A sprawling two-story beach hut, among the largest along the Mornington Peninsula, has been put up for sale. Situated snugly along Hawker Beach in Mount Martha, this beachfront property has been owned by the same family since the 1970s and is now listed with hopes of fetching $500,000.

According to Darren Sadler, Director of Woodards Real Estate Dromana, this beach hut is a rarity in Victoria, being one of the few double-story beachfront properties available. He emphasized its unique features, mentioning that it not only stands on stilts but also offers proper boat storage underneath.

Nestled in privacy and seclusion, this property boasts a prime location for fishing, with plenty of opportunities for catching calamari and whiting off the nearby rocks. Additionally, it’s conveniently located near an 80-meter boat ramp, perfect for launching kayaks.

The beach hut includes a sink for cleaning fish and a portable water tank, adding to its functionality. Sadler noted that while the vendors are reluctantly selling due to underuse, this property stands out as something truly unique.

With recent sales in the area surpassing $600,000, beachfront properties like this one are increasingly seen as valuable investments. This trend is underscored by the recent sale of a Blairgowrie boat shed for $900,000 and a Portsea beach hut fetching close to $950,000, indicating a steady rise in beachfront property values.
