Kicking goals! Retired AFL player Dale Thomas offloads his stunning four bedroom property in Melbourne for more than $2.5 million

Dale Thomas has sold his stunning four bedroom home in the Melbourne suburb of Glen Iris for more than $2.5million.

The retired AFL star, who shares the home with his partner Natasha Bongiorno, listed his property on the market last year with a price guide of $2.5million to $2.75million.

But the 33-year-old managed to make himself a tidy profit after selling for more than $2.5million, Domain reported on Friday.

The season six runner up of I’m a Celebrity first purchased the home back in 2009 for $859,000.

He transformed the home’s outdate brick exterior to a modern and sleek façade that featured elements of steel and timber, as well as a front deck.

Inside the home opens to a spacious combined living and dining space, alongside a kitchen.

Meanwhile, the spacious master bedroom features an ensuite and roomy walk-in-wardrobe.

Last year Dale told Domain that he was ‘really proud’ of the work he had put into renovating his ‘trophy home.’

‘I’m really proud of it, it’s very much a showcase of the hard work I put into my footy.’

‘There’s a lot of luxury features about this house, it was my way of saying, “I’ve worked bloody hard and I’m going to build something special and enjoy it”,’ he said.
