A Brighton East compound like a “Whitsundays resort” is offering buyers a house just to park their cars in.
The unusual garage gambit has room for up to seven vehicles, a turntable, Tasmanian oak floorboards, and a glass wall so you can see your pride and joy from the backyard.
It was created after the current owners of 13 Creswick St bought the neighbouring property over the back fence in Churchill Court.
But with the owners ready to move on, the neighbourhood power move is revving up to smash the local price record.
Buxton Bentleigh’s Todd Dixon said a sale in the home’s $6.98m-$7.35m price guide would “smash” the suburb’s $6.3m high-water mark.
“It’s one consolidated block, which was two separate titles,” Mr Dixon said.
“But they gutted the house on Churchill (Court) and made it into a big garage.”
The second home also has a self-contained unit with a bedroom, living space and kitchen.
A metal frame was added to support a second-storey extension in the future while transforming it.
“So it could be changed back into a home and subdivided,” Mr Dixon said.
But with the backyard fence torn down to make full use of a northwest orientation, the sprawling 1343sq m block has significant appeal as a private oasis that “just feels like you are in a Whitsundays resort”.
A granite-paved courtyard joins a 15sq m pool with a sunlounge shelf that adjoins a barbecue zone in prime position between the main home and the garage.
The backyard also hosts a gym, and a soundproofed theatre caters for rainy days.
“It’s a big space … you could play the drums or the electric guitar without disturbing anyone,” Mr Dixon said.
Luxury features in the four-bedroom main residence include French oak floors, twin crystal chandeliers in the kitchen and Wolf appliances.
The Hamptons-style home has a study, multiple living areas, a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite in every bedroom, plus views to Brighton Golf Course.
