Point Cook house with Star Wars statue, arcade games may be the Obi-one for you

A suburban house with a Star Wars statue, Street Fighter arcade machines and staircase balustrade valued at about $15,000 is one worth Wookie-ing at.

A western suburbs “stunner” with a large Jar Jar Binks statue, arcade machines and French castle doors definitely has the X-wing factor.

The double-storey house is not in a galaxy far, far away but 16 Sandy Ave, Point Cook.

With it being May 4, celebrated internationally as “May the Fourth (Force) Be With You” Day by Star Wars fans, the property is set to be popular with solo, couple and family buyers alike.

Vendor Kon Rallis, who lives in the house with his wife and two children, custom built the residence about seven years ago.

Mr Rallis said he purchased the theatre room’s Jar Jar Binks figure from a friend who buys and restores models.

“Apart from Jar Jar Binks, probably my favourite feature of the house is the games room,” Mr Rallis said.

One of his Street Fighter arcade machines has more than 30,000 games while an “old school” Star Wars machine is also popular with guests.

The games room has bi-fold doors opening to an outdoor undercover entertaining area with barbecue, oven and sink near a bar and server’s window built into the house.

“We do a lot of entertaining,” Mr Rallis said.

“You don’t get bored as often, if you get sick of the conversation you can play Street Fighter.”

Mr Rallis, who owns house renovation company New Creations Painting & Decorating, said the floating staircase’s balustrade was cut from a single piece of glass.

“I would quote around $15,000 to make and install one like that,” he said.

A wine cellar below the stairs fits 180 bottles.

Mr Rallis restored the property’s front doors himself, after they were imported by a Toorak merchant from a burned French castle.

Barry Plant Point Cook partner Ray Harb said the Saltwater Coast estate house was “definitely one of the most impressive houses I’ve seen”.

“I think it’s a stunner, it is a very unique home and it’s rare something like this comes along in Point Cook,” Mr Harb said.

The four-bedroom house with polished concrete floors and granite benchtops is for sale with a $1.39m-$1.49m asking price.
