Following his move to the English Super League last month, former Cronulla Sharks star Ben Barba has listed his Sutherland Shire investment property for sale.

Barba's decision to sell the Caringbah investment apartment comes after he recently leased his own home, not far away at Caringbah South for $1,000 a week.

The flying fullback will get a nice earn from the 84 sqm apartment.

His playing future is now in the UK, after Barba was told by French club Toulan, who he signed a lucrative two and a half year deal with in January, that he was no longer needed by the club. 

There is a price guidance of $620,000 to $660,000 for the two bedroom apartment with updated kitchen and bathroom.

The fullback had paid $425,000 in 2012 when he was at the Bulldogs.

It was available at $420 a week in March.

The marketing suggested the tenants are happy to stay on for the new buyer.

Century 21 Cronulla David Wolfhart has the listing which faces competition from the renovated top floor unit of the block that has $649,950 hopes.

Barba's decision to sell the apartment comes after he recently leased his former two bedroom Caringbah home.

He paid $1.18 million for the home in 2014 following his brief stint at the Brisbane Broncos.

Barba was recently told by French club Toulan, who he signed a lucrative two and a half year deal with in January, that he was no longer needed by the club. 

There was brief speculation he was set to return to Australia after inking a one year deal for the 2017 NRL season at the Sharks.

His fall from grace came last October shortly after he starred in Cronulla's maiden Grand Final win over Melbourne Storm.

The 2012 Dally M Medal winner failed a drugs test after the celebrations and was hit with a 12-match ban in the NRL.

Barba was spotted at the Super League Magic Weekend - an annual event in the English Super League in which an entire round of matches is played over a weekend at one stadium.

He signed for St Helens, previously led by Bulldogs captain James Graham. Newly-appointed coach Justin Holbrook worked with Barba at the Bulldogs when he was the assistant coach.

St Helens are seeking to get Barba's drugs ban reduced, however the 12 match ban will still stand should he return to the NRL.
