How the other half live! Inside NRL star George Burgess and his wife Joanna’s luxury Sydney apartment… as it sells for $3million following their move to the UK
George and Joanna Burgess and their three children bid farewell to Australia last week, after the rugby league star signed a three-year deal with Wigan Warriors.
And no sooner had the family embarked on their new adventure to England, their luxurious apartment in Sydney’s Randwick was snapped up for a cool $3million.
The sensational home – which features panoramic beach views, a huge outdoor pool and tons of natural light – was listed on realestate.co.au, and unsurprisingly sold days after the family moved abroad.

The epic three-bedroom split-level apartment is in a brand new block of only eight apartments, and is located just a stones throw away from Coogee Beach.
It offers unbeatable sweeping views of Sydney’s skyline, visible from the aesthetically-pleasing pool area which is surrounded by wooden decking.
The 270 sqm of outdoor space is not wasted, boasting a cosy seating area which is perfect for hosting barbecues.
The light and airy downstairs dining area features sliding doors which open out onto the back garden, meaning it’s ideal for family functions and long summer nights.
