Sharks star James Maloney lists in Pelican as club switch rumours persist

Cronulla Sharks star James Maloney is selling his former home near Lake Macquarie, as speculation persists on an end of season switch to the Penrith Panthers.

Maloney lived in the home at Pelican for a few years after paying $295,000 in 2007 before he became a professional NRL footballer.

The stand-out five-eighth bought the home when he was 21 and playing for Parramatta Eels reserve grade.

Maloney failed to break into the first team, prompting his move to Melbourne where he kicked off at the Melbourne Storm.

Then, there was his two year stint in New Zealand with the Warriors.

It has been a consistent rental through the year, first renting at $330 a week, and since increasing to $350 a week.

The two bedroom home, set two streets back from the crystal clear Swansea Channel waters, comes with a covered rear deck that looks over the level back yard with a self-contained cabin.

Andrew McGrath at First National Real Estate Blacksmiths is seeking offers between $490,000 and $538,000.

Maloney won the 2016 Premiership in his first season at the Sharks and also owns another house nearby which cost $440,000.

Maloney's Instagram suggests he will be busy in the off-season.

He's taken on a treehouse project at his coastal eastern suburbs abode that he shares with his three children and wife Jessica.

Fellow Cronulla Shark Chris Heighington is also selling an investment property.

Heighington is now considering an offer on his Upper North Shore investment property.

The Waitara apartment cost the Shark veteran $300,000 in 2005 when it was new.

Set in the North Tower of the Eden Apartments, the 76 square metre courtyard apartment has one bedroom and was offered leased at $410 a week.

It had a $504,000 listing price.

Heighington is yet to decide on his NRL future having spent the last four years with The Sharks.

The 34 year old won his first Premiership with the Wests Tigers in 2005.
