Former Australian cricket captain Steve Smith has spent $6.6 million on a family home in Vaucluse.

The four-bedroom, six-bath home was inspected by Smith and his wife Dani Willis in late May, having been leasing nearby.

Danny Doff of Laing and Simmons Double Bay secured the sale which Smith and Willis will renovate extensively.

The house, which has an inground pool, gym, steam room, four-car garage, 400-bottle wine cellar and travertine-tiled outdoor entertaining terrace with a built-in BBQ and wine fridge, last traded in 2005 for $3.22 million.

It also has views out towards Sydney Harbour. Prior to buying the home, the Smiths had been renting in the area, having sold the Coogee apartment they had owned since 2011.

Smith had other reasons to celebrate this week, marking his return to training with a cheeky Instagram post.

Fully padded and wearing a helmet, he told his two million followers: “First hit in the nets in 3 months. Good news...I remembered how to hold the bat.”

Smith and the Aussie team haven’t played a competitive game since their one day international win over New Zealand in mid-March. The series was cancelled shortly after due to the pandemic.

The couple add the Vaucluse house to an already-crowded property portfolio, which also includes homes in Balmain, Birchgrove, Marrickville and Sans Souci.
