Essendon Football Club legend Dustin Fletcher is preparing to handball his Keilor East family home.

Considered one of the best defenders in AFL history, Fletcher’s 400-game career with the club started in 1993 with a premiership winning season.

He notched a second premiership and collected the W.R. Crichton Medal for the club’s best and fairest in 2000, and was twice named in the All-Australian team.

The family bought the three-bedroom residence at 91A Wyong Rd in 2017 and it has been home to Fletcher’s sons, including Mason Fletcher who is now training with the Bombers.

The courtyard-style backyard is made private with tall fences.

They are planning to upsize in the same area after the sale.

The property offers low-maintenance living, multiple living spaces, a study, kitchen with Smeg appliances, stone benchtops and glass splashbacks.

One of the home’s multiple living areas.

Handy possessions include hardwood floors, plantation shutters, floor-to-ceiling tiles in its two bathrooms, as well as an alarm and video intercom system.

A private courtyard-style garden with a sheltered deck and lawn add to the appeal.

The home’s kitchen is modern and light filled.

In the suburb’s popular back pocket, the home should appeal to downsizers, professional couples and small families looking to be close to shops, cafes, schools and parks, according to Nelson Alexander’s David Vaughan.

A $780,000-$850,000 asking price was on the mark for the suburb where plenty of buyers were looking, Mr Vaughan said.

The open-plan rear living area at the home provides plenty of space for a family.

“Numbers have been strong lately, especially through the Keilor East corridor,” he said.

“It presents like a display home.

“The home is absolutely immaculate, the floorplan it offers is versatile, and being over one level will make it quite attractive to downsizers.”
