Behind the quirky exterior of a single-storey in country Victoria lies a stunning family home, complete with a stunning man-made beach in the backyard.
The one-of-a-kind four-bedroom in Sunday Creek, one hour’s drive north of Melbourne, features a marble entranceway, a movie theatre, a temperature-controlled wine cellar and a sprawling open-plan kitchen fitted with premium appliances and an adjoining butler’s pantry.
Enormous windows capture breathtaking views of the surrounding 32-acre farmland from every room, with the best found in one of the ensuite bathrooms where a waterfall shower looks out over rolling hills.
But the standout feature is undoubtedly the resort-style lagoon and sand-strewn lounge area that looks more like something you’d find in an upscale hotel than the garden of a private residence in rural Australia.

Designed in 2015 by glazier Alex Greco for his wife Nicole and their twin daughters Mia and Tahlia, nine, the house is the pinnacle of architectural creativity, with the pool alone taking two and a half years to complete.
A timber sun deck with retractable umbrellas and a large dining table faces the water, providing a vantage point for parents to keep an eye on kids as they swim and dive off the rocks.
The interior has been carefully laid out to overlook as much of the surrounding landscape as possible.
‘Having my own glass company, I wanted to add the beauty of large windows and a glass entrance as this would complement the beautiful views the land has to offer,’ Mr Greco told realestate.com.au.
The house even has its own fish-filled lake, large enough to paddle a kayak around in the summer – the perfect place for children to grow up.
Other highlights include a self-contained guest cabin, parking space for eight cars and a paddock and stables for horses.
Mr Greco and his family are relocating closer to the coast, giving prospective buyers the chance to own a beach in their own backyard.
The house has been listed with realtor Ray White Craigieburn with an asking price of $1.2 to $1.3million (AUD).
It is scheduled for auction on Saturday, November 28.
