Ul­ti­mate pool party pads

These pres­tige prop­er­ties are mak­ing a splash on the mar­ket

Geelong Advertiser - - NEWS - TESSA HAY­WARD

DIVE into some of the best prop­er­ties with swim­ming pools across the Gee­long re­gion as the tem­per­a­ture is set to hit 30C for most of this week.

There is no bet­ter way to cool down on a hot day than to jump into the wa­ter, and these lux­ury prop­er­ties with pools on the mar­ket could make this a re­al­ity.

RT Edgar, Ocean Grove agent Brock Grainger said a swim­ming pool added value to a prop­erty.

“When you are look­ing at pres­tige prop­er­ties it is al­most a given these days, any­thing over $1 mil­lion and peo­ple are look­ing for a pool,” Mr Grainger said.

“A lot of peo­ple are mov­ing for the whole change of life­style and a pool adds that life­style into the mix.”

How­ever, he said it had to be the right prop­erty and price point for it to add value.

“If you are putting a pool in a new es­tate, it is not nec­es­sar­ily what the mar­ket is after but cer­tainly in the pres­tige prop­er­ties,” he said.

Here are five prop­er­ties on the mar­ket that will make a splash. 148 ORTON ST, OCEAN GROVE

This lux­ury prop­erty has the best of both worlds with the house cen­tred around an invit­ing swim­ming pool, while just over the sand dunes is a surf beach.

The pri­vate and peace­ful Ba­li­nese re­sort-style prop­erty is crafted from rich tim­bers and Mt Gam­bier lime­stone.

The house de­sign is based on a square, with the swim­ming pool and out­door en­ter­tain­ment area in the mid­dle and the house with six bed­rooms, four liv­ing spa­ces and two dou­ble garages wrap­ping around it.
