The sidelined Parramatta captain Kieran Foran has pocketed $1,705,000 from the sale of his Belrose home.

After his recent upgrade to Freshwater, his redundant Belrose home went to auction on Saturday afternoon. 

The Ray White listing agents had given an initial buyers' guide of $1.55 million.

Showing no sign of his recent shoulder surgery, Foran stood at the back of the crowd when his family home was offered at its onsite auction.

Bidding opened at $1.5 million, with four of the 10 registered parties putting in bids before it was sold to a family. 

The champion NRL player had bought the now vacated Belrose home four years ago for $1.06 million when he was playing for the Manly Sea Eagles.

Kieran has lived in Belrose from the age of 13, so many of the locals welcomed the league star back to the neighbourhood.

The four-bedroom, three bathroom cul de sac home was just a couple of streets from where he grew up.

He previously indicated that Belrose had appealed to him as it was so family-orientated with parks, schools and local shops.

Kieran and his partner, Rebecca Pape, now living at Freshwater, had two children while living at the home, the most recent being born earlier this year.

It was marketed as a contemporary family home with open plan leading to the rear heated swimming pool.

His newly bought home in the Sea Eagles heartland cost him $2.51 million.

Ray White Freshwater agents Graham Bennett and Bernard Hachenberg had the offering having helped him find his new home in Freshwater.

Graham Bennett told the auctioneer Vic Lorusso that it was on the market when the bidding got to $1.685 million. Bidding then rose in $1000 increments.

It was in April when the Parramatta Eels captain was given leave of absence to focus on some off-field issues.

In April Foran checked into a rehab clinic in Brisbane following a breakdown in his relationship with his long-term girlfriend Rebecca Pope and the stress of his eight-week old son being hospitalised with a bronchial infection.

He's since been briefly back on the paddock only to damage his shoulder in a game against Newcastle.

It has ruled him out for the remainder of the season.

He joined Parramatta from the Manly Sea Eagles at the start of the season on a two year deal, with an option for a further two season worth $4.8 million.

His Freshwater home, set on a large 1018 sqm block, is a full brick family home with five bedrooms, a home office and swimming pool. It last traded five decades ago.
