Bec and Lleyton Hewitt list Melbourne mansion after big investment
Tennis star Lleyton Hewitt and Home & Away actress Bec have listed their luxurious Melbourne mansion just weeks after scooping up a Gold Coast home.
The pair’s Toorak home was listed for sale with a price guide of $15-16 million after they reportedly dropped $4.305 million on a coastal home in Burleigh Heads.
Their five-bedroom family estate became the country’s most viewed home according to realestate.com.au, having racked up over 12,400 views in one week.
It boasts multiple living and dining areas, a huge main bedroom, indoor and outdoor kitchens, and a basement with a 12-seat cinema, wine cellar, gym, and a six-car garage.
Outside, the property also includes a pool and a Rebound Ace tennis court.
The home is open to expressions of interest and the listing is being managed by Jellis Craig Stonnington agent Phillip French. Mr French first sold the property to the Hewitts for $12.7 million while it was under construction in 2016.
He said the family had loved the home’s “very private position” and enjoyed its “great entertaining spaces”.
The listing comes as the couple are expected to settle on their new Gold Coast home by November 15.
The four-bedroom home sits less than 100-metres away from Burleigh’s surf beach, and boasts a tropical outdoor entertaining area with a sunken fireplace, pool, and barbecue kitchen.
Conal Martin, the agent managing the sale, declined to comment on the buyer’s identity but said the family had visited since the sale and loved it.
“I can say they do love the Gold Coast,” he said.
“They’re a lovely family and they are welcomed in the area.”
Despite purchasing a Queensland home, Bec and Llayton are rumoured to be moving to Sydney with their three children, Mia, 15, Cruz, 12, and Ava, 10.
