A rev-head dad has found the perfect home for his family, with something for everyone — and a 25-car shed for his own prized collection.
The 5700sq m property at 2 Legerwood Rd, Narre Warren North was snapped up by buyers from Dandenong with a car collection and vehicles for their concrete business.
Pride of place is a huge, secure shed that can store 25 cars, thanks to a series of stackers installed when the property was renovated and extended more than a dozen years ago.
The super-sized shed has held among others the vendor’s 1925 Fiat 509S model, 23-Window Volkswagen Kombi and several Holdens and Fords including a Bathurst Camaro and VK Blue Meanie.
Family living and entertaining is a breeze in the luxury home and the children can roam and explore on the massive block including a tennis court and basketball ring.
The five-bedroom house sold for just under the vendor’s price hopes of $2.2-$2.4 million and took three months for the buyer to emerge.
“There were five offers for the property and a keen car collector and concreter and his family are moving in,” OBrien Narre Warren director Fabian Villella said.
“They had been looking at acreages and found this property with car storage and enough space for the kids.”
Mr Villella said the property had more than 50 groups at inspections which he said was good “for its price point”.
All the offers came from buyers living in nearby suburbs.
“The sale above $2 million will encourage more owners of luxury properties in the suburb to list and we are starting to see this,” Mr Villella added.
The shed with a high clearance complements the resort-style features of the property.
The vendors added a swimming pool and spa and also a tennis court with a Rebound Ace blue surface similar to the one used in the Australian Open.
It also has large living and entertainment spaces, plus a designer kitchen and a rumpus room with a bar.
