Former Hawks captain Sam Mitchell and wife Lyndall have moved quickly to secure a property in Perth after the midfielder's trade to the West Coast Eagles.

They've paid $2.15 million for a 2007 home in Cottesloe, just $50,000 more than it sold for in 2013, highlighting even further Perth's continued property market weakness.

The four bedroom, three bathroom home on 491 sqm features two living spaces, a family room and a parents retreat with private balcony.

A swimming pool and an alfresco dining area are set in low-maintenance gardens.

The Mitchell's have not written off Hawthorn completely however. They've only leased their four bedroom family home in Melbourne's inner east.

A tenant quickly snapped up the property for $1,800 a week late last year.

They bought the 1940s home for $1.82 million in 2009 and have since restored the home.

The family home set in 841 square metres of lush gardens has a home office and a gas heated swimming pool. It was once a feature on Better Homes and Gardens.

Mitchell looks set to see out his playing career in Perth with assistant coaching set to follow.
