Australia Test vice-captain Steve Smith has sold his Vaucluse mansion in Sydney for $12.38 million. He and his partner Dani Willis bought it for $6.6 million back in 2020.

According to a report by the Sydney Morning Herald, the mansion went under the hammer on Thursday, with four parties showing interest in it. The bidding opened at $11.5 million for the four-bedroom, three-bathroom house.

Damien Cooley, of Cooley Auctions, played the auctioneer's role in this auction. Initially, he asked for bids to increase by $250,000, but since the bidders held back, he brought the number down to $100,000 and then to $50,000 and eventually $30,000, with the final bidder buying it for $12.38 million.

Around 180 groups reportedly inspected the home. At the end of the auction, auctioneer Cooley commented on the result:

“I think it’s a great result in the current market. It is a beautiful home, beautifully built, and it was a good result to have four registered bidders.”

Apart from being one of the best batters in the world, Steve Smith has also focused on renovating properties as a side-hustle. Back in 2015, he bought a rundown house in Balmain East for $2 million, rebuilt it and has now leased it for $2200 a week.
