Collingwood champion Dane Swan has listed the first home he bought when the club “kicked” him out of living with his mates as a young draftee.
The 2011 Brownlow Medal winner and 2010 AFL premiership star told Property Confidential his entry into the property market came after an ultimatum from the Magpies.

The living area has an open fireplace.


“I had to buy because Collingwood kicked me out of living with my friends,” he said.

“They didn’t want me living with my friends anymore and said ‘you need to find a new place to live, or you won’t be here’. So I moved out and I bought that.”

Swan swooped on the two-bedroom pad at 74 Coronation St, Kingsville, with help from his parents, with the location handy to Collingwood’s former VFL-aligned team in Williamstown.

His dad, Bill Swan who also played at Williamstown and won two J.J. Liston trophies as the VFA’s best and fairest, has made cosmetic updates to the property over the years.

And it was where Swan eventually returned home after celebrations at the height of his career, including around Collingwood’s 2010 grand final win.

“I’ve had many a sleep in there after some pretty wild celebrations,” he said.

“There have certainly been a lot of good memories in there for me but it’s been 20 years so it’s time to let it go and let someone else create their own memories in there.”

The 258-gamer has retained the property as an investment since moving out.

Hunter French agent Saade Ghazi, another J.J. Liston Trophy winner with Williamstown, has the listing with colleague Michael Tsigeridis, and said it was in a good spot for families and first-home buyers.

“It’s in a popular Kingsville area; you’ve got all the cafes in Yarraville up the road,” Mr Ghazi said.

The property is scheduled for auction on November 5 with an $800,000-$850,000 guide.
