Boost Juice founder Janine Allis’s beachfront Fairhaven weekender is back on the market, giving buyers another chance to land of piece of Australian film history.
The landmark Max’s Beach House, which featured in the 1979 Mad Max movie, has been listed with slightly reduced price hopes of $10 million-$10.5 million.
It was originally offered for sale for $10.8 million-$11.8 million during a short campaign earlier this year.
Allis and her family have transformed the former beach shack at 310 Great Ocean Rd into a luxury tri-level hideaway in the dunes above Fairhaven beach.
It’s one of only two homes on the ocean side of the tourist drive with steps down to the sand.
Great Ocean Properties, Aireys Inlet agent Marty Maher said the coastal market had “gone crazy” on the back of repeated lockdowns and the vendors hoped to tap into that momentum.
“Our strategy there was that a lot of people are at home and they are thinking about lifestyle,” Mr Maher said.
“We thought it might be a good time to get it back on and then the whole lockdown happened.”
While in-person inspections might be on hold for now, he expects buyers to again make a beeline for the Surf Coast once Victoria’s restrictions ease.
He said demand had surged over the past 12 months as people took advantage of the shift to working from home.
Almost 40 contracts of sale have gone out for a block of land recently listed in Anglesea ahead of a planned Zoom auction, highlighting the level of interest in the area.
“There has been a lot of changing addressing the last 12 months, people changing their permanent home,” Mr Maher said.
Allis described her family’s five-bedroom, six-bathroom Fairhaven retreat as a “sanity saver” over the past 20 years.
Timber and concrete finishes evoke a natural finish at the luxury home on a private 3008sq m block bounded by Crown land on three sides.
Floor-to-ceiling windows frame impressive ocean views from the open-plan living zone that links to an outdoor entertainment area.
There’s also a media room, games room and a bunk room — a holiday house staple no matter your budget — as well as a swimming pool and spa for sand-free summer swims.
Allis said earlier this year she was selling with a heavy heart as her family planned to relocate to Sydney’s northern beaches.
