The Point Frederick apartment rented by the world’s fastest man Usain Bolt while trialing to become a footballer on the Central Coast has hit the market.

Bolt rented the luxury apartment, less than three kilometres from Mariners’ stadium, last year at around $1,800 a week.

To live like the champion will cost the buyer around $2.5 million or so.

He could see his home ground from the elevated rooftop penthouse, which was developed by the Klumper group.

The resort-style apartment last traded for a suburb record $1.9 million in 2017.

It features a number of open plan living zones which flow to multiple outdoor entertaining areas, lawns, gardens and courtyards. One on the outdoor areas has its own spa.

There are five bedrooms in total, including a grand master retreat with walk in robe and ensuite and a separate self-contained one bedroom guest suite, set on an elevated level with its own bathroom, kitchenette and living and dining area.

LJ Hooker Terrigal agents Tim Andrews and Tara Heley are marketing the apartment with a $2.5 million to $2.7 million guide.

The Point Frederick penthouse, dubbed The Sky House, was Bolt’s rental home for a couple of months.

Bolt first graced the Central Coast Stadium field with 15 minutes to go in a 6-1 victory over Central Coast Select.

His first goals for the club came over a month later, where he scored a brace in a 4-0 win against Macarthur South West United, who will be introduced into the A-League next year.

Bolt celebrated his goals with his iconic lightning bolt pose.

A professional contract failed to materialise, with the Jamaican believed to have not been willing to accept the $150,000 salary offered.

Following his retirement in 2017, the 32 year old former sprinter, one of the world’s most decorated athletes with eight Olympic gold medals to his name, took his legs to soccer.

After a handful of trials and training sessions in Europe, Bolt headed Down Under and was trailing and training with the Mariners in the hopes of earning a professional contract.

Bolt, who is the face of Optus, has been spending more time recently in the US and South Africa.
