THE view across Port Phillip Bay is one of the many reasons a St Leonards couple decided to upgrade.
The couple bought 27 Bluff Rd, St Leonards for $1.35 million to secure a bigger property with a fantastic view.
RT Edgar, Point Lonsdale agent Felix Hakins said there was good interest on the property throughout the campaign with a couple of offers on it.
“They wanted a bigger property with easy maintenance and they will be able to store the boat out the back,” Mr Hakins said.
“And they wanted direct views right across the road from the water.”
The house has two single garages either side of the entry foyer and two bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes and ensuites on the ground floor.
Upstairs is the open-plan living area, main bedroom with ensuite and dressing room and enclosed outdoor entertainment area.
There is also a large garage with gym and home office in the backyard.
The median house price in St Leonards has increased 19.5 per cent in the past year to $540,000, according to CoreLogic.
