Geelong premiership player Tom Hawkins has sold his restored 1920s investment property at Geelong West.

Belafonte, the three bedroom 146 Hope Street house had rear open-plan living and dining, deck and landscaped yard.

It sold through Lee Botsios and Brock Grainger of Fletchers, who while quoting $460,000 to $480,000, secured a $452,000 sale price.

Property Observer understands that Tom Hawkins paid around $410,000 in 2009.

After the sale, the property became available earlier this year for lease at $410 a week asking rental through Release Property Management Geelong, reflecting a 4.7% rental yield.

Hawkins' last asking rental, when it came available in late 2012, was $370 a week. 

RP Data puts the suburb's median house price at a record $442,500.

The house was marketed as conserving its many vintage interior features, while adding contemporary polished concrete floors to make a house with well-proportioned rooms and indoor and outdoor living/entertaining spaces.
