Sydney Roosters young gun Joseph Manu has bought his first home in the rival club’s Rabbitoh's heartland.

The 22-year-old winger has spent $1.15 million on a Botany apartment. It’s set on the first level of the recently completed Magnolia building of Tailor’s Walk, an urban village complex developed by Frasers Property.

Marketed by Phillips Pantzer Donnelley agents Tristan Oddi and Debbie Donnelley as having house-size proportions, the 160sq m apartment has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. The kitchen comes with a butler’s pantry. Wall-to-wall glass opens to a full-size alfresco entertainers’ terrace.

Manu (pictured), who joined the Roosters in 2016 and has extended his contract to the end of the 2020 season, joins teammate Latrell Mitchell as a first-home buyer.

The Origin shoo-in spent $1.45 million on a 2015-built, four- bedroom home in Chifley, just before the Roosters’ 2018 grand final victory.

Fellow Rooster Victor Radley spent $1.2 million on a Bondi apartment, having previously scoped out an apartment in Double Bay.

Last year Roosters emerging star Ryan Matterson spent $915,000 on a new apartment in Botany.

The 23 year old utility bought in the Frasers Property developed The Martin, surrounded by gardens in the Tailors Walk community.

The unit has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a study area and an alfresco balcony with CBD views. 

Martin Property Zetland agents David Bettini and Peter Turner had a guide of $880,000 to $960,000.

It first sold off the plan in 2015 at $915,000 to a Chinese buyer.

Roosters star fullback James Tedesco, who has built an impressive property portfolio, has quietly bought his first eastern suburbs property. Tedesco had been renting in Bondi Beach before settling in Rose Bay, where he paid $1.75 million for a two-bedroom, two-level updated apartment with 115sq m of landscaped terraces.

Veteran backrower Mitch Aubusson also bought in the east, spending $1.45 million on a two-bedroom unit in North Bondi, and promptly found a tenant at $995 a week, reflecting a 3.5 per cent yield.
