Despite enjoying life in Hollywood, Australian actor Ryan Kwanten is keeping an eye on the Sydney property market, securing his second Northern Beaches investment apartment.

The former Home and Away actor, who starred in the HBO series True Blood, has secured a $1 million apartment in Balgowlah.

He is now seeking a tenant at $790 a week, which would reflect a 4% yield.

The Sydney-born heartthrob bought his first Sydney property elsewhere on the northern beaches nearly 20 years ago.

He spent $162,000 on a studio apartment in Manly in 1999 when he was 21 years old, two years after he was cast to play lifeguard Vinnie Patterson on Home and Away.

He had previously worked on A Country Practice and sitcom Hey Dad!

Kwanten, who with partner, Ashley Sisino, doesn't often get back to Australia much, or is low key when he does, is currently in the cast of the film Supercon, a Comic-Con heist comedy that features John Malkovich.

It's set for release later this year.

LJ Hooker Balgowlah agent Angus White had the ground floor apartment marketed as a 'quiet listing'.

Set in a block of eight, it has two bedrooms, one bathroom, a near new kitchen and a wrap around balcony.

Balgowlah's two bedroom unit median is $880,000 according to CoreLogic. CoreLogic has the median rent for a two bedroom apartment in the suburb at $600 a week.

His earlier apartment he bought some 18 years ago. It's a studio apartment in Manly that cost $162,000 in 1999.

He moved to the US in 2002 and was cast in short-lived drama series Summerland, after Kwanten spent five years playing Patterson, whose character had married Ada Nicademou and had a child.

His big break in the US came in 2008 when he was cast as one of the lead characters in the hit TV series True Blood that ran for seven seasons.

Based on the Charlaine Harris novel series The Southern Vampire Mysteries, the dark fantasy horror saw Kwanten play ladies man Jason Stackhouse.

The show was HBO's most watched series since The Sopranos.

Since the series concluded in 2014, Kwanten featured in the 2015 crime thriller Kidnapping Freddy Heineken along side Oscar-nominated movie veteran Anthony Hopkins and Aussie star Sam Worthington.

The film is based on the real-life abduction of the Dutch beer tycoon in 1983.
