Sunil Manohar Gavaskar, or ‘Sunny,’ as he is more popularly known, is an unforgettable hero of Indian cricket. Being a Mumbaikar, Sunil Gavaskar house too lies in the city from where he rose to stardom.
His bright career, captaincy of the Indian cricket team, and inimitable copybook-style of play have earned him numerous accolades at home and abroad. He has made India proud by winning many matches, scoring more than 10,000 runs in test cricket and scoring 35 centuries in international cricket.

In terms of Sunil Gavaskar’s house, the legend owns two properties in Worli, Mumbai. The more famous of these is an apartment on the entire eighth floor of a sea-facing nine-storeyd building called the Sportsfield. During the COVID lockdown, he left Sportsfield and stayed mainly at the other Worli house. Gavaskar also owns property in places like Panvel.

The property at Assagao, north Goa, is one that Gavaskar chose during one of his vacations in the state, to have his very own holiday home.

Before deciding on buying this property in 2017, the Gavaskars spent a week at Isprava’s fully furnished Villa Evora to experience Isprava’s tailor-made lifestyle for the rich. I guess it would be fair to say that the little master was bowled by the uniquely stylised villa house. Isprava has top industrialists, celebrities, promoters and founders of large Indian companies among its clientele.

Although Gavaskar maintains an Instagram account that is filled with his portraits, there are, however, very pics of his plush four-bedroomed villa of Isprava on the internet. So what is so lovely about this house that it convinced our cricket hero to make it his holiday home? Let us have a look at the unique features of this property.
Sunil Gavaskar house: Key features
The villa, built on a private plot, is surrounded by natural greenery, as seen elsewhere in Goa. Carrying the signature style of Isprava, this villa is made in European fashion and is fully furnished. There are sprawling lawns, carefully nurtured flower gardens, and a private pool. Most of the unique interior elements have been sourced from palaces and manors worldwide.

At a Rs 20-crore price tag, it might be considered humble from today’s perspective, but it was quite something in 2017, considering that compensations and brand endorsements were not that fabulous in the days of Gavaskar.
These holiday home amenities are run by a team of competent people, another signature of Isprava. Sunil liked this concept very much. So the property is replete with servant quarters. Its furnishing is fortified with modern appliances too.
Gavaskar’s Goa house has a unique white coloured facade showing up behind a huge rectangular terrace on top of a portico. The outdoor swimming pool is bordered by stone-clad passages and green grass.
The portico has a hanging lantern-shaped ceiling light to illuminate the space below. The two-storey white villa has rich brown polished wooden windows and doors. The greenery of the lawn all around is eye-catching and the terrace has a shaded swing atop.

Sunil Gavaskar house décor
The house has a huge living-cum-dining hall. The patterned white-themed floor is adorned by sit-outs and a matching dining table, furnished by six cyan-coloured cushioned metal chairs. The classy metal railings of the first-floor balcony over the hall takes one to the first-floor rooms. The cool décor reflects the maestro who held the record of the highest ever score by a debutant at 774.
The wall opposite the balcony or alley is decorated with lovely paintings. Furniture on the ground and first floor of this villa are vintage or antique and mainly imported. The lawns have lovely gazebos to pass the leisurely time on vacation.
Stained glass designs on top of entry doors to the ground floor hall give it the divineness of a chapel, aptly complemented by the black and white-themed floor. The grey and yellow alternate stone chequering of the floor facing the swimming pool adds a magical foreground to it.
Sunil Gavaskar’s holiday home will appeal to people who are not too fascinated by snazzy and trendy house designs, modern gadgetry, or eye-popping facades. This house, on the contrary, exudes class and aristocracy.
