Jarryd Hayne once owned a property portfolio worth $5 million – now guilty of sexual assault


Jarryd Hayne’s property portfolio was once worth more than $5 million including terraces and cottages in trendy Sydney suburbs.

But he will now spend his last weeks as a free man in a humble $388,750 pile on the Central Coast as he awaits he sentence for raping a young woman.

Hayne was at one stage earning north of $1 million a year, both with the Parramatta Eels and Gold Coast Titans, making him the highest paid player in the NRL.

He invested that salary into a properties in Sydney’s eastern suburbs and elsewhere, but as his career declined and legal bills added up he offloaded almost all of them.

The 33-year-old also owns two apartments in Parramatta and a house in Umina Beach where his mother Jodie lives in a granny flat out the back.

He built the 60sqm granny flat last year at a cost of $80,000.

This is the home he is believed to be staying in with his wife Amellia Bonnici while he awaits sentencing on May 6 while out on $50,000 bail.

His Darlinghurst home, which he attempted to rent out four different times, is described by real estate agents as a ‘chic inner city haven’ tucked away in a quiet, leafy enclave. 

He offloaded the three-bedroom, two-bathroom 1890s terrace in late 2019 for $2.2 million after buying it for $1.58 million in 2013.

The property has an open-plan layout, with retractable glass doors on all floors.

The entry level features a dining room space which leads into the kitchen, which then leads into a cosy lounge area.

There is also a sun-drenched balcony terrace which connects with the lounge. 

On the lower level, two of the three bedrooms share a single bathroom with access to a parking spot and landscaped courtyard. 

The top level plays host to a sizable master bedroom, which comes with its own en-suite bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and second laundry space. 

Hayne’s bought his Paddington home for an initial $1.31 million in 2013 before selling it for $2.97 million just five years later.

The sale price was down $275,000 on the initial asking price of $3.25 million.

What net profit the Gold Coast Titans star made after giving architect Dickson Rothchild the reigns on a complete overhaul is unclear.

This Paddington home was resold by Hayne in 2018 with a profit of over $1.6million

Originally a two-bedroom, one-bathroom pad, Dickson transformed the property on the inside and out, turning it into a three-bedroom, three-bathroom designer’s dream, adding a now iconic bright pink entry door.

The hot pink adornment makes the property clearly stand out against its modest grey facade.

The bright touches continue with modesty throughout the rest of the pad, carrying a subtle class that appears at odds with typical sportsperson stereotypes.

Both are a far cry from his current home on the NSW Central Coast, where he, wife Amelia and daughter Beliviah live.

The pair tied the knot in a secret ceremony at Pullman Magenta Shores resort not far from their Woy Woy home in January. 

Hayne acquired the humble property in 2010 and though it has an expansive six bedrooms even before the granny flat, it lacks luxury finishings.

‘This one is just right for a young family. The property consists of a rendered brick & tile house set on a private, level 696sqm block,’ the 2010 read.

‘There’s plenty of living area, with a large loungeroom at the front and a spacious family room at the rear.’
