Written by The ReReport

A FOOTY legend’s Brighton house has been kicked onto the market.
The home of late North Melbourne star and coach Keith “Macca” McKenzie has been listed by his son following the champ’s death in January this year.
McKenzie played 130 games for the Kangaroos from 1944 to 1951, coached the club from 1966 to 1970 and later spent 35 years at Carlton as assistant coach and general manager.

He and wife Joan, who died five years ago, bought the three-bedroom townhouse at 1/708 Hampton St in 1991.
Their real estate agent son, Paul McKenzie from JP Dixon in Brighton, is selling the property on behalf of his late parents.
Mr McKenzie said he was very emotional about selling the home, which has a price guide of $1.45-$1.595 million.
“My parents were married for 70 years, and born and bred in Brighton,” he said.
“We’re looking for a loving family to buy this property.”

The single-level dwelling has been owned by the McKenzie family since 1991.

Mr McKenzie said the townhouse was “ahead of its time” when his mum and dad, a former Kangaroos best and fairest winner, bought it.
“It’s a beautiful, single-level home in a quiet spot, with multiple living areas and tonnes of natural light. It’s perfect for young couples or downsizers,” he said.
“It’s on the corner of one of Brighton’s most sought-after streets, Plantation Ave, which is very family-friendly.”

McKenzie’s real estate agent son is selling the family home.

CoreLogic data shows the couple purchased it for $300,000 in 1991.
The semi-detached townhouse is one of three family-sized homes on the block.
It is scheduled to go under the hammer on December 1.
