After two false starts, the Olympic fast man Matt Shirvington and wife, Jessica have relisted their Mosman home for a third marketing campaign.

The updated 1897 Federation home dropped off online listing sites earlier this year, but is back this time through McGrath's Michael Coombs.

Coombs has set an early spring September 10 auction date. The price guidance is $4.3 million to $4.6 million.

It had previously been with Belle Property Mosman which failed to sell the home after over 100 days on market.

The couple tried to sell the home back in 2012, however failed after spending 65 days on the market.

Set on a large 822 sqm corner block, the single level home has four bedrooms, a grand formal dining room and a private marble finished outdoor terrace. 

Shirvo, known as the second fastest Australian sprinter of all time, paid $2.5 million for the home in 2008, the year he retired as a professional athlete.

Since life off the track, Shirvington has appeared on Dancing with the Stars, and is currently a sports presenter for Sky News Australia and host of Fox Sports NRL coverage.

He and wife, author Jessica are childhood sweethearts, having been together since they were 17. She is the author of the popular Violet Eden Chapters series.

They have two daughters, Sienna and Winter.

Mosman is one of the slowest selling private treaty markets, according to CoreLogic, with their time on market currently at 70 days. The Sydney average is 34 days.
