Former Australian cricket captain Steve Smith and his wife Dani Willis have lodged paperwork for extensive renovation to their recently purchased $6.6 million home in Sydney’s Vaucluse.

The athlete, 31, is seeking to completely remodel each level of his four bedroom and six-bathroom abode from the basement to the master suite.

A larger gym, a mammoth extension to the kitchen and a no-expense-spared living room for entertainment purposes is all part of Steve’s vision for his impressive new three-storey property, according to The Sunday Telegraph.

Plans for the renovation by Precision Planning has been lodged by Steve and Dani’s finance adviser Trent Tavoletti from Titan Finance.

As well as making the gym in his basement bigger, the star is keen on expanding his kitchen to an open-plan dining room complete with stacked doors and plenty of windows.

His hopes to extend the kitchen against a specific wall will see the current study turn into a luxurious butler’s pantry.

The happy couple are also hoping to install a statement fireplace and integrated TV set up in the living room.

The cricketer apparently also has plans to make his master suite grander.

It’s been suggested that their walk-in wardrobe will have a central island and a freestanding bath, shower and dual his-and-her vanity placed in their en-suite.

Woollahra Council has yet to sign off on Steve and Dani’s extensive home renovation plans.

Back in July, the pair snapped up a $6.6 million home in Sydney’s affluent suburb of Vaucluse.

The pair first inspected the mansion, which was reportedly on the market for $6.8 million, in May.

The incredible home is near to the water and has impressive views of Sydney Harbour. 

As well as a gym, it has a number of luxury features including an in-ground pool and a spa experience with a steam room. 

It’s also perfect for entertaining, with a wine cellar that can hold 400 bottles of the good stuff.

There is also a purpose-built barbecue and wine fridge to add to the alfresco dining experience.     

It is believed the couple plan to either renovate or rebuild the home to suit their taste.  

The couple lived at their beach side abode in Coogee, which they snapped up in 2011, until recently. 

They also own properties in Balmain, Marrickville, Sans Souci and Birchgrove.
