Surf in your front yard

November 18, 2021 BY

Relax by the fire and watch the waves roll in. INSET: It is only once in a while you encounter a property that has a genuine X factor about it, and 12 Lialeeta Road in Fairhaven has just that.

Fairhaven is at the gateway to some of the best beaches on our coastline with views to match.

Front row properties with immediate beach access are quite rare and highly sought-after, so it’s no wonder Great Ocean Properties listing of 12 Lialeeta Road in Fairhaven is attracting a great deal of attention.

It is only once in a while you encounter a property that has a genuine X factor about it. Something you can’t quite put your finger on but just makes you feel fantastic when you are there.

It is only once in a while you encounter a property that has a genuine X factor about it, and 12 Lialeeta Road Fairhaven has just that.


This is certainly one of those properties – we are not sure if it is the 180-degree view from Aireys Inlet to Lorne, or the fact that you feel like the surf is literally breaking in your front yard with beach access close by, or the natural light that the residence captures from every angle, or a combination of all, regardless, this opportunity is special for several reasons.

Great Ocean Properties director Marty Maher says front row positions like this are very tightly held, and this property has been in the same family since 1947.

“This home sits in one of Fairhaven’s most enviable spots with a short walk to the beach and surf club, or a leisurely stroll into Aireys township,” Mr Maher said.

“With ocean and beach views from most rooms in the home, this property does truly offer the best of seaside living along the iconic Great Ocean Road.”

The current residence was constructed in the mid 1980s and presented in excellent condition.

Boasting four bedrooms, two bathrooms and three living areas with a light coastal palette throughout, you will genuinely feel like you’re on holidays every time you set foot on the property.

Most rooms offer glorious ocean views.


The large open fireplace will provide this beautiful aspect, with a fire burning in the foreground while watching the surf break in the background – all from the comfort of the couch.

The substantial 1350sqm allotment has large lawn areas with a comfortable contour for family use and is quite protected from afternoon sea breezes.

The residence has been cleverly designed to make the most of the view on the ocean side and maximise the natural light of the northern aspect on the inland side.

Access to the beach is just below the property and is walking distance to the Fairhaven Surf Club which is a hive of social activity in the warmer months.

This a property that once you purchase, it may never leave your family again and as you can see by the longevity of the current owner, not presented to the market very often.

The property will be auctioned December 4 at 2pm.
