THE first photos inside Shane Warne’s luxurious Brighton mansion have emerged.
As Warne prepares to bowl over buyers with a full-blown marketing campaign, images from inside his home have been revealed.
The four-bedroom Italianate mansion is fit for a king, but apparently not quite for the spin king, who is believed to be heading for a luxury manor house in the English countryside.
It’s also an entertainer’s paradise, with an aquarium, theatre, state-of-the-art Gaggenau appliance kitchen, a pool emblazoned with Warne’s playing number “23″ and a waterslide.
There also is a monster entertainment space at the rear that extends into the sprawling backyard.
Then there is the tennis court above the 10-car underground garage.
Yet-to-be-released marketing material for the house reveals it was built about 1885 and named “Kilkerran”.
It also reveals a bedroom that runs the “full depth of the first-floor”, comes with a “spa-quality ensuite” and a large dressing room – plus its own “private skygarden terrace with outdoor fireplace”.
The palatial property is chasing buyers with a $15 million budget – and so is the new owner of Warne’s former home, another Brighton mansion about 400m from his current abode.
Brighton real estate agency J.P. Dixon is selling both houses and Jonathan Dixon said they represented two of Melbourne’s most illustrious properties.
“With notable Victorian detail, including multiple marble fireplaces and lavish leadlights . . . this significant home is a masterpiece of modern family living, with a unique heritage as one of Brighton’s finest historical homes,” Mr Dixon said of Warne’s home.
