Michael Clarke has started inspecting new properties in Sydney’s affluent Eastern suburbs.

The 39-year-old is in the market for a new home after recently selling his $10 million marital mansion in Vaucluse following his split from ex-wife Kyly.

The price guide for the property was originally $3.9 million, but it sold at auction for a whopping $6.1 million.

It comes after Michael and ex-wife Kyly recently sold their marital home following their split. 

According to realestate.com.au, the mansion, located in the upmarket Sydney suburb of Vaucluse, was sold this month in a secret deal, for around $10 million. 

The Australian Cricket captain and his former TV star wife bought the stunning five-bedroom home for $8.5million in 2014.

They acquired the home on March 21 that year, after the previous owners agreed to drop the price down from $9.5 million, Fairfax Media reported at the time.

He and Kyly moved in to the Vaucluse mansion in early May 2014 – where they soon started their family, with daughter Kelsey Lee arriving the following year in 2015. 

Built in 2009, the previous structure was demolished and the land valued at just $700,000 back in 1993.
