Warnie’s lat­est real es­tate deal

Herald Sun - Property - - FRONT PAGE -

SHANE Warne has found a buyer for his most re­cent Brighton home and is set to toast Christ­mas at his favourite man­sion just a few streets away. Warne’s French-in­spired prop­erty at 11 Ki­nane St changed hands for more than $5.3 mil­lion in a pri­vate deal re­cently af­ter be­ing listed a few weeks ago through JP Dixon.

The lat­est sale caps off a big few weeks in the real es­tate mar­ket for the cricket cham­pion, who is pas­sion­ate about Brighton’s high-end homes. He listed the Ki­nane St prop­erty,

Cam­den, af­ter splash­ing be­tween $14$16 mil­lion to buy back his lav­ish for­mer home Melville at 32-34 Mid­dle Cres, Brighton, which he owned with ex-wife Si­mone from 2001 to 2007.

CoreLogic records in­di­cate the pair paid $3.51 mil­lion for it and sold it for $8.75 mil­lion.

Now, it is un­der­stood Warne will move back into the six-bed­room 3014sq m es­tate, which fea­tures a ten­nis court and pool, about Christ­mas time.

JP Dixon di­rec­tor Jonathan Dixon sold both prop­er­ties and wished Warne all the best as he moved back to his old pad.

“It’s a lovely home so I’m happy for him,” he said.

Mr Dixon said the Ki­nane St prop­erty’s buy­ers were im­pressed by the up­dates Warne had made dur­ing his time there. “He’s pretty clever. He’s smartened it all up,” he said.

“It’s low-main­te­nance with good­sized rooms, it’s north-fac­ing and a stone’s throw to the beach.”

The house fea­tures a large main bed­room suite, self-clean­ing heated pool, putting green, in­ground tram­po­line and base­ment garage.

Records show the four-bed­room res­i­dence was last sold for $3.95 mil­lion in Fe­bru­ary 2014.

Mr Dixon said a lo­cal buyer had bought the prop­erty ahead of two other in­ter­ested par­ties.
