Three garages — one containing “the ultimate man cave” — take this century-old Diamond Creek homestead up a gear for rev heads.
They form part of the 32-36 Perversi Avenue property’s unusually large landholding for the area, sprawling 4411sq m, alongside the renovated three-bedroom home, a pool, a spa, a rotunda with a 10-seater table, and a covered alfresco area with a barbecue.
The property is on the market with a $1.85m-$1.95m price guide.
“There’s a single-car garage, a double-car garage and a five-car garage,” Barry Plant Diamond Creek agent Peter Koiker said.
The largest features a bar that wouldn’t look out of place in an Aussie pub, and is decked out with a pool table, a mounted TV and Harley Davidson merch.
Mr Koiker said the owners of the past two decades had renovated the house to retain classic character, while making it fit for modern living.
High ceilings, leadlight windows, original Baltic pine floors, three fireplaces and a claw-foot bath showcase period glamour inside Villa Bereguardo.
A wine merchant who the street was named after built the 1920s homestead. He engaged F.C. Jennings, which also constructed the local Diamond Creek Tavern, for the job.
“(It) really does have you feel like you’ve stepped in a time machine,” the agent said.
“It’s so rare to come across a property like this, which is not only steeped in such
amazing history, but also has been so wonderfully preserved while further offering
Views across the Kinglake Ranges, and glimpses of the city, complete the offering, which is being sold privately.
