Franklin, who retired from AFL in 2023 after playing for both the Hawthorn Football Club and Sydney Swans, is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time.
The couple snapped up their sprawling Gold Coast property known as Villa Casa after just six days on the market in 2022, smashing the previous sales record in the emerging Gold Coast hinterland suburb.
