But keen interest from five bidders saw auctioneer Damien Cooley knock it down to the last bidding entrant, a young first-home buyer couple who bid up from their $2.485 million initial offer.
The Robinsons intend to trade up in the eastern suburbs, looking to move closer to the beach.
The Waverley home was bought for $1,815,000 in 2014, a year after Robinson took the top job at the club.
Bordering Clovelly, the two-level, three-bedroom home on 210sqm has two living areas separated by a new kitchen.
Robinson met Sandra, from the French village of Montrabe, while coaching with Toulouse and Catalans. They returned to Australia in 2013.
