AN original beach shack across the road from the water in Queenscliff has just hit the market for the first time in nearly 100 years.
Generations of the same family have enjoyed the classic two-bedroom cottage at 29 Swanston St, but it is time for the next chapter with the property being listed for sale for $2.4 million to $2.6 million.

Fletchers, Queenscliff agent Charles Caldwell said it was a blank canvas and would most likely be knocked down.
“The beach shack is in a blue chip location, you could develop and put two townhouses on it (subject to council approval) or build a dream home,” Mr Caldwell said.

Property Expert Andrew Winter shares a few insights on Australian real estate.
The original cottage has two bedrooms, a loungeroom, kitchen, bathroom, laundry and sunroom on 635sq m of land.
The corner allotment is just metres from ‘Cottage Beach’ and there is potential to build something spectacular to take in the view across Port Phillip Bay to the Heads.
It joins two other properties for sale in that strip including 14 The Esplanade — a three-storey house for sale for $3.975 million through Kerleys and 68 Stevens St — a circa 1882 property named Maytone for sale through Fletchers for $3.75 million to $3.95 million.
