4 Scarborough Court, Tarneit - for herald sun real estate

4 Scarborough Court, Tarneit, is one of the few Victorian-style homes in the suburb.


Tarneit isn’t know for its Victorian-style homes, but a rare residence that captures the ethos is wowing buyers.

The custom-designed home at 4 Scarborough Court took a year to build in 2005 in the sought-after Royal Oaks estate and is filled with period style from its 2.7m ceilings to its double-hung windows, ceiling roses and timber floors.

Barry Plant Tarneit director Rick O’Halloran said the house was “one of the most elite” in the suburb and on a very short list of Victorian-style homes in the postcode.

Mr O’Halloran added that one of the first people through the home had walked out saying “this is not a house, this is a palace”.

It’s a fair statement, given the home’s 500sq m interior includes four living spaces, with daily life centred on the open-plan entertainment zone at the rear of the ground level.

The home’s open-plan living zone accentuates the space on offer.

The home’s rear sun room can be walled off by bistro blinds for year-round enjoyment.


Anchored by a kitchen with bullnose granite benchtops, European appliances and a walk-in pantry, the space opens via French doors to a sun room with a built-in barbecue and sink, plus bistro screens to make it comfortable in the cooler months.

The main bedroom has an ensuite and walk-in wardrobe, and joins a guest bedroom with a bay window on the ground level. Four more bedrooms share the upper level with a bathroom, media room and east-facing balcony.

The front living room has a fireplace and the front door is surrounded by leadlight windows.

From the tiles to the freestanding bath tub, the bathroom also maintains period style.


Mr O’Halloran estimated the pattern paved driveway would have cost more than $30,000 alone.

“You’d fit eight cars on it, and then there’s side access beside the garage and home that’s big enough to put a truck through,” he said.

“And that goes out to the man cave with space for two or three caravans.”

The home’s rear wall has extensive glass to provide a strong connection to the sun room.

The upstairs living space has a balcony just outside with views across the suburb.


With a $1.35m-$1.45m asking price the home is listed for private sale.
