Bec and Lleyton Hewitt have listed their little-used Kenthurst acreage for sale. 

They seem set to spend much more of their time these days in Melbourne.

The 100 square home with will no doubt sell for close to $5 million through Guardian Realty agent Gavin Weekley.

When the Kenthurst home sold in 2006 for $3 million it bettered the record for a two-hectare property by $350,000.

But the Hewitts offering remains a single-level, six-bedroom home with resort-style pool that has been overtaken by grander homes that have fetched as much as $6 million. There was a $3.9 million sale next door earlier this year.

The marketing say it has a free-flowing layout spanning more than 100 squares.

"Splashes of vibrant colour are blended with custom timber finishes and hardwood floors, set against a verdant backdrop of manicured gardens and lush lawn," it advises.

The former world number one recently relisted his Melbourne penthouse at $10 million with offers due this week.

Hewitt, who has been based in the Bahamas with his family, had rarely used the St Kilda Road pad until this year.

It is on the 19th floor of Yve tower.

It has been listed by Sotheby’s International Realty, fully furnished.

Hewitt bought the apartments on level 19 and 20 for $8.325 million in 2004 at 578 St Kilda Road.

He then took around four years creating the 710 square metre internal space with six bedrooms and six bathrooms. There is also 443 square metres external space, Sotheby agent Phillip French said,

Bec and Lleyton Hewitt offloaded their three-storey Palm Beach retreat at $4.63 million in 2014.

The St Kilda Road house cost $4.4 million in 2005.

Th property purchase was just two weeks before tying the knot. 

Bec and Lleyton were both big celebrities in their own right before they combined their star power, kicking off a whirlwind romance in 2005.

He was the then Wimbledon champion and she was a star of the enduring soapie, Home and Away.

The couple, now parents to three kids, Mia, Cruz and Ava, bought a home in Nassau in 2009 for $3.8 million.

Hewitt sold his former Adelaide home for $2,185,600 after six years on the market, for much less than the $3.2 million he paid for it in 2003.

In 2005 Hewitt was the youngest on the BRW Young Rich list with a net worth of $30 million.

The latest listing caps off a busy time for Bec too as her parents' $2.5 million Oakfield property - where Bec grew up - was sold earlier this year after three decades ownership.
