“I got a customised poker table made while living at my old house in Richmond, and when we started to design our Balwyn house I created this room to centre around the table,” Mr Gowans said.

“The games room was where our property’s design started and the flow of the house kind of came from there.”

A full-sized bar with a marble benchtop and a massive wine room complete the impressive space. It’s also decked out in Collingwood and American football memorabilia.

A pool and covered alfresco area at the rear.

The house has a $3.75-$4.125 million price guide.

The entire house is an entertainer’s dream.

The couple sketched their dream home on a napkin before Rycon Building Group created it about three years ago.

Other features of the single-level house include an expansive open-plan living area, gym, luxurious main bedroom with an ensuite and dressing room, kids’ wing and a pool and outdoor entertainment area that backs onto a park.

The property was built about three years ago and has luxury features.

There are five bedrooms.

The house has direct access to a park behind it.

RT Edgar Hawthorn agent Annabelle Feng said the property was unique to the area.

“The house is in Balwyn where there are a lot of French provincial-style properties, but this is much more original,” Ms Feng said.

“It’s very rare to see a Hampton-style property being built.”

The dream home is for private sale.
