30 mins to CBD, area has access to amazing beaches and Australia's best golf courses.
Where is it?
Besides being a beautiful house we love this place because of its location. We are only 800m (5 mins walk) from friendly Black Rock village and beach with its many restaurants and coffee shops plus essential local baker, butcher and grocery stores. It gets more lively at weekends due to local beaches, coast walking path and Beach Road cyclists as well as quality eating.
And the centre of Melbourne is a 20 min drive or, even better, 20 mins by train from nearby Sandringham station. We prefer to use the train knowing we can take advantage of the theatre, galleries, history and restaurants of Melbourne - it is a cultural cosmopolitan city - and also have a relaxing drink.
Another bonus is that, if you are a golfer, we are walking distance to the Royal Melbourne and close to a number of other well known sandbelt golf courses
Note - the beaches here are safe bay beaches not surf beaches. The surf is an hour away. So this is not Australian surf beach holiday. The location however provides the best of both worlds - bayside beach location with easy access to the city.
