Kew East: bar, cinema and billiard room create ultimate man cave
The ultimate man cave can be found at a French provincial-style Kew East home that has just hit the market.
From the cinema and billiard room to the bar, cellar and steam sauna, this basement retreat at 16 Boorool Rd is impressive.
And, if you are a car fanatic, the six-car basement garage only adds to the appeal of the man cave.

It is not what you would expect to find behind a grand French provincial-style facade with double-height pillars.
The detailed facade, paired with a luxury interior, creates a family home in a sought-after spot.
Buxton Balwyn director William Chen said as well as the man cave, the new house was really high quality.
“They have used marble in the kitchen and bathrooms and the natural light is really good,” Mr Chen said.
A formal living space upon entry through the front door and a sweeping staircase with rooftop oculus provides a grand first impression.
Decorative pillars continue inside the new house, continuing the home’s French theme.
The formal entry flows into the open-plan living area that is clearly the heart of the home.
There is an extravagant marble and Miele kitchen with induction cooktop and a second kitchen in the butler’s pantry and a meals area and lounge that overlook the inviting swimming pool with feature tile backdrop.
At the top of the sweeping staircase, where natural light floods in due to the oculus, are four more bedrooms and a third lounge.
