Retired cricket great Brett Lee lists in Seaforth

Staff reporterOctober 31, 20160 min read

Having bought around the corner in Clontarf, the former Aussie fast bowler Brett Lee and wife Lana have listed their flash Seaforth home.

Recently renovated, every level of the three storey home overlooks Middle Harbour, from the opulent master suite to the gas heated infinity pool and spa.

The couple paid $4.25 million for the four bedroom waterfront in 2013. They bought well as price had gone backwards from its 2007 trade when it went for $4,285,000.

For the fitness fanatic, there's a 20 sqm gym, a nordic-style sauna and a spacious rumpus area opening to a sun-drenched balcony.

Clarke and Humel agents Cherie Clarke and Michael Humel have scheduled a November 19 auction date.

When Lee bought the home with deep water frontage, it came with a full marina facility with a registered 20 year lease.

The family are moving from waterfront to beachfront.

Their new abode on an elevated 1138 sqm has five bedrooms, five bathrooms and also enjoys an infinity pool.

It offers a number of harbourside terrace, an outdoor kitchen and a separate poolside guest studio.

Lee, who grew up in Wollongong, ended his Test career with 310 wickets in 76 tests, the fourth highest Australian total behind Shane Warne, Glenn McGrath and Dennis Lillee.

He announced his retirement from all forms of international cricket in 2012, 13 years after playing his first test against India in 1999.

Lee played for the Sydney Sixers until 2015 when he joined Channel Nine's cricket coverage. 

He parted company with Channel Nine last week and won't feature in a new-look line-up headed by former Test captain Michael Clarke.

Lee married Lana Anderson in 2014 and they have an 11 month old daughter Helena. There's son Preston from his first marriage to Elizabeth Kemp.

He is a popular figure in India and featured in the film UnIndian opposite Tannishtha Chatterjee that was released last year.

His connections in India haven't always been rosy.

He was previously an ambassador to the Pearls Group, which unbeknownst to him were allegedly ripping off billions of rupee from as many as 50 million property investors.
