8 Foord Lane, Dromana has set a house price record.

A clifftop property on top of Anthony’s Nose has set a house price record in Dromana.

The stunning 8 Foord Lane home on 991sq m fetched $3.473 million, a record for a house on a non-acreage block.

The price record was a reflection of the home’s coveted position just a stroll to the water and the quality of the architect-designed build, One Agency Peninsula director Steve Walsh said.

It captures stunning vistas.

The dining and family living flows out to the balcony.

“It has uninterrupted water views and offers a close connection to the water and also access to the shops,” Mr Walsh said.

He noted that Dromana was becoming an alternative for buyers who wanted to avoid the bottleneck and traffic further down the peninsula in Portsea and Sorrento.

“The house might have sold for a record price but is cheaper than properties in Portsea and Sorrento,” Mr Walsh added.

The result was just below the $3.5-$3.75 million price guide.

Mr Walsh noted several beach shacks along Foord Lane had fetched seven-figure sums with vacant land now priced well above $1 million.

The home is in immaculate condition.

He said 8 Foord Lane sold to a buyer from outside the area and had attracted strong interest.

The spot at the Dromana-McCrae border was named Anthony’s Nose by Charles La Trobe — the first lieutenant governor in charge of the colony of Victoria — for its resemblance to a similar feature on the Hudson River in New York.

Architect Ian Perkins designed the house to maximise the clifftop location in 2012, with the split-level design offering views from almost every room.

You can enjoy water views from the pool as well.

The main entry leads to the upper level where the living, dining and kitchen are located, together with a large balcony and the swimming pool.

The previous record house price was $2.325 million, set in 2010 by 7 Clifftop Court, a five-bedroom property on 1184sq m.

Last year, a vineyard on 11.3ha at 97 Harrisons Rd sold for above $10 million to be the highest residential sale in Dromana.
