Former Essendon midfielder and current Survivor star David Zaharakis is hoping to score a top result for his luxe Lower Plenty pad.
The ex-AFL star is selling the four-bedroom house at 127 Bonds Rd, with swish features including an indoor basketball and squash court, theatre room, a bar in the billiards room and a luxurious pool, with a $3.8m-$4.1m asking range.
Zaharakis purchased the 4061sq m property in 2018 and celebrated milestone events like his 30th birthday there.

Morrison Kleeman Eltham, Greensborough and Doreen director Craig Parker described the indoor sports court as “very cool”.
“For kids growing up in a house like that, it would be great to be friends with them,” Mr Parker said.
“You would be very popular if you had an indoor basketball court.”
A gym, sauna and bathroom are just outside the court, leading to the “nice and private” pool, spa and granite-paved domain with a fire pit.
Multiple outdoor areas include a space with built-in seating, a kitchen, Bose sound system and heating.
“It’s a brilliant home for entertaining,” Mr Parker said.
“You could probably, through the whole property and in all the different living spots, have 100 people there comfortably.”
Perfect for home chefs, the black kitchen has waterfall stone benches, soft-close bespoke cabinetry, Siemens appliances and a butler’s pantry.
A 1000-bottle wine cellar, four-car garage, three bathrooms, formal living area with an open fireplace, roof solar system and fitted laundry add to the appeal.
Golfers will appreciate a gate accessing the neighbouring Heidelberg Golf Club.
Mr Parker said a builder who previously owned the house did a “complete gut and renovation” in 2016.
“David absolutely loves the house but has probably decided to move closer to town,” he added.
Having played 13 seasons with Essendon, Zaharakis is currently starring in Australian Survivor: Heroes v Villains.
One of Zaharakis’ most memorable moments in the AFL came when he kicked a matchwinning goal in the last moments of the 2009 Anzac Day match against Collingwood.
The W.S. Crichton Medal and Anzac Day Medal recipient finished up with Essendon in 2021.
Expressions of interest close at 5pm on February 21.
