Former Diamond Creek pig farm now resort-style family home

It’s hard to imagine this luxury family abode with tennis court and swim up bar has risen out of such humble beginnings in Diamond Creek. But buyers are sure to be happy as pigs in mud.

A sprawling family resort in Diamond Creek has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a pig farm.

Gone are the hundreds of pigs in mud, instead an impressive family home with floodlit tennis court, gym, cricket pitch and infinity pool with swim up bar will keep buyers happy.

Barry Plant Diamond Creek director Peter Koiker said 172 Black Gully Rd was one of the most sought-after properties in Diamond Creek.

“It really is the perfect family residence, from the panoramic views to the amazing internal living space and vast outdoor features,” Mr Koiker said.

“This is the home you buy when you win Tattslotto.”

Pigs had the run of 8ha of land until 2003 when the farm was subdivided. Now 2.8ha of that land is home to a Gary McFarlane-designed residence that feels like a five-star hotel.

The resort-style home is on top of a hill and takes in views to Kinglake and the Dandenong Ranges.

Inside is just as spectacular as the impressive features outside, including the tennis court, basketball court, cricket pitch, outdoor kitchen and swimming pool with swim up bar.

The Caesarstone-laden kitchen has a walk-in pantry and suite of Miele and De Dietrich appliances, including a coffee machine.

The luxury doesn’t stop there with a dining room that comfortably seats 12, fully equipped home cinema and games room with electric fireplace.

The spacious home has the main bedroom, with dressing room and ensuite that includes a twin-seat Lanark spa, in the eastern wing along with a second bedroom with ensuite.

The remaining four bedrooms each have walk-in wardrobes and share two ensuites.
