Rugby league commentator Mark 'Piggy' Riddell and wife Karlie have listed their Silverdale family home, as they seek out a sea change option.

They are headed to Shellharbour.

He won't be leaving the 2GB rugby league Continuous Call Team, but will face the longer commute.

From Silverdale, the Pyrmont HQ is around 70 kilometres west. Shellharbour is close to 100 kilometres. 

The home, newly constructed by G J Gardner, has five bedrooms and three bathrooms, but it comes with his fields of dreams. It's own football field paddock.

The listing advises it is set on one of the most sought after acre lots in the peak of the Greenhills Estate where house and land sales recently hit $1.91 million.

Elders Real Estate agents Damien Sexton and Aimee Mitchell have a June 2 auction. 

The foyer leads to open plan kitchen, family room with fireplace and dining rooms which overlook the outdoor entertaining area with swimming pool.

Riddell says the family have always talked about moving.

"We are making the sea change because we have always talked about it and have always loved the south coast for years," Riddell told me.

"With 3 young kids we felt if we didn’t do it now we never would! 

"So we said bugger it, let’s do it!

"We absolutely love our house we are selling, but just wanted that sea change and to stay out of Sydney.

Riddell has already eyed up his and wife Karlie's next purchase, which has recently gone under contract after having $1.1 million hopes through Ray White agent John Kay.

Riddell was a goal kicking hooker who spent most of his career at St George Illawarra and the Eels, before a brief stint in the English Super League and then ending his career at the Roosters.

He won the 2010 Super League Grand Final with Wigan Warriors in 2010.
