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

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

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

Highlights of the new record holder include a tennis court, indoor swimming pool and sauna.

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

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

“When you walk around, you definitely get that nightclub feel,” Mr. Migliorisi said.

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

One of his children hosted a wedding reception at the property with 150 people in attendance.

The owner said the house was ideal for entertaining with features such as a cinema room including a projection screen and built-in speakers.

There are two double garages, one of which contains a kitchen.

The master bedroom has a dressing room and an en-suite bathroom with a spa bath.

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

He said the new owners of the house were drawn to the neighborhood’s sense of community as well as the house itself.

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

The home was advertised with an asking price of $2.4-2.6 million.

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