Sophistication combines with easy elegance in the charming home of former Australian cricketer and current cricket commentator Glenn McGrath, his wife Sara, and their children, James, 19, Holly,18, and Madison, four.
"Our home is definitely a reflection of my travels and background, but also the things Glenn and I have collected through the years," says Sara, an art dealer turned tie-dye fashion entrepreneur.
"I love a home that tells you a story about the people that live in it."
"It's a beautiful home, because it's all on one level, and it's very airy and breezy – we definitely wanted to keep that – but the idea was to have the spaces flow," says Sara, who worked with the late Bobby Singh from BKH Interiors on the design.
Updates included a stunning kitchen showcasing a colossal Carrara marble island, four bathrooms (worthy of a five-star hotel) - including a new ensuite for James - and a built-in desk for Holly's room.
With its outlook to the water, Sara and Glenn's bedroom lends itself to easy, breezy Sunday mornings.
"If the weather is good, we take our paddleboards and go out the back," says Sara.
