RECENTLY retired Socceroos captain Mile Jedinak is selling his long-held Sydney investment apartment on the upper north shore.

The St Ives unit almost book-ended his Socceroos career as he bought the apartment from the ­developer in 2009, shortly after making his international debut.

He captained the Socceroos in the 2014 and 2018 World Cups, representing Australia 79 times.

Jedinak, who is now based in the English Midlands with wife Natalie and their three boys, paid $570,000 for the unit.

He currently plays for championship club Aston Villa.

The St Ives offering, set in the Meriton-built Loralea Gardens complex, has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is 90sqm of ­internal space.

It has a north-facing lush tree-lined outlook from its 13sqm balcony that runs the full width of the Memorial Ave unit.

The complex with landscaped gardens features a fitness centre with lap pool, spa and sauna. Meriton Group project sales manager Jason Miao has the listing with $850,000 to $900,000 price guidance. It is currently tenanted at $650 a week.

St Ives apartments have soared 47 per cent in price in the past five years, according to CoreLogic, with 8 per cent annual compound growth. The median price for two-bedroom units is $895,000, with a 3.7 per cent rental yield.

Jedinak began his career at Sydney United, with his performances earning him a trial, leading to a contract, with the Central Coast Mariners. The apartment was secured just after Jedinak left the Mariners to join Turkish club Gençlerbirligi.

Two years later the Camperdown-born midfielder moved to the English Premier League where he spent five seasons at London club Crystal Palace.

He made his debut for the Socceroos in 2008 and captained the Socceroo's in the 2014 and 2018 World Cup finals. 

He became a fan favourite at Crystal Palace when he scored a late winner in the final game of the season to secure a playoff place.

He captained the side to a playoff final win, taking them to the Premier League, and winning the player of the year in the process.
