Former NRL Cronulla forward Ben Ross and his wife, Renai Sola, have listed their impressive Cronulla penthouse apartment.

The couple moved into the three bedroom, three bathroom apartment shortly after Ben proposed to Renai in 2008, while he was still at the Sharks.

The family, now with two daughters, are tipped to stay in the shire.

The three bedroom apartment, 200 metres from the heart of Cronulla, is a top floor fully renovated entertainers' pad.

It comes with two large balconies, private lift and ocean front views a dream.

Ben said that they love the fact there are stairs with direct access to the beach which they overlook from both balconies.

Greg Gilbert agents Alex Pitsis and Nathan Ogilvie have set an August 4 auction.

Originally from Queensland, Ross headed south to start his NRL career at St George Illawarra, before heading to Penrith.

He joined Cronulla in 2006 but only featured in 45 games over a three year period due to numerous injuries and suspensions.

Ross moved to South Sydney Rabbitohs for a year in 2010, then Ross returned to Cronulla for the 2012-13 seasons.

He always wanted to retire on his own terms, and with his neck held together with screws and plates, did so at the end of the 2013 season.

He played a remarkable 64 NRL matches after doctors declared he was just a millimetre away from life in a wheelchair.

Ross was offered a contract from then Super League club London Broncos but declined.

He is now the national welfare manager of Men of League which aims to provide assistance and support to players, coaches, referees, officials and administrators from all levels of the game.

Ross is also community ambassador for the Sharks and the NRL.

He recently revealed on social media that he secured his coaching accreditation as a senior club coach.

"Pumped to finally get my Coaching Accreditation! Now to find a team to coach... Any suggestions?" he popped onto his Instagram page.

The median unit price in Cronulla is peaking at $740,000, according to CoreLogic RP Data.
