Australian cricket vice-captain David Warner and his wife, the iron woman, Candice Falzon have quickly listed their South Coogee home up for 2016 auction.

It is their home which cost $6.25 million in early 2014 shortly after the birth of their baby daughter Ivy Mae. 

The three level contemporary home listed by Bethwyn Richards at McGrath Estate Agents comes with 180 degree views across the Pacific Ocean towards Wedding Cake Island from all levels.

The home comes with bespoke cabinetry, American Oak and Travertine flooring. There's a state-of-the-art Calcutta marble kitchen, stone tiled swimming pool, sauna/steam room, and large outdoor BBQ entertaining space.

The March 2016 auction listing follows their recent Lurline Bay purchase when they bought an oceanfront knock-down for just under $4 million through McGrath agent Simon Exleton.

Offered with lapsed Tobias Architect, the couple has instead quickly commissioned architect Rolf Ockert to create their dream home. 

David "The Kaboom Kid" Warner, in unstoppable cricket form, loves his coastal property. "You can't go wrong on bricks and mortar," he told Daily Telegraph columnist Nick Tabakoff recently.

He was not alone in that thinking having outbid four contract holders to secure the 892sqm Mermaid Avenue.

In 2014 Warner secured $1.88 million when his renovated four-bedroom Jenner Street, Little Bay home was listed ahead of the purchase in South Coogee from the property developer and former Secret Millionaire star, Carly Crutchfield.

Warner had an investment property in Maroubra, which cost $562,000 in late 2009. The 1950s Maroubra Road sold in late 2014 at $650,000. His current portfolio includes Matraville investment apartments.

After breaking onto the international cricket scene in the 2008/09 season with a series of explosive batting performances taking his test runs past 4000, Warner is now a key opening batsman in the Australian Test team.

More than $7 million is being sought for the listing.
