Wasim Akram Puts Brighton Australia Home on the Market for Auction
Wasim Akram! Cricket Legend’s Residence Up for Auction Brighton, Australia – Cricket enthusiasts and real estate aficionados are in for a treat as legendary Pakistani cricketer Wasim Akram, widely known as the Sultan of Swing, prepares to bowl over the Brighton housing market.
The cricket maestro, the only Pakistani player in Wisden’s all-time Test World XI, has decided to auction his residence at 31 Whyte St this weekend.
A Home with Memories
While currently engaged in commentary roles abroad and in Australia, he and his wife Shaniera have owned the 31 Whyte St home for nine years, residing in it initially and then renting it out in the past 12 months.
“While there will always be a little part of me that’s attached to this fantastic home, we’re really happy to still be able to live in Brighton and enjoy everything this great area has to offer,” Akram commented.
Mrs. Akram added that the Whyte St home’s location is ideal for the new owners to relish everything Brighton has to offer, including beautiful beaches, a welcoming community, and fantastic schools.
Spread over three levels, the three-bedroom house features a basement cellar, a double garage, an open-plan living zone that leads to a rear deck on the ground floor, and bedrooms upstairs. The main bedroom boasts a private balcony and an ensuite.
Listed for $1.73m-$1.9m, the property is represented by Marshall White Brighton director Jason Swift, who expressed excitement about the unique opportunity for prospective buyers.
“It’s not every day one of the greatest bowlers of all time puts a house up for sale – so the lucky new owner will not just be buying a slice of paradise, but also a slice of cricketing history,”
Mr. Swift said. Auction Details The auction for the 31 Whyte St home is scheduled for 2 pm on November 25, promising a chance for buyers to secure not only a beautiful and modern family home but also a part of cricketing legacy.
