Lleyton Hewitt and wife Bec have listed their Toorak mansion in Melbourne for an eye-watering price of $15-16 million.

The Hewitts bought the property in 2016, reportedly for $12.7 million.

They stand to make over $3 million if they get the price they are asking for.

Rumours have been swirling in recent weeks that the Hewitts are looking to move back to Sydney.

The European-style mansion includes five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and an underground garage for six cars.

“It’s a stunning home, beautifully proportioned and perfect for entertaining because it has a beautiful outdoor entertainment area and it is very private and secure,” Phillip French of Jellis Craig Armadale told Domain.com.au.

“It’s really got everything a family could want.

“You combine that with the outdoor space, where you have an outdoor kitchen and a family-friendly items like an in-built trampoline, a basketball hoop, astro turf with a Rebound Ace tennis surface and a heated pool.

“It’s a real entertainer’s home – with summer and the end of lockdown, (the next owners can) get the family and friends over, and even have a beautiful Christmas there as well.”

Lleyton and Bec Hewitt have been married since 2005 and have three children together - Mia 15, Cruz, 12, and Ava, 10.

Lleyton Hewitt won two grand slam singles titles across an 18-year professional tennis career, becoming World No.1 in 2001.

He has since moved into commentary and coaching and is Australia's current Davis Cup captain.

Last week, Hewitt confirmed Alex de Minaur will spearhead Australia's team for the Davis Cup Finals in Europe later this month.

John Millman, Jordan Thompson, Alexei Popyrin and doubles ace John Peers will travel to Turin to compete in the group stage against Croatia and Hungary from November 25.

James Duckworth, the Australian No.2 sitting at a career-high 51st in the world rankings, has been overlooked.

"Team selection is never easy," Hewitt said.

"We will be led by our No.1 Alex de Minaur, who has had a really consistent three to four years on the tour and has established himself as a top player.

"John Millman gave us the opportunity to play in these Davis Cup Finals a year and a half ago in Adelaide against Brazil. He bleeds green and gold and loves representing Australia.

"Jordan Thompson has played some big matches in Davis Cup in the past. He had a great doubles win with John Peers, beating Colombia two years ago.

"He and 'Peersy' know how to play well together if they get the opportunity to play in one of our crucial doubles matches.

"Alexei Popyrin plays his best tennis in the biggest matches and the biggest tournaments. He has a lot of firepower and a lot of weapons and it's nice to have another young gun in the team.

"And John Peers has been a consistent performer in our Davis Cup team for a number of years. We know what we get with Peersy, he's had a big win at Indian Wells recently and we're excited to see him bring this form to the Davis Cup Finals."
