The former six bedroom luxury home of cricketing great Shane Warne in Brighton, Melbourne, has been sold having been listed recently with expectations of around $15 million.

The home, 32 Middle Crescent Brighton, is a single-level Victorian mansion, features a fully tiled auto-clean pool and spa, mod-grass tennis court and four car garaging within its formally landscaped 3014sqm grounds. 

A bedroom wing has a poolside master domain and an entertaining zone set beyond a central water-feature courtyard.

The listing is being handled by Harcourts in Brighton agent Chris Bevan inconjunction with JP Dixon.

Warne with ex-wife Simone Callahan sold Melville for $8.8 million in 2007 to locals who on-sold to the current vendors for $10.1 million in 2009.

The celebrity couple had paid $3.6 million for Melville in 2000 reportedly spending that amount again on a major renovation and extension.

A latest mystery buyer is understood to have parted with $14 million plus according to the Herald Sun.

The house was first listed for sale in late 2014 through JP Dixon, Brighton, but was taken off the market late last year.
