Johannesburg - Murder accused Paralympian Oscar Pistorius wants to sell his house in Pretoria where model Reeva Steenkamp was shot dead, a family spokesperson said on Monday.

"He has signalled his intention to sell [the house], but nothing has been done pro-actively to start the process," Johan van Wyk said.

He said the family would issue a statement on the matter soon.

Pistorius is accused of murdering his girlfriend, Steenkamp, at the house, in the Silver Woods Country Estate, on Valentine's Day.

He was granted R1m bail on 22 February. His lawyers have argued that he believed there was an intruder in his house.
