Gold Coast Titans Jarryd Hayne was a little too ambitious with the initial asking price of his newly renovated pink Paddington terrace.

He's reduced the investment property price tag to $2,975,000 after having $3.25 million hopes through OurEstate agents Adam Regan.

It still sits well above Paddington's median price of $1.85 million. 

Hayne paid $1,315,000 for the terrace in 2013 when it had only two bedrooms and one bathroom.

He commissioned architect Dickson Rothschild to turn it into a contemporary three bedder with three bathrooms and an attic installation.

The home is now unmissable from the street, with a bright pink door contrasting the dark grey facade.

There's a pink theme throughout the home too. The feature wall in the lounge and the bbq cupboard in the kitchen have clearly been styled by a designer.

The terrace has been furnished too ahead of its marketing - so doesn't necessarily show Hayne's living preferences who has never lived there.

The kitchen bench comes with The Broadsheet Sydney Cook Book next to the cooktop, though certainly not thumbed by Hayne.

The listing photos show an empty wine storage fridge too.

Hayne's property portfolio has always been in the trendy inner city suburbs, with well timed acquisitions.

The versatile footy star is expected to pour his sale into a property in the Gold Coast with his pregnant girlfriend.

He's already making a tidy profit on his Darlinghurst investment property, finding a tenant for $1,450 a week, $300 a week more than it was before its recent renovation.

Hayne had lived in St Peters before selling the family home for $995,000 to fund his NFL dream last year.

It was a strong profit on the home that cost him $527,500 in 2007, way back when he was a 19-year old rookie at the Eels.

Hayne, who played 176 games for Parramatta before heading overseas, also spent $388,750 on a Umina home for his mother in 2010.  

Hayne is the son of former Fijian and Rabbitohs’ star Manoa Thompson.

He grew up between Minto and Airds near Campbelltown where he lived in a housing commission residence and was raised by mother Jodie and grandmother Robin while his father chased a career overseas.
