It's been a busy few of weeks for the South Sydney Rabbitoh star Angus Crichton.

Just before putting in a star performance on debut in New South Wales' Origin win, the young back-rower bought his first home.

It was secured off-market.

Settlement paperwork now shows the 1930s red brick Rose Bay semi cost $2.18 million.

The three bedroom semi, that last traded for $1.4 million in 2011, popped up amid the recent sales successes of newly appointed Ray White Double Bay associate director, Warren Ginsberg.

Crichton is set to initially be a rentvestor as he's put it up for lease at $1,350 a week, reflecting a 3.2 percent rental yield.

The single storey home with high ceilings, polished timber floorboards and a sunroom, sits in landscaped gardens on 290 sqm.

Crichton's new purchase in Roosters territory comes as no surprise as he has deep associations with Sydney's east.

He was born in Young in NSW's south west slopes, but he went to school at Scots in Bellevue Hill.

His father Charlie runs the popular Double Bay butchery 1888 Certified.

Crichton, who rents at Bondi Beach, has been in scintillating form for the Bunnies who sit second on the ladder after winning the last seven straight.

His desire to play the game was well documented in the off-season, after he underwent an operation to remove one of his fingers after ongoing injury troubles.

Crichton has committed to a contract with the Roosters from the 2019 season worth $2.7 million, however the Daily Telegraph's Phil Rothfield said that he was having second thoughts.

"I can tell you that Crichton has got very caught up with the excitement at the Rabbitohs,’’ Rothfield told Fox Sports’ NRL 360 earlier this month.

"They’re a really tight team and he is having second thoughts about going to the Roosters."

Commenting on the rumours, Crichton said he'd "pour cold water on that."

Angus initially looked set for rugby union when he was younger.
