A GRAND beauty in Sandringham’s coveted seaside pocket could soon set a new price record for the exclusive suburb.
The spectacular family home on an expansive block at 54-56 Sims St will push past the suburb’s residential sales record if it sells within its price guide of $5.5-$5.9 million.
An Edwardian gem just three blocks away at 55 Abbott St has held top spot since October last year, when it sold for $5.05 million.

Hocking Stuart agent Jenny Dwyer said the Sims St property had received a lot of interest.
“It’s in the revered Poet’s Corner of Sandringham and on an 1802sq m block,” she said.
“It’s unusual to have a piece of land this size come onto the market.”
A tennis court is included on the grounds.
The five-bedroom home comes with $5.5-$5.9 million price hopes.
Ms Dwyer said owner-occupiers were mostly interested in the Sims St address.
“We’ve had a lot of families looking for a long-term home come through,” she said.
“Because of the street’s reputation and its great location, we’ve had people from all over Melbourne come to inspect.”
Owner-occupiers have been interested in the Sims St address.
The property is about 1802sq m.
Ms Dwyer said exclusive homes took longer to sell, which was why it had been on the market for 93 days.
The spectacular property has a tennis court, swimming pool and six large entertainment rooms indoors.
Another property that has previously held a Sandringham price record is also on the market.
A penthouse at 31/49-51 Bay Rd was once Sandringham’s most expensive apartment.
The penthouse boasts incredible views of the bay.
The three-bedroom apartment 31/49-51 Bay Rd offers some of the best views in Bayside, and has a suggested selling price of $3.45 million.
It held Sandringham’s apartment price record when it sold for $3.3 million in June 2015, according to CoreLogic data.
But the neighbouring apartment at 32/49-51 Bay Rd snatched top spot when it sold for $3.85 million in March last year.

Devlin’s Trudy Biggin said the apartment offered uninterrupted views from almost every room.
“It’s three storeys high on the top of Sandringham Hill, so nothing will ever be built taller than that around here,” she said.
“It feels very private and the light which shines into the house is incredible.”
The luxury apartment has two outdoor entertainment areas, taking in views of the bay, the You Yangs, Williamstown, the city and the Dandenong Ranges.
