‘Billionaires’ row’ peninsula property on market
A breathtaking home on “billionaires’ row” is set to enter the market in an exclusive pocket of the Mornington Peninsula.
The 1.75ha property at 39 Ocean View Ave, Red Hill South, named “Seascape” for its panoramic ocean vista, is expected to sell for about $3.7 million.

Michael Keating’s eponymous director said the current owners planned to move to a smaller communal property but had wonderful memories from the home.
“It really is a spectacular scenery — it’s set amongst billionaires’ row — it is a most spectacular view out across those little islands and out into the bay,” Mr Keating said.
“When they bought it originally I think they never thought they would be leaving there.
“The heart and soul that’s been put into this place … everything is high quality that’s in there — they haven’t skimped on anything.”
Mr Keating said a large Tuscan garden, overlooked by the four-bedroom home’s sizeable windows and an expansive balcony, had been planned for low maintenance.
“All the planting that’s been done has been so well thought out and set out that there’s really not a great deal for you to do, and the thinking behind that was they knew they were getting older,” Mr Keating said.
“The whole spirit of the property catches you as you look down through it — literally from the gate when you go in you have this marvellous, modern — not huge, but very good sized property.”
Mr Keating said glorious views out to the bay were matched by a calming courtyard to the other side.
“The views are operatic, it’s the only way to describe them — the light changes constantly.
These wonderful dawns through to these burning sunsets.”
“Even the side of the house that doesn’t have this spectacular knockout view has a beautiful ambience because it opens out to this magnificent Zen courtyard,” Mr Keating said.
“It really is a case of a picture that tells a thousand words.”
The airy interior features Oak floorboards, stone benchtops and high-end European kitchen appliances, with a study offering the option of a fifth bedroom.
“It’s one of those properties you can lock up and leave and not have a care about because it literally looks after itself,” Mr Keating said.
“It’s not pretentious, it’s not ostentatious — it is everything that anyone with class and decorum could want.”
Mr Keating said the home was suited to Peninsula downsizers, or inner-city residents looking for space to breathe.
“If somebody is scaling down from having a mansion on the Peninsula, or if they’re living in the city and want the perfect acreage with stunning views and Eden-like gardens in about the best position in the Mornington Peninsula, this is it.”
The property is on the market for the first time since 2005, according to CoreLogic data.
