The South Sydney coach Wayne Bennett and his fiance Dale Cage have sold their Brisbane near riverside home.

It sold within 18 days of its listing through Ray White for $2.12 million to a local family who were downsizing.

The property at Yeronga attracted some interest from Sydney buyers.

They paid $1,975,000 in late 2016 when Bennett just wrapped up his second season in his second stint at the Brisbane Broncos.

Set on the high side of the dress circle Brisbane Corso, the home spans three levels.

It has four bedrooms, a home office, media room and a heated pool. 

The home built by local builders Grayhaus shortly before Bennett and Cage bought it.

The couple could now move to buy in Sydney as they have been renting in Sydney's coastal eastern suburbs.

He's never been that into Sydney property, preferring to keep his expansive portfolio up north.

Bennett still hangs on to a $1.96 million Brisbane city apartment and investments in Moffat Beach and Gladfield.

Bennett's Brisbane home sits just one street back from the Brisbane River.

Bennett met Cage during his two year stint as head coach at Newcastle Knights when Cage was working as a secretary at a performance physiotherapy clinic.

He coached the Broncos for 21 consecutive seasons from their first season in 1988, during which he resided much of the time at a home at Mount Ommaney.

His NSW coaching stints have been in the Illawarra and Newcastle districts, neither of which appeared to have ignited any passion for property.

Cage said the couple looked all over Brisbane when we were looking to buy "from Ascot and Hamilton and we both fell in love with this house together".

“It’s a warm, inviting and modern home and it’s made for entertaining,” Cage said.

“It’s a wonderful street we live in, there’s good company all around. It’s a great house too that is very low maintenance.

“As soon as we walked in we knew it was right for us, and it would suit a big family as it’s got a heated pool and four big bedrooms, two of which are ensuited.”
