Our Backyard – Aireys Inlet

Many of you may not be aware that Aireys Inlet actually has two junior football teams.

The Aireys Inlet Eels consists of under 10’s and under 12’s, which next season will be changed to under 11’s and under 13’s.

Locals were brimming with pride after last week’s AFL Rookie Draft in which our first Eels player was drafted.  Our area is currently well represented with Patrick Dangerfield and Jack Steven, both being … Continue Reading »

Welcome to summer!

‘I love a sunburnt country,

A land of sweeping plains,

Of ragged mountain ranges,

Of droughts and flooding rains’

How appropriate!

After a scorching end to spring, the first day of summer is forecast to bring a summer’s worth of rain in the season’s first three days.

It is climate change or was it the same in the early 1900’s when Dorothea Mackellar wrote this widely known poem?

Either way, it’s going to be wet … Continue Reading »

Welcome to Aireys Inlet

As I returned from my early morning bike ride along the magnificent Great Ocean Road this morning, I drank one litre of water, and then prepared my first of two coffees for the morning.

How ironic I thought?  Here I am out exercising and then as soon as I get home I take a so called drug, which is meant to be bad for you, even though it … Continue Reading »

Welcome to Aireys Inlet

I read with interest today an article about Australian lifespans.

Written in the Sydney Morning Herald a century and a half ago, a newborn colonist was given just 45.6 years.  One published today would give that newborn boy 80.4 years and a newborn girl 84.6.

The figures depend on which electorate you live in, whether or not you had higher education and of course higher income.

From the 1950’s through … Continue Reading »

Welcome to Aireys Inlet

The auction at 15 Brent Avenue, Aireys Inlet on Saturday was a successful result for the vendors.

The property sold under the hammer for $1,050,000 which was $150,000 above the reserve price.  A great result for the vendors.

Whilst this sale was terrific result, it has further reduced the number of houses for sale in Aireys Inlet which is at a record low.

Another off market listing this week in … Continue Reading »

Welcome to Aireys Inlet

This classic piece of Australian modernist architecture is being sold by the family of one of Australia’s best known architects of the modernist movement, Neil Everist, of McGlashan and Everist.

The property has generated lots of interest throughout the campaign and we are expecting a good attendance at the auction and hopefully a … Continue Reading »

Welcome to Aireys Inlet

I have made a number of references in recent blogs to off market sales that we have achieved. Only last week we sold another in the area for a figure in excess of $2M in the Fairhaven/Moggs Creek area.

I also read with interest an article in the ‘Weekend Australian’ on Saturday, which claimed that:

“In areas where demand remains high and stock levels at historic lows, career agents … Continue Reading »

Land-Now A Truly Rare Find

Over the past few years there has been a good supply of land available through Aireys and Fairhaven with more limited supply further down the beach at Moggs Creek and Eastern View. The Narani Way Estate in Fairhaven has held the bulk of new land allotments for sale in the area with a total of 47 allotments. Narani Way is made up of … Continue Reading »
