Shane Warne sells Melbourne mansion for USD 13.7 mln
Melbourne: Australian spin legend Shane Warne has sold his sprawling Melbourne home for around AUD 15 million (USD 13.7 million), reports said on 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 trophy five-bedroom Melbourne home had an asking price of AUD 15 million and sold within the past two weeks, the reports said. Agent Jonathan Dixon confirmed the sale but not the price.
Warne bought the house for around AUD 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.
