Shane Warne had plans to build a luxury £2.8million mansion with a bowling alley and jet ski garage prior to his tragic passing.
The legendary spin bowler sadly passed away at the age of 52 from a suspected heart attack in Thailand last Friday.
Before his death, Warne had been planning to use his $50million net worth to build a $5million mansion in the affluent Melbourne suburb of Portsea, having purchased land in the area in 2020.
Planning permission was submitted in August last year to build a sprawling family compound on the 2,000 square-metre allotment which he had purchased for $4million.
In addition to a bowling alley and jet ski garage, the home would also include a library, gym, theatre, wine cellar and games room, according to the Herald Sun.
The property would also have a garage with room for three cars, an observation deck and three bedrooms.
The master bedroom is understood to have been planned to include an ensuite bathroom, dressing room and a walk-in wardrobe.
Having purchased the land in October 2020, Warne submitted planning permission for his mansion in August last year.

These plans also included a four-bedroom guest house, which would be built around an outdoor swimming pool.
A music room, bar and barbeque area were also set to be built if the plans were approved by the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council.
During and after his cricket career, Warne was able to build up an impressive property portfolio, having also reportedly had a net worth of $50million at the time of his death.
Amongst his properties was his famous 'Melville' mansion in Brighton, Melbourne, which he purchased and sold on two separate occasions.
Warne and his ex-wife Simone Callahan initially purchased the property in 2000 for $3.6million before renovating it and selling it for $8.8million in 2007.
He bought the mansion for a second time in 2016 for $14.2million and then made another large profit as he sold it for a reported $20million.
