The Portsea home of late Collingwood football and TV legend Lou Richards has been listed for sale, a year after his death. 

It was the retreat for more than three decades for Lou and his late wife Edna Richards who paid $35,000 in 1981.

The 2400 sqm holding, with five-bedroom house and tennis court, at 43 Macgregor Ave, has been listed by his daughters.

RT Edgar Flinders agent Ilze Moran expects $3.5 million to $3.8 million at its November 25 auction.

Richards captained the Magpie's to a Premiership in 1953. There's a bronze statue outside the club's HQ in his honour.

Following his retirement he became a prominent sports journalist.
