Lance Franklin, the former Hawk turned Sydney Swans' grand finalist, has listed his contemporary Brighton East house for October 26 auction.

The 55 Hodder Street offering has $1.6 million to $1.7 million price guidance.

After renting briefing elsewhere in Brighton, Franklin bought the house on its 678 square metre block in late 2010 for $1.635 million through hockingstuart.

It had also sold at $1.45 million in 2006 on its completion.

It is a four-bedroom, two bathroom home with a pool.

He is not yet known to have bought any Sydney property. The Brighton property with pool room has been rented out since late 2013.

Before his Brighton purchase he had spent $860,000 in Melbourne's eastern suburbs just weeks before the 2008 premiership, aged 21 years after renting in Box Hill. 

Despite reports he's turning his back on Melbourne property, Title Tattle understands Buddy retains this first property, a Donvale Palladian-inspired executive home which is home of his parents. 

There have been two recent sales on Hodder Street. 66 Hodder sold at $1.45 million and 66A at an undisclosed price., also in August this year.

AFL footballers in the bayside precinct include Chris Judd from Carlton. It was 2010 when Judd and his then model fiancee Rebecca Twigley bought their 671 square metre Brighton property for $2.125 million through Kay and Burton agent Justin Follett. They rebuilt and moved in this year.

St Kilda's Nick Riewoldt and wife, Catherine spent $4.1 million in February in Brighton for their 1,100 square metre block.
