Star Wars fans could be the talk of the Galactic Empire with this one-of-a-kind, block of land that comes with DA approval for a home that is built like a Star Wars-themed spaceship.
If you want to embrace the dark side, a 2.3ha block of land at 131 Pipers Creek Rd, Kyneton, in Victoria, is for sale with a price guide of $1.05 million to $1.15 million.
Seller, Shyam Avatapalli said he had always wanted to design something unique and landed on the sci-fi design because it fit the block perfectly.
“I’ve always wanted to do something different and I had been flipping through a few ideas,” Mr Avatapalli said.
“When I saw the land, it just clicked and I settled on this design for the block.
“It looks like the spaceship has landed just next to the creek.”
Mr Avatapalli said he expected the design to be controversial, but it will appeal to true fans.
“You’re either really going to like it or you’re not, but Star Wars has such massive appeal across all generations and I’ve always been interested in futuristic designs,” he said.
“I wanted to pick something that’s buildable and simple enough but also something that really stands out.
“This shape is in The Mandolorian TV series and has showed up in some of the older movies so I thought it was perfect to really represent the Star Wars series.”
Mr Avatapalli worked with architects to develop the cutting-edge design that remained budget-friendly by choosing simple and cost-effective materials including Colourbond steel.
With a 25-degree pitch, the roof design allows for Colourbond steel installation in a flat lock pattern, providing the building with a spaceship-like flat appearance.
Mr Avatapalli designed the sci-fi property with three water tanks and took inspiration from the jet engine of a Boeing 747 plane.
He said the middle water tank is designed to feature a decommissioned titanium Rolls-Royce Jet Engine Turbine fan that once powered a British Airways jumbo jet in the 1970’s.
While the three outward facing water tanks are designed to be fitted with LED or neon lighting.
“The design is intended to amalgamate a unique piece of aviation history into the house while the water tank lighting design was inspired by spaceship jet engines with the blue and orange fire effect,” Mr Avatapalli said.
Inside the home, the hallway has been designed to mimic a spaceship tunnel while the kitchen island bench is intended to be a parallelogram shape to give the room a futuristic look.
Located in the Macedon Ranges, the land is well positioned to capitalise on a huge investment in the infrastructure in the region including a new $150 million development.
Ray White Bayswater selling agent Brendan Milner said the unique designs will also get attention.
“It’s something really different and I think it will attract both Star Wars fans and those with an appreciation for something eccentric and architecturally designed,” Mr Milner said.
“The plans are approved and are being offered with the block so it’s completely ready for a new buyer to come in and complete Shyam’s vision.”
