Victoria’s beachside hot spots that buyers with cash to splash are clamoring to live in have been revealed in exclusive new PropTrack data.
Flinders and Portsea, and in regional Victoria, Lorne, Point Lonsdale and Ocean Grove are the suburbs with the priciest seaside properties on average. However, there are plenty of other hidden gem suburbs where beach houses may not cost you an arm or a leg either.
Closer to Melbourne, Kim and David Easterbrook and their young family love walking to the beach almost daily.
The couple are selling their sleek four-bedroom home at 92 Ruskin st — which they bought off Paul Roos and his wife Tami in 2016 — with price jumps of $4.4m-$4.6m.
“We walk to the beach pretty much every day down Elwood Canal right up to Elwood Beach. It’s walking distance if you want to go for a swim,” Ms. Easterbrook said.
“We’re moving to another place just as close to the beach because we love it so much; we’re staying around here and not moving too far away.”
The couple, who run Elite Buyer Agents and Boutique Buyer Agents, just welcomed newborn Chloe to the family, joining daughter Lucy, 3, and dog Molly.
Ms Easterbrook said it was a safe area and “one of the best pockets of Elwood”.
The Tim Spicer Architects-designed house, one of the best on the market, is for private sale through Chisholm & Gamon Elwood director Sam Gamon.
A striking facade makes an immediate impression, with a run of skylights letting plenty of natural light shine through the stylish interiors.
A lap pool at the rear completes the enticing summer package.
We’ve also uncovered other coastal properties around the state that might be for you.
