South Sydney Rabbitohs star Sam Burgess and wife, Phoebe have been looking at upgrading homes along the eastern suburbs' coastline.

They have been quietly seeking buyers of their Maroubra mansion (pictured above) before committing to any purchase.

Their four bedroom French provincial inspired home with swimming pool and home theatre was bought for $3.8 million in early 2016, with their daughter Poppy following soon after.

The couple are expecting their second child, with Phoebe indicating this week on instragram she was at 20 weeks.

The home, on one of Lurline Bay's most exclusive streets, is only minutes from the coastal walkway and the popular Mahon ocean rock pool.

Maroubra became their home base after they decided to offload their apartment on the Bondi Beach dress circle.

Burgess paid $2,065,000 for the off the plan apartment in the Pacific Bondi block in 2012, and sold for $3 million earlier this year. 

It was bought by CBRE Asia Pacific executive chairman Rob Blain and wife Julianne, the Hong Kong-based couple snapping the apartment up pre-auction through Beau Champion, Burgess' former team mate turned NG Farah Real Estate agent.

There had been a $2.7 million guide.

The Burgess's have been looking along the coast as far as Vaucluse.

In 2016 Burgess offloaded his former Rushcutters Bay home, the first property he bought when he arrived on Sydney's shores.

He paid $1,075,000 in 2011 for the apartment when he was just an NRL new-comer.

Located in the Advanx building, the two bedroom, two bathroom apartment sold at $1.8 million.
