Ex-Carlton footballer Stephen Silvagni and wife, television personality, Jo, have listed their Balwyn North family home.

Near Jacka Street Reserve, the triple storey, five bedroom plus study Hosken Street mansion is seeking $8-$8.8 million – a result which would smash the suburb record set last April when 9 Chelmsford Street traded for $7.6m.

Whereas that dwelling – a near new Georgian – covers a 1012 sqm site, the Silvagni pile, with a home developed in 2004 also in that style, stretches 1878 sqm.

It includes a tennis court too.

Marshall White’s Marcus Chiminello and Mandy Zhu are representing the Silvagnis which paid $440,000 for the holding in 1998 – three years before Steve retired from a 312-game AFL career.

The sportsman, son of VFL player Sergio, is also a member of the AFL’s Hall of Fame and Team of the Century (story continues below).

The Balwyn North mansion contains five bedrooms and a study.

Ms Silvagni meanwhile, forged a media career after replacing Alyce Platt in Sale of the Century in 1991 – aged just 20.

Then known as Jo Bailey, she was previously also a model.

The pair married in 1996 and have three sons, one, Jack, born the year later who has been an AFL player since 2016.

Last month, we reported The Connault in neighbouring Balwyn traded for $14.85m – a watermark for that suburb – following a marketing campaign targeting aged care providers and prestige home buyers.
