McGrath Estate Agents, Geelong, 5223 2040. Jim Cross, 0408 305 615 Private sale
DUBBED one of Geelong’s best family homes, this 1924 stunner is looking for just its fourth owner since it was built. McGrath, Geelong, agent Jim Cross said the five-bedroom home boasted the regional city’s “most prestigious ... and tightly held waterfront location”, overlooking Eastern Beach. Set on 1361sq m, the home has been renovated and extended by its current owners but retains its period charm. Its manicured gardens make people stop and stare, and its wide, north-facing frontage provides most living areas with bay views. McGrath recently opened its Geelong office, with executive director John McGrath tipping demand in the region would continue to grow.
