Sydney Swans captain Kieren Jack sold his redundant Randwick home at weekend auction for $1,815,000.

Jack, who watched the auction while limbering up, was with partner, Charlotte Goodlet, then headed off to the SCG for the game against Port Adelaide.

He had paid $1.295 million for the 1920s Canberra Street home in 2012. There was bidding from two of the four registered parties after the $1.7 million opening bid.

After the auction Jack told one onlooker who congratulated him that it had been "stressful."

Set on 234 sqm, the dual level family home combines original Federation features and contemporary appointments.

It has two bedrooms, a recently renovated bathroom, modern kitchen and home office.

There's a low maintenance rear garden with barbecue area and treelined courtyard.

The home was sold by Australian Olympian turned estate agent Carl Wilson at Home Estate Agents. Carl represented Australia at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, competing in the swimming.

Jack has recently moved to his recently renovated Paddington home with Charlotte Goodlet.

He climbed onto the property ladder aged 22 just two years into his Sydney Swans career, buying a two bedroom Randwick apartment in 2009.

Set in a renovated block of nine units, Jack paid $570,000 for the apartment which was listed for rent at $560 a week in 2014. He retains the apartment on Mulwarree Avenue.

The Swans have are in line for another top eight finish, their 13th finals appearance in 14 years, having only missed the cut in 2009.
