Australian cricket legend Glenn McGrath is selling an investment apartment at Wentworth Point, in Sydney's riverfront western suburb.

The right-arm seamer, who in recent years has become a carbon farmer, paid $545,000 for the 110 square metre, two bedroom unit in 2009, just before he retired from all forms of the game.

The two bedroom apartment in the Palermo complex was just two years old when McGrath bought it direct from the developers Payce Properties.

He attempted a sale at $750,000 mid last year, but then pulled it from the market.

Cobden & Hayson Drummoyne agents Shane Howley and Frank Colacicco are now marketing the unit, which has been a rental in recent years. 

They say this time round the apartment is vacant and presents very well.

McGrath donned the baggy green for the first time in 1993 having grown up on a sheep and wheat farm near Dubbo, where he still owns a three bedroom home.

He stuck to his roots and still owns a couple of hundred sheep and cattle in Bourke near the Gundabooka National Park.

The Cronulla local is Australia's most successful bowler and still has the highest number of Test wickets by a fast bowler, despite retiring from Test cricket 10 years ago.

His last test game was the fifth Ashes Test against England in Sydney in 2007 where he took a wicket with the last ball of his Test career.

The same year he retired from all forms of international cricket after Australia won the 2007 Cricket World Cup before spending the 2008 Indian Premier League season with Dehli.
