1A Elm Court is truly a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to secure the last parcel of land in Mount Eliza’s ‘golden triangle’ where this prestigious property lies only metres from the water’s edge with private beach access to Davey’s Bay Beach and Yacht Club (circa 1909).
Set on a generous 1,200sqm of prized Mornington Peninsula land, the last of its type in the area, this property presents a rare opportunity to build your ultimate dream home in an established high-end residential area with potential views across to the bay and over to the Melbourne skyline.
Historically Mount Eliza traces its name back to 1836 when Captain William Hobson surveyed Port Phillip Bay and named the area after his wife Eliza Elliott. He also named Mt Martha after Martha Smythe, the wife of Port Phillip’s first police magistrate, Captain William Lonsdale.
Occupying a north facing position in a prestigious, quiet, cul-de-sac and set amid a tightly held enclave, this property is derived from the subdivision of 1 Elm Court.
It comes complete with pre-approval for a generously proportioned two storey mansion.
With a host of gorgeous beaches and lush, green woodlands teaming with wildlife, the area has become the go-to destination for progressive Melbournian families seeking to immerse themselves in the unique Mediterranean village lifestyle Mt Eliza provides.
Champion tennis player Sir Norman Everard Brooks, who won Wimbledon in 1907, owned this property in 1951 and enjoyed the attributes of Mount Eliza with his wife Mabel Balcom Brooks. It was also during this period that Hollywood glamour came to Mt Eliza when, in 1959, movie stars Fred Astaire, Gregory Peck and Ava Gardner arrived in town to shoot American post-apocalyptic science fiction film ‘On the Beach’.
In real estate terms the Golden Mile of Mount Eliza remains a very tightly held and valuable enclave largely due to the fact it figures prominently in shaping a distinctive prominent rise of protruding coastline of the Mornington Peninsula. Most notably the last sale in Elm Court was the year 2000.
Offering attractive lifestyle options with wide open spaces, stunning parklands, cosmopolitan village shopping and eateries, it is just a 45-minute drive from the Victorian capital’s thriving CBD. With a host of private and public schools land amenities located nearby, 1A Elm Court offers the perfect opportunity to get a taste of the magnificent Mount Eliza magic that others secretly desire.
