Legendary cricketer Shane Warne has finally sold his sprawling mansion in Brighton, Melbourne.

According to realestate.com, the 51-year-old offloaded the property after it was passed in at a private auction at $5.65million earlier this month.

The father-of-three had hoped to net between $5.8 million to $6.38million for the home, which he bought for $5.4million in 2018.

He dropped the price by a whopping $1million after originally asking for $6.8million to $7.4million in March.

Real estate agent Jonathan Dixon from JP Dixon has described the home as ‘the total package’.

He added of Warnie’s love of real estate: ‘Everyone thinks he just buys houses to turn them over, but that’s not correct. If you follow his lifestyle, it changes so often.’

The publication reports that the King of Spin is set to move into new apartment development, the Saint Moritz in St Kilda, which he is said to have purchased in 2018 for $5.4million.
