A Brighton mansion formerly owned by the cricket Shane Warne has been almost completed bowled by its new owner. 

The cricket legend sold "his favourite house" on Middle Crescent for $18,888,888 million in 2018 to its current owner.  

The bluestone's modern extension and pool have been torn down over the past weeks. 

Warne and his ex-wife Simone Callahan bought the property for more than $3.5 million in 2001, before offloading it for $8.75 million in 2007.

Warne then bought it back for $14 million in 2016, before selling it to the current owner in an off-market deal. 

The owner planned to restore the property to its "formal Victorian glory", according to the director of building group Davies Henderson, David Henderson. 

Warne had previously renovated the property with amenities including games room, home theatre, tennis court and gym.

A savvy property investor, Warne has bought, renovated and sold at least six Brighton residences over the past two decades.
