Essendon AFL veteran Dustin Fletcher secured the $1,555,000 weekend auction sale of his long-time Moonee Ponds abode.

The modernised five-bedroom Victorian home on a 570 square metre block had initial $1.1 million plus price guidance ahead of the auction. This was increased from $1.2 million to $1.32 million guidance.

The realas website, which claims it can estimate prices to within five percent, fell short too having a $1.36 million prediction.

Melbourne recorded a 77.7% initial clearance rate on Saturday, the fourth consecutive weekend clearance rate above 77%, according to APM.

The Bent Street home had been listed through agents David Vaughan of Nelson Alexander.

It has been home to Dustin and his wife, Suzann, since paying around $415,000 in 1998, five years after his schoolboy debut for the team.

The two-time premiership star has played 393 games, and is almost certain to become the third VFL-AFL player to reach 400 games when he plays on in 2015.
