The expatriate former NRL bad boy Todd Carney has listed the first Sydney apartment he bought.

His redundant Wentworth Point unit was bought in the days when when he was a young Canberra Raider, paying $395,000 for the one bedroom apartment in 2007.

Set in the Lipari building, opposite the Pulse health club and just footsteps to the lively Mediterranean-style piazza, the 86 square metre sixth floor apartment has been listed through Cobden & Hayson Drummoyne agent Frank Colacicco at $480,000.

A year earlier the Goulburn-born Carney had cemented himself as an emerging half back star scoring 12 tries in 18 games in his breakout season.

He was on his way to being the 2010 Dally M medallist.

Now Carney is playing in the UK, having recently signed a short-term contract with Hull Kingston Rovers.

He played late last month under coach Tim Sheens.

His skills were praised post match, albeit not long on the field given he's only just flown to the UK.

Carney, who will wear the number 40 shirt during his time in east Hull, is seen as a key figure for the upcoming qualifiers campaign which begins this month as Rovers fight for Super League survival.

Carney first made the switch to Super League in 2015 when penning a two-year deal with Catalans Dragons, then the Salford Red Devils for the 2017 campaign. He is set to play against the Devils in the next round.

He was briefly back in Australia earlier this year to sign a deal with Queensland Cup side, Northern Pride, with a view to a return to the NRL.

The 32 year old retains an impressive portfolio including a Coogee two bedroom apartment that cost $880,000 near the beach in 2010.

Carney's portfolio includes a $607,000 one bedroom unit in Waverley.

He also bought an investment off the plan at Sans Souci paying $460,000 for the one bedder.
