But now he’s ready to sell in Melbourne and hopes to spend more time up north with Anderson and their sons, Charlie, Ben and identical twins Jack and Harry.

“Covid has changed a lot and the family has turned around, so it’s a shame to live in such a big house here,” Crawford said.

Built in 1887, the property known as ‘Ellesmere’ features a 20-metre swimming pool, tennis court, gym and steam room.

While retaining some traditional features, the house has been thoroughly modernized with marble fireplaces, Italian marble benches and hydraulic underfloor heating.

“It’s the four boys’ childhood home, so it’s sad. But times have changed and we are so excited about the next chapter.”
