The UK’s Daily Mail is reporting that Shane Warne has listed his c1885 Brighton mansion ‘Kilkerran’ at 6 William Street for sale. Warne purchased the property in December 2009 for $7.55m. He then acquired next-door neigbhour #8 $1m in 2009, only to demolish the home to make way for a subterranean garage, a pool branded with his cricket number (23) and the migration of his tennis court about 10 metres to the north.These additions would likely justify an 8-digit price tag.
However, seeing that no listing has yet appeared on the open market and that even Jonathan Chancellor at Property Observer can not confirm such a listing, we’re only left to speculate as to if, when, and for what price the home will list.
Another rumour circling around Kilkerran? Its architect: some believe it was Charles Webb, one of Boom Time Melbourne’s most prolific mansion architect.
