Sydney: Australian spin legend Shane Warne has sold his sprawling Melbourne home for around Aus$ 15 million (US$ 13.7 million), reports said Tuesday, amid speculation he is relocating to Britain.
Warne has been looking to sell the Victorian Italianate mansion, Kilkerran, for more than a year, the Sydney Morning Herald said, so he could be closer to UK-based model and actress partner Liz Hurley.
The five-bedroom Melbourne home had an asking price of Aus$ 15 million and was sold within the past two weeks, the reports said. Agent Jonathan Dixon confirmed the sale.
Warne bought the house for around Aus$ 8.55 million in 2009 as a family home with wife Simone and their three children before the couple split in 2010.
Warne and Hurley went through a rough patch in September with widespread reports that their affair was over, but the pair are now believed to be back together.
