St Kilda legend Fraser Gehrig boots Beaumaris pad for $4m+

Dual Coleman Medal-winning cult legend St Kilda full-forward Fraser Gehrig has booted his Beaumaris pad for $4.4m.

The two-time All-Australian, famously nicknamed the ‘G-Train’, purchased the five-bedroom pad in 2012 for $1.6m, according to CoreLogic records — four years after his retirement in from the AFL.

Kay & Burton Bayside agent Tommy McIntosh declined to comment on the home’s vendor, but said the purchasers were a young family who had recently moved from London.

The dual Coleman Medallist is now the director of synthetic grass distributor company, Tuff Turf.

“We only had it up for a couple of weeks … they fell in love with Beaumaris and the property,” he said.

It is understood Gehrig completed extensive renovations in his time at the home, including cabinet installation, polishing the concrete floors, removing carpet and adding textured walls throughout.

He also updated the bathrooms and added a butler’s pantry to the kitchen.

“It has very high ceilings, great lighting and an epic lounge (room) which looks over the pool,” Mr McIntosh said.

He noted the new owners particularly liked the underground heated floors, the four-car garage and the outdoor entertaining area.

The kitchen has since been updated by Gehrig, among a number of other renovations he completed.

Gehrig played 260 games for both St Kilda and the West Coast Eagles across his 11 years in the AFL.

He is now the director of synthetic grass distributor company, Tuff Turf, based in Heatherton in Melbourne’s southeast, and delighted fans with an ambassador appearance at a St Kilda-Geelong game at Etihad Stadium last year.

The off-market sale was one of Victoria’s biggest sales in the last week of July, sold by Mr McIntosh and fellow Kay & Burton Bayside agent Eleisha Doherty.

The G-Train first retired from the game in 2007, but changed his mind and was redrafted at the start of the ‘08 season.

But his return was short-lived, with the Saints star retiring indefinitely after just another five games and nine goals, following an ongoing battle with arthritis in his hand.
