To buy into the area, the av­er­age sale price is about $433,000. “You would be look­ing at more than $500,000 for a four-bed­room, two-bath­room prop­erty on at least 500 square me­tres of land,” says Beth Strat­fold, of Har­courts South Coast. Homes are cer­tainly in­creas­ing in value, with a new record set re­cently for a water­front res­i­dence that sold for $3.15 mil­lion. Many in­ner streets be­long to the his­toric con­ser­va­tion zone to pre­serve the unique­ness of the town and there’s plenty of ac­tiv­ity in retail: “There are a num­ber of up­mar­ket home­wares stores, cafes and gourmet food shops; Port Elliot con­tin­ues to en­joy its rep­u­ta­tion as a tightly held, ex­clu­sive town on the south coast,” says Beth.
