A luxury beachfront home inspired by holidays at European villas has hit the market with a price tag poised to set a new record for Ocean Grove.
The front row home with uninterrupted ocean views from Point Lonsdale to the Barwon Heads Bluff is listed with hopes of $6.7m to $7.37m.
Spanning three expansive levels, the six-bedroom house at 58-60 Hodgson Street has multiple living zones, an underground eight-car garage, swimming pool, gym, temperature-controlled cellar and a large terrace.
RT Edgar, Barwon Heads agent Candace Smith said the vendors were inspired by their European travels when building the house eight years ago.
They spared no expensive importing tiles and fittings to recreate the feel of a “wow factor” Italian villa.
She said all you could hear was the sound of the ocean when standing on the terrace overlooking the sea.
“Obviously the location is absolutely incredible and the beauty of it is that you can’t be built out,” Ms Smith said.
“You are getting uninterrupted view to Point Lonsdale and The Bluff.
“It’s three levels and on each level there is accommodation and kitchenettes so you can actually have three families in there at the same time and not see each other.
“The current owner has absolutely loved it and has hosted many parties and family events there.”
Marble tiling and waterfall benchtops, integrated appliances and European oak floorings feature inside the house.
The central level is made for entertaining with an open-plan kitchen, dining and living room offering views across the terrace to the sea, while a second loungeroom overlooks the pool.
Upstairs the main bedroom suite has its own balcony, plus a living space and study.
The ground floor has another self-contained living space with a kitchenette, four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a laundry, home gym and the garage.
Another modern house less than a block away at 91 Orton Street became Ocean Grove’s most expensive sale when it traded for $6.3m in March last year.
Expressions of interest for Hodgson Street close for on December 21.
