In 2007, the King of Spin – Shane Warne – acquired 16 Park Street in Brighton, Victoria for $3.7 million before taking the place apart, making it his own, and offloading the property for a cool $3 million profit. That very same Brighton home has once again listed, this time for an asking price of $10 million, and if you play your cards right like the big fella himself at the old poker table, you could be kicking back in a pretty damn sweet bachelor pad.
Warnie-related innuendo aside, there’s a decent amount to be enjoyed in this 5-bedroom, 6-bathroom, and 1,236-square metre property. Featuring the basic niceties you’ve probably come to expect whenever BH covers a property – tennis court, fully decked-out gym, heated pool + spa, home cinema, home office, multiple kitchens, wine cellar, etc. – the major point of difference this time around involves a custom 5-car basement garage complete with a built-in turntable.
The garage is so cavernous, in fact, that it also doubles as a workshop and rec room where you can store the odd container, fit a billiards table in the corner, hang up a punching bag, all while enjoying a direct view of your Porsche 911 GT3.
“The tennis court is a drawcard because it runs north to south,” notes Andrew Campbell of Marshall White.
“In Brighton, a lot of clients want the north to south tennis court.”
What also needs to be commended is how 16 Park Street manages to seamlessly blend portions of the house together, creating a free flow from the interior to the outdoor entertaining space, pool, and tennis court; as well as the elegant master bedroom – where the magic would have definitely happened – to the ensuite, which happens to includes a tasteful freestanding bathtub and dressing room.
