Collingwood premiership player Jarryd Blair puts Sandringham property project on the market
Pies premiership player Jarryd Blair is selling the Sandringham nest he built after hanging up his AFL boots.
The ex-Collingwood small forward, who helped his team to 2010 premiership glory, has put 2/231 Bluff Rd on the market with $1.35-$1.45 million price hopes.
The four-bedroom townhouse sits on a block the footballer bought for $850,000 in May 2014.

He recently knocked down the block’s old brick house, where he’d been living, to build two new stylish family-sized homes.
Blair played 143 games for Collingwood, kicking 110 goals after making his debut in 2010.
His delisting from the Pies last year was filmed for documentary From The Inside Out, which aired this month on the ABC.
He has played this year with VFL side Port Melbourne, which takes on Richmond in a preliminary final the same weekend the house hits the market.
Blair has listed the property with Buxton Sandringham agent Matthew Gray, who was previously an AFL player manager to Andrew Krakouer, Nathan Lovett-Murray and Warwick Capper.
Mr Gray said it was Blair’s first property project.
“He’s done really well to set himself up for the future and with a keen interest in the property market there could be more to come,” Mr Gray said.
“This one is at the rear of the block and it has just been finished in the last couple of weeks.”
Modern features fill the brand new townhouse, including luxe bathrooms and a contemporary kitchen. A private courtyard is also found next to the open-plan living room.
Blair, 29, comes from a family of footballers, which includes his grandfather, John O’Mahony, who played 112 games with Hawthorn in the 1950s. His uncle John Blair also played with the South Melbourne Football Club.
The townhouse is scheduled for auction on October 12.
