NRL star Anthony Watmough sells his stunning Sydney beach cottage for $2.5million and makes a tidy $300,000 profit in less than a year
Former NRL Manly Sea Eagles star Anthony Watmough and his wife Elle have just sold their stunning Northern Beaches cottage for a tidy profit.
The couple purchased the Sydney property just under a year ago for $1.84million and have spent a year transforming the home with a $300,000 renovation before selling for an estimated $2.5million, The Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday.
The renovation, which included a rear extension and adding a deck, transformed the modest 1950’s home and helped the couple walk away with a good $300,000 plus nest egg.

Tulio Sila of Upstate Real Estate told the Daily Telegraph the couple is moving to a nearby home in Fairlight.
‘It’s not a house that needs renovating but Elle will probably put her stamp on it anyway,’ he said.
‘They weren’t looking for another property to flip, this one is more a long-term family home for them.’
Anthony and Elle tied the knot in 2013 and share daughter Jagger, four.
The retired sportsman also shares daughter Claudia and son Jake with ex-girlfriend Lauren Newcombe.
