Record prices have been set for homes at two Victorian holiday hamlets.
In Blairgowrie, on the Mornington Peninsula, between Rye and Sorrento, a Melbourne buyer is paying more than $3 million for a double storey property on a 4336 square metre site with coastline and bay view security.
The parcel, 1-3 Head Street, also has subdivision potential.
Near the township’s retail village, the double-storey house contains six-bedrooms, four bathrooms, four living areas, two kitchens, a wine cellar and refrigerated cooling.
Meanwhile in Apollo Bay, at the foothills of the Great Otway National Park, a new price watermark was set when 38 Noel Street sold for $1.48 million.
The buyers, from country Victoria, will enjoy ocean and mountain views from the four bedroom home which includes a three car garage, workshop and lift.
Margaret River limestone walls and messmate floorboards have been used in the home’s construction.
“It’s a record sale for the township of Apollo Bay,” Great Ocean Properties Gary Van Someren said in this realestate.com.au item. “We have had other higher sales but they have been on acreage out of town”.
Interestingly, the last three properties to set a record residential price, in Apollo Bay, have all been in Noel Street (#26 sold for $1.35 million in 2012, while #29 fetched $1.24 million six months ago).
