Former VFL footballer Craig Stewart has sold his South Yarra mansion for $8.2 million to adman Scott Whybin and his wife, Cathy Hains.

It had been listed mid-year with a price tag of $8 million-plus through Andrew Baines, Nicole Gleeson and Michael Gibson, of Kay & Burton. 

It was sold in August with its recent settlement paperwork only recently revealing the buyer as Whybin, the founder of the advertising agency Whybin\TBWA and Hains, who runs the thoroughbred breeding operation, Burnewang North.

Stewart, who played 150 games with Collingwood and Richmond between 1978 to 1986, had paid around $2.2 million in 1997 with wife, Melissa.

The Avoca Street house has five bedrooms, a pool and a conservatory. There's also a self-contained apartment and a cellar. The gardens regularly were part of the Open Garden Scheme.
