Sydney Sixers and New South Wales captain Moises Henriques has spent $3,125,000 in the coastal eastern suburbs.

He's staying in Clovelly, but upgrading from his townhouse.

Joining other big time cricketers who have marked on serious off-season renovations, Henriques has secured an original 1930s home.

Ray White Randwick Bondi Junction selling agent Michael Levy sold the freestanding home (pictured above) saying it was offered for the first time in almost 100 years.

Title records show the blacksmith Craig family had paid £1,460 for the property in 1923.

Henriques, who has also played in the Indian Premier League T20 tournament, had time to get to work right away following his recent acquisition given the premature close of this year's Big Bash series.

He'll no doubt be seeking guidance from fellow cricketing renovators, Australian cricket captain Steve Smith and T20 captain David Warner, although he doesn't get to hang out on tour with them as much as he'd like.

Henriques, who has played for Australia in all forms of the game, starred for Australia in India last year but has failed to nail down a permanent T20 spot due to a run of injuries.

Henriques has been a mainstay in the Sixers team since the beginning of the T20 tournament in 2011.

The Portuguese born all-rounder has been living in a townhouse nearby with his long-term partner and now fiancee, former KIIS FM newsreader Krista Thomas, who he proposed to during a romantic holiday at Lake Wakatipu in New Zealand last October.

Thomas made headlines in 2015 after she was axed from Kyle and Jackie O breakfast show because she was too opinionated a woman for the station.

They've got a pet dog, affectionally known as 'King Mort.' Thomas loves living near the beaches, and says she will never get over how beautiful Gordons Bay is.

Henriques paid $1.17 million for the three bedroom Clovelly home in 2010.
