Beachside pads making waves on Bayside auction market
Terrific townhouses and a sought-after corner block will go to auction just steps from Melbourne’s beaches this weekend.
Buyers are expected to dive back into the Bayside market as some suburbs kick off their first auctions of the year.
Competitive bidding is expected for a contemporary Beaumaris townhouse at 3/4 Reserve Rd, which has a $1.65-$1.75 million price guide.

“We always had one interested buyer and we considered selling it to them ahead of schedule,” Buxton Sandringham agent Scott Hamilton said.
“But then we got a text message from another lady saying she was also serious about bidding, so we’re going to go ahead with the auction.”
The vendors were leaving the four-year-old property and moving to Warrandyte for a tree-change, he added.
Further along the bay, another luxury townhouse at 6/693 Nepean Highway, Carrum will also test the auction market.
The three-bedroom pad boasts undisturbed views to the water and has a $1.45-$1.595 million price guide.
Buxton Chelsea’s Daniel Wright said the designer townhouse felt like a holiday retreat.
“It was one of Carrum’s first beachfront developments, and it’s got a real coastal feel and beautiful gardens,” Mr Wright said.
“It has an incredible outlook to a very private beach and it almost feels like you’re viewing a national park”
In Aspendale, multiple buyers are expected to vie for the keys to a house around the corner from the bay.
Nick Johnstone agent Russ Enticott said he was preparing for a hot auction on the Art Deco home at 76 Nepean Highway.
“It’s 60 steps from the beautiful beach and on a corner block, which has 636sq m of land,” he said.
“We’ve had some parties looking to renovate the classic brick home, others looking to build their dream house and some looking to subdivide and develop.”
The house was built by the vendors and is being sold for the first time in its history with a $1.15 million-$1.265 million price guide.
