Tennis player Lleyton Hewitt has relisted his long-vacant $3 million West Lakes house in Adelaide.

The home in Adelaide’s west is listed through Harcourts Aqua agent Steve von der Borch who last had its marketing in 2011.

Hewitt’s parents Glynn and Cherilyn Hewitt gave permission to upload interior photos of the 29 Martin Court property as part of the marketing.

“We’re not selling a secret anymore and we can make a bit of noise about it, so we’ve put it up online and will put it up on an international website and very likely it will form part of what we’ll take to China for a property exhibition in Shanghai in December,” Mr von der Borch told the local paper.

Hewitt bought the West Lakes home on its 801 square metre block in 2003 for $3.2 million.

It has been vacant for most of the time since with Hewitt and his wife Bec having no plans to return to the luxury home.

They live in Nassau, in the Bahamas, with their three children — Ava, Cruz and Mia. They retain homes at Kenthurst and Palm Beach in Sydney. Their St Kilda Road, Melbourne apartment on the 19th floor of Yve is quietly for sale.

The hometown Adelaide property was first listed in November 2008 with a $2.95 million to $3.24 million price range.

Mr von der Borch said the original asking price had not changed.

The home with 700 square metres of living space has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, an indoor lap pool, spa, and sauna area with mural, rock wall water feature.

RP Data puts the West Lakes median house price at $620,000.
