Hayes is sell­ing his Brighton house with price hopes of $2.25 mil­lion-plus. The 297-game club cham­pion called 68 Head St home dur­ing some of his time in Mel­bourne and has rented out the three-bed­room prop­erty in re­cent years.

Now a mid­field coach work­ing with the young tal­ent at Greater Western Syd­ney, it was time for Hayes to part ways with the circa-1920s pad, Kay & Bur­ton’s Michael Arm­strong said.

“It’s a good op­por­tu­nity in the cur­rent mar­ket — it’s a pop­u­lar style of prop­erty at the mo­ment so just the tim­ing was right for him,” Mr Arm­strong said.

“It’s in a very good po­si­tion be­cause it’s op­po­site El­stern­wick Park and that’s a very pop­u­lar spot there.

“There’s good scope for de­vel­op­ers ei­ther to do a town­house de­vel­op­ment, or for some­one to ren­o­vate the house or build a sin­gle house, so there are a few op­tions at­tached to this one.”

The 714sq m cor­ner block has frontage to Foote and Head streets and fea­tures an in­ground pool and cov­ered out­door en­ter­tain­ing area.

“It’s got some very good-sized rooms, that’s one of the great strengths of it,” Mr Arm­strong said. “It sits pretty well on the block. If ren­o­vat­ing you wouldn’t need to move around a lot of walls, you could work with the ex­ist­ing floor­plan quite well.”

Kay & Bur­ton will auc­tion the prop­erty on De­cem­ber 10 at 1pm.
