field as the Bunnies work out a new role at the Redfern club for the recently retired champion.

The 32-year-old is offloading his 1910 Coogee home, which has been tenanted in recent times.

Inglis, who now rents at Little Bay, secured the Coogee semi after his move from Melbourne at the end of 2010.

The Maroons and Kangaroos centre paid $1.1 million for the Bream St property, just around the corner from the beach and the Coogee Pavilion.

It had previously sold at $965,000 in 2004, so Inglis bought at the right time, just ahead of the five-year house price boom where Sydney prices typically rose by around 75 per cent.

The then two bedroom federation semi has been completely transformed from its drab state, but still sits behind its period facade.

McGrath Coogee agent Marnie Seinor is marketing the property for a June 1 auction with buyers told the price guidance was $2.8 million.

The rental estimate is $1900 a week.

Now, with a grand scale extension, it homes four bedrooms and two bathrooms across its now three levels and features designer interiors.

The top level is a dedicated entertaining space which opens to a wrap around terrace.

At the rear is a covered outdoor entertaining area with a fireplace.

Inglis wasn’t forgotten by his red and green former teammates this week as his former side crushed the Brisbane Broncos 38-6.

Cody Walker, Adam Reynolds and John Sutton all celebrated their tries in Inglis fashion with the goanna crawl, replicating Inglis’ iconic try celebration in the 2014 grand final win.

Inglis and his estranged wife Sally, who recently moved back to Queensland, own investment properties across the state.

They have a renovated 1920s workers cottage in Sandgate, northwest of Brisbane, which cost $440,000 in 2014.

There is an apartment in Bargara, in the Bundaberg region, which cost $590,000 in 2008.

He sold his Altona Meadows home, southwest of Melbourne, for $423,000 in 2011 upon his move to Sydney. He had paid $375,500 in 2006, shortly after making his debut with the Storm.

The Kempsey-born NRL star signed with the Canberra Raiders at 15 but didn’t play a game. He moved to Brisbane and played for Melbourne Storm’s feeder club Norths Devils before being added to the Storm’s full-time playing roster in 2004.
