This week we spoke to one of the women who lives in the former residence of an Australian footballer who died of cancer in 2006.
We wanted to know how much her estate is worth and we spoke with a former resident of the property, who has since died.
Read more The property is known as the ‘Residence Inn’ in honour of the late footballer, Andrew Brookson.
The former resident, who did not want to be identified, said Brookson was “a beautiful man”.
“He was always there, he was a real gentleman,” she said.
“He used to walk down to the shop to buy his hair or something, but he always had a few spare change for me.”
She said Brookton was “the nicest guy”.
“I’ve seen him play a game with a girl once and he was like, ‘You should go to school, you should do something’,” she said, adding that Brookson would often help her buy her groceries.
The former property has been on the market since 2008 and it is believed the estate has an assessed value of $8 million.
Brookson died of leukemia aged 43.
A spokesperson for the Australian Football League said: “The AFL is aware of the matter and will be liaising with the Estate of Andrew Brookton to provide any information which is needed to assist in the appropriate course of action.”
The club said it had “no further comment” at this stage.
