Test cricket legend Shane Warne has listed his Brighton home because he's boomeranging back to a former Brighton home.

There's been recent speculation Shane Warne bought back his former Brighton mansion, Melville (above) for $14 million plus, with his McLuskys Lawyer's conveyancing paperwork now confirming his August 3 acquisition.

The Herald Sun reported the spin king's redundant Brighton home came with price hopes of $5 million to $6 million.

The house has been restored since his purchase in 2014.

The Herald Sun reported JP Dixon director Jonathan Dixon completed the secret resale to Warne, but would not comment on the details. The sale took place when Warne was in the UK on his cricket commentary commitments.

His agency has Warne’s Kinane Street home, Camden (below) for sale.

Melville, the former six bedroom luxury home of cricketing grea is a single-level Victorian mansion, that 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 recently sold listing was being handled by Dixon inconjunction with Harcourts Brighton agent Chris Bevan.
Warne with ex-wife Simone Callahan sold Melville for $8.8 million in 2007 to locals who on-sold to the recent 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.

It was one of homes which has made his name synonymous with luxury Brighton homes.

His price peak was when historic Kilkerran, which sits on a 2,202 square metre estate, fetched $10.85 million in 2013.

Warne had paid $8.55 million for the heritage listed home in 2009, which he shared with partner Simone Callaghan and their three children before the couple split in 2010.

Warne's current abode, Camden cost $3.95 million in 2014 when bought from the managing director of International Management Group, Martin Jolly, and his wife Martine who had paid $1.8 million in 2000 for the then new Mort Higgins-built home through Kay & Burton agent Ross Savas. 

Shane Warne tweeted tonight: ‏@ShaneWarne  13 minutes ago "Morning followers, just saw some more ridiculous & rubbish reporting online, the reports are laughable actually ! Have a great day / night."

While Warne did not identify the said report, it is likely another article published today that he had eyes for one of the current crop of Bachelor contestants, the 28-year-old blonde Kiki.

Kiki, a former Playboy model who’s now vying for Bachelor Richie Strahan’s affections, reportedly insists that she and the 46-year-old champion former cricketer are just friends.
