Newcastle Knights recruit Aidan Guerra has secured a Merewether home for his family just near his new club.

Set to co-captain the Knights with Mitch Pearce out of action, Guerra settled into the coastal district home last month with his family, wife Belinda and their two year old daughter Olive.

They've since been regularly spotted at the local beach.

The family secured a modernised 1930s Federation brick charmer, just five kilometres from the McDonald Jones Stadium.

Guerra paid $1,005,000 for the home, snapping it up after the agents sought $975,000 plus.

Set on 390 square metres, the single level family residence has three bedrooms and one bathroom.

The outside entertaining area overlooks the salt-water heated pool.

There's plenty of grass for the family dog Buddy too.

Belinda is the CEO of Scrunchieo that she recently launched, an online shop for a hair accessory.

The Cairns-born Guerra, a Queensland State of Origin representative, married Belinda late last year at The Secret Garden in Byron Bay

Former Roosters team mates Jake Friend, Anthony Minichiello and Boyd Cordner attended.

Guerra began his career at the Roosters having played his junior rugby league with Townsville Brothers.

After moving to the Melbourne Storm but not playing a first grade game, Guerra headed to Sydney.

Guerra has become quite the seasoned property investor.

His first buy was an apartment in Queens Park in 2015, round the corner from Roosters base camp - his club at the time.

The two bedroom apartment in a lowrise garden complex cost him $965,000 and was last up for rent at $600 a week in 2016.

More recently Guerra acquired an investment property in Byron Bay.

The back-rower paid $830,000 for the 1985-built four bedroom, two bathroom retreat which secured an $850 a week tenant, reflecting a nice 5.5% yield

He's set to assume the role alongside Jamie Buhrer.

The Knights have surprised everyone having won four of their opening seven games.

In the last three seasons the Knights have finished with the wooden spoon, only racking up 14 wins in that time.

Guerra headed to the Knights with fellow Roosters outcast Mitchell Pearce, who went north due to the arrival of Melbourne Storm legend Cooper Cronk.

They joined back up with fellow former Rooster Shaun Kenny-Dowall.
