90 minutes from Melbourne’s CBD, the 5 bedroom by 6 bathroom property is located on a dune above Fairhaven Beach, which stretches for six kilometres.

Inside, there is a luxurious open plan living area with floor to ceiling glazing.

The master suite has a private balcony with ocean views along with a dressing room and en-suite. Each of the three other bedrooms features an ensuite with another four-bed bunkroom utilising a fifth bathroom.

The outside area features a private pool and excluding one side, the 3,008sqm property is surrounded by crown land.

Along with immediate access to the beach, the house also has views of the Split Point Lighthouse – most notably, this was the lighthouse used in the ‘Around the Twist’ TV series from the 1990s.

The property is being listed by Marty Maher and Mim Atkinson of Great Ocean Properties.

The agents say the house is located on “arguably the best position on the west coast of Victoria”, being one of only two houses on the ocean side of the Fairhaven portion of the Great Ocean Road.

The beach shack is named ‘Max’s Beach House’ by locals after part of the original 1979 Mad Max movie was filmed there.

The property has been substantially renovated since the relatively baby-faced Mel Gibson was filmed running around the property.

Boost Juice founder and CEO, Janine Allis, purchased the property in 2000 for $1.1 million, after her family had been renting it for the previous five years.

Offers are required by the 19th of April with a current sale guide between $10.8 million and $11.8 million.
