Inside the Brighton mansion with a nightclub underneath the swimming pool


A sprawling mansion in one of Melbourne‘s ritziest coastal suburbs hides a secret beneath the swimming pool.

The five-bedroom house in Brighton, 12 kilometres south-east of the CBD, boasts an underground nightclub with a 35-seater sofa, a fully functional cocktail bar and a light-up disco floor framed by a window that looks into the pool above.

Standout features of the three-storey home set on 510 square metres of land include a hotel-inspired master bedroom with its own private lift, multiple sunlit living spaces, a fingerprint-protected wine cellar big enough to hold 1,000 bottles and lavish marble bathrooms with freestanding tubs and double-head waterfall showers.

The house is filled with luxury finishes, from hardwood floors in the entryway to a marble island with leather seating in the spacious chef’s kitchen.

Floor-to-ceiling doors open out onto a resort-style yard with an outdoor pool and spa, a sunbathing deck, and an alfresco terrace with a fireplace.

The pool is heated and temperature controlled, meaning you can enjoy it all year round.

Cutting-edge technology has been installed throughout the property, including automatic curtains that can be operated by mobile app, a built-in speaker system connected to every room and a drop-down TV in the suite-style master bedroom worth an estimated $30,000.

There’s also a four-car parking garage beside the nightclub in the groovy basement.

The vendors, a family who are ‘young at heart’, collaborated with local design firm Golden to create a home their children would not be in a hurry to leave. 

The house hit the market on July 10 with a price guide of $9.5million to $10.2million (AUD) – three times higher than the average property price in the area, which was $3.2million in 2020, according to figures from realestate.com.au.

But listing agent Sam Iman, who is overseeing the sale for real estate agency Belle Property, believes the house is more than worth its dizzying price tag.

‘Everything you can possibly imagine has been put into this house,’ Mr Iman told Daily Mail Australia. 

‘It’s one of those homes you would never be able to replicate – and if you did, it wouldn’t work so well.’

Mr Iman said ‘it’s not everyday’ you see such a lavish house built on a relatively small plot.

‘It’s a singularly unique house, it’s a showpiece,’ he added.
