Retirees join coastal club with million-dollar home beside Ocean Grove golf club

This Ocean Grove property is less than 200m to the banks of the Barwon River.

Relocating retirees have found their dream lifestyle location next door to the Ocean Grove Golf Club and just moments from the Barwon River.

The Melbourne couple will be able to enjoy sunsets over the river after they paid $1.015 million for a modern four-bedroom house at 21 Guthridge St.

Ocean Grove Real Estate agent Jacob Platt said the pair weren’t golfers themselves but had family members that liked to hit the course.

This Ocean Grove property has the golf club and Barwon River walks on its doorstep.

“They are a retired couple transitioning down to the coast, obviously for the lifestyle,” Mr Platt said.

“It was something relatively new so the maintenance is low.”

The two-storey house is on a 322sq m block and offers views over the golf course and the river.

The main open-plan kitchen, dining and living room on the first floor links to a large covered balcony and there’s a second outdoor entertainment area off the rumpus room downstairs.

The modern build appealed to the buyers.

The property is just 160m from the Barwon River, with walking trails, fishing spots and a boat ramp at the end of the street.

Mr Platt said crowds had coastal open homes had continued to increase each week since bans were lifted last month.

“We are finding at the moment our lower base properties are selling quite well and our top end properties are too,” he said.
