Melbourne, Nov.10 : Australian tennis star Lleyton Hewitt has decided to sell his 3.2 million Australian dollar waterfront mansion, complete with an indoor waterfall, as he rarely lives in it.
The two-storied, 700sqm home features an indoor pool, spa, sauna, commercial cool room, home theatre, billiards room and sports bar and a interior moss rock waterfall. The house is located in prestigious Island Point and overlooks a boating lake. The only feature it lacks is a tennis court.
The five-bedroom house is being put on the market as Hewitt is planning a big comeback on the ATP tour after undergoing hip surgery. His father, Glynn, says Hewitt and his wife Bec Cartwright are expecting their second child in January, and also own two substantial Sydney properties: one at Palm Beach and another at Kenhurst, and therefore, there was no reason to keep the house in South Australia. "We made this decision (to sell) more recently in analysing what his schedule is next year. He's looking to have a more full season on the tour next year to get his rank higher, he's just not going to be here. It's a great place, it's a unique place, it's just a shame that it just doesn't get the use," the Daily Telegraph quoted Glynn, as saying. "He's had it there for five years, even then the property is virtually brand new because he hasn't been in it too much,'' Glynn Hewitt said.
The property has no specific asking price.
