NRL star Nathan Cleary new home from dad and coach Ivan Cleary

NRL superstar Nathan Cleary has bought his childhood riverside home from a surprise seller – his father and his Penrith Panthers coach Ivan.

The close bond between the father-son NRL premiership winning duo has started a new chapter following the transfer of the 4-bedroom home on the Nepean River.

According to property records, the 892 sqm property traded hands via an internal family transfer for $1.7m.

Ivan Cleary bought the Western Sydney home in 2013 for $1.175m during his first stint as Penrith coach, when Nathan was still in his teens.

Cleary had spotted lending a hand during the Nepean floods of 2022, when Hawkesbury experienced its worst flooding conditions in 44 years with a water height of almost 14m.

The contemporary home sits in a relaxed, leafy setting with both indoor and outdoor entertaining areas, with floor to ceiling windows allowing in plenty of natural light.

The home is conveniently located close to the Panthers home ground of BlueBet Stadium and not far from where Nathan Cleary’s two-time premiership winning halves partner Jerome Luai bought his first home recently.

With five bedrooms, the two-storey trophy home has plenty of space for Luai, his partner, Bailey Paris Toleafoa, and their three children.

The master bedroom, on the second level, has a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite.

Its rear alfresco terrace overlooks the 645sq m gardens.

The 2010-built home sold just above its $1,495,000 to $1.55m guidance from Jim Aitken & Partners agents David Reeves and Andrew Lia.

It last traded for $1.2m in 2019.
