The Gold Coast AFL superstar Gary Ablett has yet to sell his luxury Ashmore waterfront which was up for sale through the entire football season.

Its listing sparked rumours he was likely to leave the Suns. The house started the year with $2.2 million hopes - and is now priced at $2,045,000 through Danny Stanley from Kollosche Prestige Agents.

Ablett paid $1.8 million for the home upon his arrival at the Gold Coast in 2011 having left boyhood club Geelong.

A busy season in Melbourne for the stars of the AFL on the property fronts continues with veteran GWS defender Heath Shaw listing his former Kew East home.

The former Collingwood star paid $750,000 in 2008. Marshall White is expecting between $1.4 million and $1.5 million. 

Western Bulldogs star midfielder Marcus Bontempelli spent $2.2 million on a nearby Kew cottage. 

North Melbourne captain Jack Ziebell sold in Brunswick West mid-season for $1.268 million to relocate to a $1.275 million house in Maribyrnong.

Recent retirees of the game bought up including Lions forward Jonathan Brown, who spent $4 million in Camberwell, after his move from Brisbane. 

Serial renovator, retired ruckman Darren Jolly, and wife, Dea stars of two series of Channel 9 show, The Block, bought a charming $1.8 million unrenovated Sorrento cottage on Melbourne's pricey Mornington Peninsula coastal playground.
