The international lawn bowls couple Wayne Turley and Claire Duke have listed their family home in the Sutherland Shire.

The couple, who are both Commonwealth Games medalists, are off to Tweed Heads, the coastal mecca for lawn bowlers.

The move comes as the legendary Turley has secured a managerial role at the Tweed Heads Bowls Club which dates back to the early 1920s.

It also marks a return to the northern NSW for Turley who went to Mullumbimby High.

Extensively renovated, the contemporary four bedroom Miranda home now features a salt water pool in the backyard.

An entertaining terrace wraps around the 1970s home which cost $821,000 in 2011.

McGrath Sutherland Shire agent Katrina Wright has set a September 2 auction date.

Turley, who has been the bowls co-ordinator at Taren Point Bowls Club in recent years, won gold in the men's triples at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne.

He won a silver medal four years later at the 2010 Games in Delhi, the same year Duke won a silver medal in the triples.

"On the green, it's pretty fiery, I didn't realise how much sledging goes on," Turley recently noted on the NSW Queensland bowls rivalry.

The couple wed in 2013.

Miranda's median price sits at $1.4 million for four bedroom houses, according to CoreLogic.
