The Elsternwick house former AFL player Ben Cousins rented while he lived in Melbourne, and played for the Tigers, is for sale.

The Edwardian terrace at 18 Willow Street (pictured left and bottom) carries a price guide of $1.55 million to $1.7 million.

Over two levels, the fully renovated weatherboard home includes three bedrooms, a study, two bathrooms and outdoor entertainment area.

The property is in the immediate vicinity of the Rippon Lea estate. It is also walking distance to the Glen Eira Road retail strip, Ripponlea train station and Caulfield Grammar.

The home was rented in 2009 for $850 per week. Cousins moved to Melbourne from Perth in 2008 to play for three years with Richmond before retiring. The athlete, who played 238 games over 12 years, was listed by sporting journalist Michael Sheahan as one of the fifty greatest AFL sportsmen of all time. Cousins won the league’s Brownlow Medal in 2005.

Gary Peer & Associates brokers Jeremy Rosens and David Micmacher will auction 18 Willow Street at 11:30am on October 28.

Last week, ABC radio host and journalist Richelle Hunt listed for sale a renovated red-brick Edwardian in nearby Balaclava.

We also reported that the ABC was selling its landmark Gordon Street studio with vacant possession – a deal expected to reap it between $45 million and $50 million.
