The Davis Cup coach Lleyton Hewitt and wife Bec have spent $12.7 million on a newly built Georgian style Toorak residence.

It comes after the Hewitt's recent departure from Sydney with the recent $5 million sale of their home in Kenthurst which cost $3 million in 2006, just before he won the Queen's Club Championship in Wimbledon. Bec and Lleyton were both big celebrities in their own right before they combined their star power, after a whirlwind romance in 2005.

He was the then Wimbledon champion and she was a star of the enduring soapie, Home and Away.

There's no tennis court on the Hewitt's new Toorak abode set on one of Toorak's finest boulevards.

The new Georgian style residence was recently built by Peter Johnston's Royale Constructions.

Their Melbourne base, a $10 million penthouse atop the Yve building on St Kilda Road remains for sale on the Sotheby's International website.

The apartment offers 710 sqm internal space and 443 sqm outdoor living space over levels 19 and 20.

The couple are now spending most of their time in Melbourne, although he has a new endeavour, leading the elite Albany Tennis Academy at Windsor High School in The Bahamas where they first moved  when they purchased a $3.8 million property in 2009.  

"This new chapter of my career at the Albany Sports Academy allows me the opportunity to train, lead and grow rising stars from around the world in the game I love," Hewitt said on its launch earlier this month. Albany is a luxury resort community jointly owned by Tavistock Group, Tiger Woods and Ernie Els.
