Aussie sporting great John Newcombe once walked these halls on Sydney's upper north shore – perhaps on route to a play a match on the home court against another luminary.
Fittingly, there is a sensational, championship-sized tennis court at 25B Orinoco Street, Pymble – one of the biggest properties in the suburb.
The elegant eight-bedroom estate is a former home of the tennis legend, the listing explains. He is a Davis Cup hero, a winner of all four Grand Slam tournaments and one of the few men to have risen to world number one in both singles and doubles.
The highest individual honour in Aussie tennis is named the Newcombe Medal in recognition of his stature.
"Privately nestled on an impressive 7322 square metres, this stunning estate lays claim to Pymble's largest land holding and the former residence of Australian tennis champion John Newcombe," the listing, on the books of Orr&Co Estate Agents, says.
"A glorious presentation of timeless elegance, it luxuriates in old world Spanish inspirations across two sweeping levels spanning 500 square metres, complete with magnificent living spaces spilling to Elysian alfresco zones.
"Outdoor entertaining highlights comprise a large swimming pool and a championship size hard tennis court that has played host to some of the world's greatest luminaries."
Agents Phil Orr and Tam Orr are looking after the listing, which is for private sale.
