Family sees beauty in knockout location of 1950s beach house
AN original 1950s beach shack just three doors down from Point Roadknight front beach has sold for $1.825 million.
The three-bedroom house on a 1394sq m block with two titles has been in the hands of the current owner for 40 years.
Great Ocean Road, Anglesea agent Kellie Saddington said with the vendor’s 85th birthday approaching, the time had come to move closer to town.

Ms Saddington said the new owners of 46-48 Eight Avenue, Anglesea were a family from Melbourne who were looking forward to enjoying the ultimate beachside holiday location.
She said they had no plans to do anything to the house as the huge block was a big part of the appeal.
“The family that bought it have a couple of kids so they are super excited able being able to put a board under their arm and walk to the beach,” she said.
“We have had a lot of developers and people who wanted to bulldoze it and build a big mansion but this family is just going to nestle in and enjoy it.”
The house is in pretty much original condition, save for an extra living room that was added to back in the 1970s.
There are timber-lined walls in the central kitchen/meals area and front living room, while moonah trees add to the scenery outside.
