Speculation that Shane Warne seeks to flip his Brighton home

Cricketer Shane Warne is selling a Brighton home he only bought last March, The Herald Sun has reported.

It is speculated Warne is seeking about $8 million.

The Newbay Crescent contemporary double-storey home with a home theatre, pool and spa, was bought from private investigator Anthony Thompson for $5.4 million before its modernisation.

It was previously owned by the Essendon champion Matthew Lloyd, for nine years until 2015.

Warne is a frequent player on Brighton's property scene, and he's made a handsome profit playing the game.

He's owned the trophy home Melville twice.

He first bought it for $3.6 million in 2000, spending around the same amount on renovations and selling for $8.8 million in 2007.

He then bought the property back in 2016, paying $14.2 million, only to sell it 20 months later, with no extras, for $18,888,888.

That was the biggest play in Warne's long history of flipping in Brighton
