A clifftop house touted as having “the best view in Jan Juc” offers buyers a once-in-a-generation chance to lock in spectacular ocean vistas stretching to Cape Schanck.
The sprawling 3925sq m property at 4 Ocean Boulevard is one of only a handful of addresses on the ocean side of the thoroughfare.
The private, two-storey home is on the market for the first time, with price hopes of $5.25 million to $5.75 million.
Great Ocean Properties, Torquay agent Marty Maher said it occupied one of the highest points in the Jan Juc township, above the Steps surf break.
On a clear day there’s views over the foreshore reserve to the Heads and Arthurs Seat across the bay.
“That little pocket is almost like a Portsea clifftop on the west coast but it’s really a pretty special spot,” Mr Maher said.
“The house is 21 years old so it has 21-year-old decor but it’s immaculate and it’s a really solid build.
“The other thing is that it’s a level allotment and you can walk down to Jan Juc village.”
Floor-to-ceiling windows frame ocean views from living rooms and terraces on both levels of the four-bedroom house.
Miele appliances and Corian benchtops feature in the kitchen, while the flexible floorplan includes a formal dining room, potential home office and an ensuite bathroom with a corner spa.
The property also has a separate two-bedroom guesthouse with an open-plan kitchen and living area.
Mr Maher said buyers were surprised by the size of the second dwelling, which was ideal for accommodating visiting family and friends.
He said a chance to secure such a premium location had already generated strong interest for a property in that price bracket.
“We did six back-to-back inspections and it was amazing, we were just out the front listening to the waves,” he said.
“The inquiry has been very positive.”
