Offspring's grandmother star Linda Cropper has sold her Southern Highlands home after opting to move to Melbourne.

No doubt she will miss the gorgeous autumnal views from the kitchen that overlooks the gardens full with roses and fruit trees.

There was even a vegetable patch on the 1016 sqm Bundanoon parcel.

Cropper has just finished filming the seventh season of Network Ten drama, Offspring where she stars as Geraldine Proudman, an outrageous and outspoken family matriarch.

Geraldine is known for her mothering of her three children played by Kat Stewart, Richard Davies and Asher Keddie, who has returned to the show after two years out after having a baby.

The Network Ten drama/comedy series is filmed in Melbourne's inner-north around the suburb of Fitzroy.

It is centred on obstetrician Nina Proudman (Asher Keddie) and her family and friends as they navigate modern life.

Cropper secured $700,000 for the renovated the three bedroom home.

It was more than double the $315,000 paid in 2014.

Along with the new kitchen one of the most impressive additions was a covered entertaining deck that runs the length of the house.

It took a while to achieve as Belle Property Bowral agent Karen Cain had the 1970s, bagged brick home marketed for 100 plus days.

It was initially listed with $720,000 hopes.

Cropper seems to have now cut all her ties with her Sydney property portfolio.

She sold her one bedroom apartment in Camperdown in 2014 to fund her Southern Highlands move.

Cropper paid $590,000 for the apartment four years earlier, selling for $727,500.

She had previously been a Bondi Beach local for 15 years, seeing a 300 percent price growth on the one bedroom apartment.

It sold for $335,000 in 2008 having cost $109,000 in 1993.

Melbourne will be a stark change from her Southern Highlands home, noting in a recent interview with the Wyza Magazine for the elderly that after living in a very nice apartment she "just craved getting my hands dirty."

“The garden is my big thing...it’s very rewarding watching things grow."

In a career spanning over 30 years, Cropper has acted in a number of plays for the Sydney Theatre Company and starred in many popular TV series including Farscape, The Pacific, Water Rats and All Saints.

She played alongside Kate Hudson in the 2008 American film Fool's Gold, as well as alongside Cate Blanchett in the 2005 Aussie drama Little Fish.
