FOR­MER St Kilda and Essendon player Neil Be­sanko is boot­ing his fam­ily home of more than two decades.

The 1971 Grand Fi­nal player and wife Becky have price hopes of $3-$3.3 mil­lion for the charm­ing five-bed­room house at 57 Guild­ford Rd, Sur­rey Hills, where they raised their children.

It’s set to go un­der the ham­mer at 11.30am to­day.

Mar­shall White agent Duane Wolowiec said the fam­ily was down­siz­ing after 23 years at the 1911 Wis­taria in a quiet, tree-lined street.

“They’ve up­dated it taste­fully through­out and it’s been im­mac­u­lately looked after. The way this has been main­tained is a real credit to the Be­sanko fam­ily,” he said.

The kitchen, bath­rooms and land­scap­ing are among the fea­tures that have been up­dated and lov­ingly main­tained.

Ceil­ing roses, orig­i­nal fire­places, coloured lead­light win­dows and a tim­ber fret­work arch give the home plenty of char­ac­ter.

Set on just over 1000sq m, the prop­erty also has two street frontages. “Street frontage to the rear is quite a rare op­por­tu­nity,” Mr Wolowiec said.
