Bec and Lleyton Hewitt have snappily sold listed their little-used Kenthurst acreage.

This was no five setter, it was snapped up after just 13 days on the market - that's twice the speed of the current red hot 26 day Sydney sale period.

It was listed because they spend much more of their time these days in Melbourne. It sold to a Sydney family. 

The home was hoped to sell for close to $5 million through Guardian Realty agent Gavin Weekley, who said buyer interest was very strong.

When the Kenthurst home last sold in 2006 for $3 million it bettered the record for a two-hectare property in the north-west Sydney suburb by $350,000.

But the Hewitts' offering remains a single-level, six-bedroom home has been overtaken by far grander homes that have fetched as much as $6 million. 

The marketing for the Hills district home say it has a free-flowing layout.

"Splashes of vibrant colour are blended with custom timber finishes and hardwood floors, set against a verdant backdrop of manicured gardens and lush lawn," it advises.

The former world number one has also recently relisted his Melbourne penthouse at $10 million, which is proving tougher to sell.

Hewitt, who had previously based the family in the Bahamas, has increasingly stayed at this St Kilda Road pad in the Yve tower on St Kilda Road.

It is currently listed for sale through Sotheby's agent Phillip French.

The Kenthurst sale is the last of their Sydney holdings as Bec and Lleyton offloaded their three-storey Palm Beach retreat at $4.63 million in 2014.

The Cox Architecture house had cost $4.4 million in 2005.

The Palm Beach purchase was just two weeks before tying the knot. 

Bec and Lleyton were both big celebrities before their whirlwind romance. He was the then Wimbledon champion and she was a star of the enduring Channel 7 soapie Home and Away.

The couple are now parents to three kids, Mia, Cruz and Ava.

Hewitt sold his former Adelaide home for $2,185,600 after six long years on the market, for considerably less than the $3.2 million paid for it in 2003.

In 2005, Hewitt was the youngest on the BRW Young Rich list with a net worth of $30 million.
