A Rosebud beach box is offering buyers the chance to own an exclusive piece of the foreshore.
F116 Beach Box is about 7.5m x 4m in size and is listed for private sale for $130,000.
The little gem is on the market for a much more desirable price point than the seaside offerings in the blue-chip suburb of Portsea, where a boat shed sold for more than $900,000 in November 2018.
The colourful weatherboard sea-frontage shack is listed with Barry Plant director, Craig Leo.
“It is one of the larger beach boxes in the area and sits directly opposite central Rosebud, in an ideal location,” Mr Leo said.
“It is fitted out with a vanity room, a little kitchen and is very secure.”
The seaside oasis is just off Jetty Road, across the road from Woolworths, the pub and all the favourite cafes and shops.
The bathing box has already drawn a great amount of interest and a few offers from local families, investors and holiday homeowners.
Mr Leo said the market is still booming as Melbourne buyers flock to the sea for a lifestyle change.
“The number of properties for sale is gradually increasing, we have had a really good month of acquiring new homes for sale,” Mr Leo said.
“Confidence is returning to the market as people are appreciating now there is some social proof of a hot market and they are taking advantage of that.”
Recent data by realestate.com.au shows in the 12 months to February 2021, five out of 10 suburbs from the Mornington Peninsula, are the most in demand in Victoria. The suburbs include Mt Martha, Frankston, Mt Eliza, Mornington and Rye.
Demand has shifted to outer city markets over the past year as people are much more interested in lifestyle and space, according to director of economic research at realestate.com.au Cameron Kusher.
“COVID and a new work-from-home lifestyle have led to more people looking for lifestyle properties further away from big cities,” Mr Kusher said.
