Warne family list Portsea home

The Portsea holding (outlined) spreads just shy of an acre.

The family of late cricketer Shane Warne has listed the Portsea property the sportsman intended to replace with an entertainment-focused, resort-themed holiday home.

The liveable bluestone home contains four bedrooms.

On 4023 square metres covering 65-67 Duffy Street and 89 Campbells, where it has gated access, the property is expected to collect between $5.5-$6 million following a private sale campaign.

Mr Warne paid $3.6m in August, 2020, and was in the process of pushing through the new build with the Shire of Mornington Peninsula when he died in Thailand last March, aged 52.

With a bowling alley, games room, gym, jet ski garage, library, observation deck and wine cellar, the end value of the proposed dwelling was put at over $5m.

JP Dixon marketing agents Jonathan Dixon and Suzie Farrell are representing the Warne siblings (story continues below).

A studio and tennis court at 89 Campbells Road could be subdivided and sold.

The agents are making the redevelopment plans available to prospective purchaser.

Alternatively, the existing bluestone home, with four bedrooms and two living areas – overlooking a pool and garden – could be retained.

Shane Warne owned Brighton’s Melville twice.

Any incoming buyer also has the option to subdivide and sell down the Duffy St parcel, presently a clay tennis court.

Mr Warne was famously Brighton based – buying and selling a series of homes over the past 15 years including the landmark Melville, twice – a holding owned nowadays by Equis founder David Russell and his wife, Elena.
