Almost one month after listing it on the property market, AFL great Tim Watson has closed a huge deal on his marvellous Albert Park pad.

The 16 Dundas Place home sold for an undisclosed amount that was greater than the $3.5million Tim and his wife, Susie, were hoping for, reports realestate.com.au.

The Melbourne property was sold at a virtual auction, as confirmed by Marshall White Port Phillip partner Sarah Wood.
