Taylors Lakes mansion with nightclub-like staircase, bar that resembles a boat anchors new suburban record

A west Melbourne home with a glass staircase and ship-inspired bar has set a new suburban price record more than $600,000 above the area’s previous benchmark.

A glamorous Taylors Lakes mansion with a nightclub-esque glass staircase and bar designed to resemble a ship has sailed to a new suburban price record by selling for $2.5 million.

The house at 11 Fitzgerald Court crossed $620,000 above Taylors Lakes’ previous $1.88 million residential price record of $1.88 million set by 6 Juniper Court in 2019.

Highlights of the new record-setter include a tennis court, indoor pool and sauna area.

YPA Caroline Springs agent Andrew Migliorisi said a local family bought the house in a private sale.

The bar of the house, Mr. Migliorisi, with draft beer, a sink and four minibar fridges, was located under the curved glass staircase.

“Walking down you definitely get that nightclub feeling,” said Mr Migliorisi.

The home owner said the curved bar and kitchen bench were designed to resemble a ship.

One of her children held a wedding reception at the property, attended by 150 people.

The owner said the house was ideal for entertainment, including a theater room with a projection screen and built-in speakers.

There are two double garages, one with a kitchen.

The master bedroom has a walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom with a jetted tub.

Mr Migliorisi said Fitzgerald Court was home to a friendly group of residents who hosted a street party every Christmas.

He said the new owners of the house were drawn to the sense of community in the neighborhood and the house itself.

“The buyers spoke to one of the neighbors who told them all about the value of living in the area and the property itself, they loved every inch of it,” said Mr Migliorisi.

The house was advertised with an asking price of $2.4 million – $2.6 million.

CoreLogic records show the home last sold for $1.1 million in 2004.
