Now might be the right time to snap up that Mornington Peninsula holiday home.
As many as 90 per cent of Sorrento sales are for holiday homes and, with median price growth down to a single digit from double-digit highs of recent years, the coastal hub’s properties are looking even more attractive.
Among the gems on offer is an outstanding property by award-winning architects that will impress with its unique design.
The floorplan and details of the four-bedroom house at 17 Tuckey St are timeless after 11 years, a testament to the vision of BENT Architects to deliver light-filled spaces with outlooks across the coastal panorama.
Nestled on an angle on the 876sq m block set between the bay and the ocean, the double-storey home has a $1.595-$1.745 million price guide.
“Its unusual orientation is to maximise the airflow and it captures the prevailing sea breezes and keeps the home cool,” Hocking Stuart Blairgowrie director Craig Evans said.
“It is a very functional home and the interiors, which have ample natural light, open up well to the outside.”
The home is configured with a north-facing aspect and features two living zones, separate dining and a modern well-equipped kitchen.
Glass doors open to a series of decks and balconies to enjoy the coastal ambience. The elegant parents’ suite has French doors opening to a balcony.
The home is environmentally friendly with solar power, double-glazed windows, ducted heating and airconditioning and automated garden irrigation.
And it is a stroll to Sullivan Bay and the sailing club.
