Australian spin legend Shane Warne has sold his sprawling Melbourne home for around Aus $15 million (US $13.7 million), reports said on Tuesday, amid speculation he is relocating to Britain.

Warne has been looking to sell the Victorian Italianate mansion, Kilkerran, for more than a year, the Sydney Morning Herald said, so he could be closer to UK-based model and actress partner Liz Hurley.

The trophy five-bedroom Melbourne home had an asking price of Aus $15 million and sold within the past two weeks, the reports said. Agent Jonathan Dixon confirmed the sale but not the price.

Warne bought the house for around Aus $8.55 million in 2009 as a family home with wife Simone and their three children before the couple split in 2010.

Warne and Hurley went through a rough patch in September with widespread reports that their affair was over, but the pair are now believed to be back together.
