The owner, who asked not to name, said a never-ridden 2017 Royal Enfield 350 Classic motorcycle was the “centerpiece” of the living room.
“It has become quite a feature as it is very visible from the front of our house, with most people referring to our house as the ‘bike house,’” said the seller.
“We like to collect art and it is literally a work of art on wheels.”
The owner described his 30 m² basement as “a car collector’s dream garage”.
“We love our garage and it’s been great, it comfortably parks nine designated cars, but we’ve had up to 15 cars parked side-by-side and edge-to-edge,” he said.
“This space includes an entertainment area, with built-in surround sound system, 75-inch TV, and electric ceiling-mounted heaters.”
His family’s collection of cars and motorcycles “very rare limited edition collector’s item” is displayed alongside memorabilia such as a gas bow and number plates.
While none of these are included in the sale, the illuminated signs for luxury sports car brands such as Ferrari installed on the garage posts will remain when the family moves out.
The space can also be converted into a home theater or music recording studio.
Describing the home as “an artist’s true dream home,” the seller said his family appreciated its three living areas, the rear outdoor area with a barbecue kitchen, as well as an open fireplace and pool overlooking the lake. the “spectacular” Maribyrnong Rio.
Inside, a bar with the capacity to display 114 bottles of wine, plus more in its four fridges, adds appeal to the living and dining area.
“We’ve lived here for six years and created many special family memories, including our oldest son’s 18th birthday, when we hosted around 100 family and friends,” said the owner.
“It is a true family destination with lots of parks, walking trails, horse riding and running on our doorstep.”
The home was custom built by Sapphire Constructions in 2016 and is one of several custom builds the owners have undertaken.
Describing the six-bedroom, six-bathroom home as the best home on the market at the moment, Nelson Alexander’s partner Paul Harrison said it was “a landmark in our area” with its massive garage and prominent location near the river.
“You could count on your fingers how many properties could house so many cars on this side of the river,” Harrison said.
The impressive 837 m² property was one of the largest blocks on The Boulevard.
“The Boulevard is one of the most sought after tracks in our region,” he said.
The house is listed with an asking price of $7.4 million to $7.9 million. Expressions of interest in the house end on May 31.
