The prolific goal scorer retired from professional soccer last year after a career that included being a foundation member of the Roar in the mid-2000s.

The home followed an open plan for the living zones.

It was put to auction in November but a sale was not finalised until February this year.

The house was built in 1955 and sits on a 405sq m block with views off the deck of the city skyline.

It was listed as being “perfectly placed to enjoy all of the area’s attractions with Coorparoo Square, parklands, cafes and schools all easily accessible on foot”.

McKay bought the home in 2010 for $793,500 and the home has been rented out fetching $700 a week three years ago.

McKay’s career included a stint with the K-League in Korea, the Chinese Super League and the Scottish Premier League, as well as 59 appearances with the Socceroos over a decade.
