Longtime Sydney Swan player Jarrad McVeigh has traded the beach for the harbour.

Having quietly sold in Bondi, McVeigh, and his fashionista wife Clementine and their two daughters, are off to Rose Bay.

Last month's $2.15 million purchase (pictured above) hints that McVeigh may stay at the AFL club, although the rumours circulate that the veteran midfielder could be finishing his career elsewhere.

McVeigh made his debut for the Swans in 2004 having been drafted in 2002.

Their new purchase was marketed as a designer family haven in a lush garden oasis.

The 1930's home is separated into living and accomodation wings.

There's a master suite with dressing room and ensuite and a versatile loft retreat, advertised as a possible fourth bedroom.

The open plan rear entertainer's space opening to a rear landscaped garden on its 235 square metre parcel.

Century 21 Feller Taylor Freund Rose Bay selling agents Danny Taylor and Jeff Freund advised there's space to extend the upper level.

The home last traded for $1.32 million in 2009 and became a $1,700 a week rental late in 2016.

The veteran player's first property purchase was a two bedroom apartment in Paddington.

He then upgraded to Bondi Beach in 2013, a year after captaining the side to the Grand Final victory over Hawthorn. 

The $1,155,000, two bedroom abode became too small after the family became four late last year. They sold it off-market for $2 million.

The new home base less than a kilometre away from the home of superstar team mate Buddy Franklin and his model wife Jesinta.

The Franklin's are busy installing a rear lap pool in the family home that cost them $2.35 million in 2014.

The Swans are in danger of missing out on the finals for the first time during John Longmire's tenure at the Moore Park club.
