It’s one of the most renowned beach houses in the country and was also featured in one of Australia’s most iconic films. Now, Max’s Beach House could be yours – if have $11 million to spare.
One of only two homes on the ocean side of the small coastal village of Fairhaven, on Victoria’s Great Ocean Road, Max’s Beach House occupies a 3008sq m allotment on the primary dune above a 6km stretch of beach.
In addition to having one of the most impressive and enviable views of any beach house in Australia, the five-bedroom, six-bathroom house was also one of the locations where George Miller’s 1979 cult classic Mad Max, starring Mel Gibson, was filmed.
Back then, as film aficionados will know, 310 Great Ocean Road was a mere shack, but after being purchased by Boost Juice founder Janice Allis for $1.1 million in 2000, it underwent extensive renovations.
The house that now occupies the same location features spacious open-plan living with floor-to-ceiling glazing and a large outdoor entertaining area with sweeping ocean vistas.
The home’s master suite, which includes a dressing room and ensuite, offers impressive views from its private balcony, while three of the additional bedrooms have ensuites, and there is also a four-bed bunk room.
To top it off, the residence also features a media room, an extensive games room with a kitchenette, and an elevated private pool.
Despite its high-profile location, the property offers a rare combination of stunning views, immediate beach access and total privacy.
The property also features panoramic views that include looking directly along the top of the dune at the historic Split Point Lighthouse, which features in the ABC-TV program Round the Twist, and is only 90 minutes from the Melbourne CBD,
The sale is being handled by Great Ocean Properties, with a price guide of between $10,800,000 and $11,800,000.
Inspections are strictly by appointment only and offers close in mid-April.
