The retired cricketer Shane Warne is officially seeking to secure another profitable property flip in bayside Melbourne at pre-Easter auction.

The legendary spinner has listed his Brighton home with a guide of $6.8 million to $7.4 million.

It would see the King of Spin turn a tidy profit, albeit not quite the $8 million he was rumoured to be seeking last year.

Warne paid $5.4 million for the contemporary French Provincial-style double storey home just less than two years ago.

It was bought from private investigator Anthony Thompson, who had bought it from Essendon champion Matthew Lloyd and his wife, Lisa Marie.

Warne has updated the five bedroom home with a nightclub style bar.

There’s Miele kitchen appliances and Calacatta benchtops, plus a basement room for a gym or children’s retreat.

There’s an auto-clean pool and spa.

There's been no formal reason behind the listing through JP Dixon Brighton agents Jonathan Dixon and Chris O'Farrell.

It is going to be put to April 4 auction.

He's rumoured to have bought into the Saint Moritz apartment complex at St Kilda, which is still a way off completion.

Warne has regularly traded up and down on the Brighton property scene, and made a handsome profit trading homes.

It started in 1996, when a 27 year old Warne, who was already four years in to his Test career, first bought in the affluent suburb.

He spent $902,000 1920s home which was sold for $2.61 million after renovating four years later when he upgraded to the trophy home, Melville, which he's actually owned twice.
