Legendary Manly Sea Eagles hardman Anthony ‘Choc’ Watmough and his wife, the former model Elle McLeod, have snappily sold their five-bedroom Dee Why home.

The couple paid $1.73 ­million for the home in 2012, shortly after they got engaged and then wed a year later.

Watmough and McLeod have extensively renovated the three- level home which features a lounge and dining space with a stack stone gas fireplace which opens to a balcony with views.

The views extend over Dee Why Lagoon, Long Reef Headland and out to the ocean.

The third level master retreat comprises an ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and its own terrace. There is 410 square metres of space including balconies.

The couple bought the headland home with Elle’s late mum Leona when the extended family numbered six.

Their dream is to now find and renovate a beach cottage which would be home for the couple and their three year old daughter, Jagger, who ent­ered the world seven weeks early, weighing 2.2 kilograms.

Upstate agents Tulo Sila and Eddy Kalnian were marketing the home with a June 1 auction, with 22 groups through the first open.

The Dee Why market has seen a dip in its median prices after realestate.com.au showed the four-bedroom median peak at $1.93 million in 2017.

But the median was just $920,000 in 2012 when the Watmoughs bought on Undercliffe Street.

The couple hoped to get $2.7 million.

Last year the Watmoughs offloaded their nearby investment apartment for $750,000, it having been a $650 a week rental.

Watmough had paid $580,000 in 2013 for the two bedroom unit atop a 1970s block.

Watmough played 278 games for the Sea Eagles, pulling on the NSW Blues jersey 14 times and the national strip on 16 occasions.

He is now behind the Sydney CBD restaurant Cubby’s Kitchen.
