Will buyers move like Greased Lightning?

This party pad packed with ‘50s flair could just be the Promised Land for Elvis fans in Melbourne.

Custom built by its era-loving owners, the cool character at 6 Witchmount Close, Hillside was designed with Good Times and Happy Days in mind.

Adorned with Elvis and Marilyn prints and dripping in imported marble and granite finishes, the property is like nothing else in the suburb — 23km northwest of the CBD — and possibly the country.

Good Times await.

Happy Days.

“It’s owner built. He’s a builder and he’s designed it,” OBrien agent Stacy Ray told the Herald Sun.

“It’s unique, one of a kind, there are no other homes like that in Victoria, or Australia, with that exact floorplan.

“The owner has been a massive collector for a while now. He loves the cars, style, Elvis and the 1950s and ‘60s era, and he and his wife have loved the upstairs rumpus room with the dancefloor.

“It’s all about getting friends and family together and having a good time.”

The lavish home as a unique floorplan.

You wouldn’t have had this in the ‘50s.

Room for a dancefloor in the bedroom, too.

While the diner booths, jukebox, bar and other memorabilia will be heading off with the sellers when they seek a Change of Habitat, the black and white chequered dancefloor will be awaiting the Blue Suede Shoes, and regular footwear, of its new owners.

The four-bedroom property is ready to roll on the private sale market with a $1.25-$1.35 million price guide.
