An Armadale house owned by Melbourne’s horse racing Dibb family is set to snare a place as one of the suburb’s top three most expensive homes.
The five-bedroom house at 13-15 Avalon Rd known as Tudor Lodge is one of the biggest landholdings in the suburb, spanning 2250sq m.
Records show Keith Dibb, owner of 1965 Cox Plate winner Star Affair, bought the home 64 years ago.

Kay & Burton’s Michael Armstrong and Michael Gibson have it listed with a $11-$12 million asking price.
That could put it just clear of the $11.5 million paid for 69 Sutherland Rd, Armadale in 2014, but short of the $13.75 million paid for 10 Flete Ave in 2006.
Over two titles, the sprawling property includes a rare 1930s-built Tudor home, landscaped gardens, a pool with a neighbouring games room and sauna.
“It definitely qualifies as one of the most significant homes in Armadale,” Mr Armstrong said.
“And it’s been a very big part of the owners’ lives, multiple generations of this family have lived in this home.”
Marble fireplaces, grand proportions and a winding driveway mark it as one of the suburb’s most impressive estates.
