Former Australia skipper and the current No.2 ranked Test batsman in the world Steven Smith has put one of his luxurious properties in Sydney up for rent. The stunning townhouse– based in the inner-city suburb of Balmain– is now available in the market for $2000 per week.
The champion Australian batsman had bought the three-bedroom and bathrooms house for a sum of $2 million back in 2015. Since then the house has undergone a complete transformation.
The glossy home features a sleek black and beige decor besides boasting of an open plan kitchen and dining area. The house, which has laminated flooring throughout the property has huge sliding glass doors which pave way for the natural light to come through the lounge. The most stunning feature of the property is the jaw-dropping view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge which is visible from nearly every room in the house.
This property is just one of many luxurious collections of Smith. The right-hander also owns properties in Marrickville, Sans Souci, and Birchgrove. Interestingly, it’s $250 a week less than what Smith had asked for in 2018 and $10 more from its previous quoted amount in 2019.
Steve Smith returns to South Africa for the first time since ball-tampering scandal
Smith, meanwhile, is in South Africa to take part in a three-match T20I and ODI series, starting February 21. This is the first time that Smith has returned to South Africa post that 2018 Newlands ball-tampering scandal that proceeded to rip his reputation to tatters
Smith, along with David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were handed hefty suspensions for plotting and implementing ball-tampering during the Cape Town Test. But the right-hander has since then come back brilliantly through sheer weight of runs, paving way for Australia to retain the Ashes in England in 2019.
Smith shrugged off the claims of getting hostile treatment from the South African fans but he admitted of the revival of past memories while walking into the hotel.
“Probably just walking into the hotel, just initially I was like “last time I was here, it wasn’t pretty”,’ Smith told reporters in Johannesburg.
It wasn’t the best time of my life. But I’ve moved on from that, learned a lot over the last two years and I’m moving forward. It’s good to be back here playing and I’m looking forward to this series” Smith added.
