Wallabies star Nick Phipps will be spending time over Australia's June Test series unpacking as he recovers from an ankle injury.

He's just settled on a home in Queens Park with his Macquarie banker partner, Ebony Bamford.

The couple paid $2,105,000 for the 1890s Victorian terrace in, according to the listing, is a tightly held parkside avenue.

Settlement came just days after it was announced that Phipps, a veteran of 52 caps, would miss the June Tests against Fiji, Scotland and Italy.

The scrum-half rolled his ankle in the Waratahs' loss to the Highlanders late last month with scans showing he has syndemosis which will likely result in a stint on the sidelines.

His new home is just a short stroll across Centennial Park to the Allianz stadium. 

It's also not too far from Wallabies boss Michael Cheika, who resides in a $4.8 million home in Randwick.

Phipps' Victorian terrace has three bedrooms - two of which come with a balcony - plus a study.

Offering an abundance of indoor and outdoor living, the dining and living spaces open to a rear garden, dining terrace and wraparound courtyard.

Alexander Phillips and Gavin Lewis at Phillips Pantzer Donnelly sold the home.

It's the couples first property purchase together.

Phipps still holds on to a two bedroom investment unit in Cremorne that cost $590,000 in 2012.

Phipps began his career at the Melbourne Rebels in 2010 where he was mentored by former Wallaby halfback Sam Cordingley.

He moved to Sydney to play for the Waratahs in 2014, the same year he played every Test for the Wallabies.
