Yet another Aussie cricketer is selling up in the Sutherland Shire - but its appears Nathan Lyon won't be straying.

The Test veteran currently in Sri Lanka where he has taken nine wickets in Australia's dismal first two Tests, has listed his renovated Oyster Bay waterfront.

Lyon and wife Meg paid $1.4 million for the home in 2014 and renovated throughout.

The family home on 1220 sqm has four bedrooms and two bathrooms spread over its two levels.

A lower level rumpus room flows onto the outdoor alfresco entertaining area which is accompanied by a landscaped yard and large fire pit.

McGrath Sutherland Shire agents Matthew Johnston and Jill Yankos have set a price guide of between $1.95 million and $2.05 million for its September 3 auction.

Lyon recently expressed his love for spending time in the garden, which overlooks the water.

Lyon has two young daughters, Harper, 2, and Lily, 1, and says he loves being a dad.

"I just love being a dad and that great cuddle you get when you come home."

"I am a bit of a softie around the girls actually."

The shire has always been a hotspot for the lads with the bat and ball, with numerous comings and goings over the years.

Ricky Ponting packed his bags for Brighton in bayside Melbourne, selling at Burraneer Bay for $4.275 million in late 2013.

Retired captain Michael Clarke sold his Lilli Pilli home for $2.55 million in 2014, whilst Shane Watson let go of his Caringbah South waterfront for $3.925 million the same year securing a $9 million Bronte home.

Nearby neighbour Glenn McGrath thought about leaving Gunnamatta Bay, but never quite got to buy in Sydney's eastern suburbs. 

Lyon, who holds the record for most Test wickets taken by an Australian off-spinner, has been a fixture in the Australia Test team since his debut in 2011.

The 28 year old from Young in the South West Slopes region of NSW, made an immediate impact on debut, taking a wicket with his first ever Test ball.

He went on to take five for 34 on and became only the 15th Australian bowler to take five wickets in their debut innings.

Lyons is currently the 15th best bowler according to the ICC Rankings.

He remains an integral part of the ODI team after making his debut in 2012 and is also a part of the Sydney Sixers BBL team.

Lyon bought a Vaucluse apartment last year for $1.1 million, which he quickly leased for $800 a week, showing a yield of 3.78 percent.
