The pair had moved to Melbourne in 2019 after Matt signed with the Rebels.
The home itself is a modernised 1920s property, which has been updated with an outdoor extension including an entertainment deck with a barbeque and hot tub.
The athletic power couple confirmed they had separated in a statement in July 2020, after almost five years of marriage.

‘It’s with the greatest of respect for one another that we decided to separate earlier this year,’ they said in a joint statement.
‘We felt this was the right course of action and is in the best interests of each other and our current lives. This is something that has evolved and is a mutual decision.
‘Throughout our relationship we have remained private and we ask that our space and privacy continue to be respected during this difficult time for both of us.’
Rumours of a break-up had surfaced in February last year when Ellyse attended the Australian Cricket Awards in Melbourne without her wedding ring.

She didn’t mention Matt in her acceptance speech when she won the Belinda Clark Award for Australia’s best female cricketer for a third consecutive year.
But the couple insisted at the time they were still together and that Ellyse didn’t wear her ring due to a swollen finger.
The exes met at Sydney Airport in 2012 and made their public debut at the John Eales Medal awards the following year.
