5 Reasons to Build in Bayside Melbourne

After two years of disruption caused by the pandemic, many Melburnians are looking to change their living situation. Whether it’s moving from the bustling inner city to regional pockets of the state, or experiencing city life for the first time, people are gravitating towards change, looking for new experiences, adventures and scenery.

But change doesn’t have to mean choosing between the city and the coast. You can experience all the benefits of both when you move to the idyllic Bayside area. Located in Melbourne’s southeast, the Bayside region includes a number of suburbs along Port Phillip Bay like Sandringham, Brighton, Beaumaris, Hampton and Cheltenham. With plenty of beautiful beaches and community events, it’s one of the most sought-after locations to build a remarkable Melbourne home.

  1. Proximity to the CBD

Just a little over 30 minutes from the city centre by car, and with a range of excellent public transport options, Bayside Melbourne offers the best of both worlds. It’s the perfect spot for those who need easy access to the CBD and inner suburbs, but also want to enjoy the advantages of a laidback lifestyle.

2. The scenery and coastal wonders

We can’t mention Bayside without discussing the beautiful coastline. Perfect during Melbourne’s hot, summer months, these world-class beaches offer soft sand and beautiful clear waters to go for a swim, kayak, windsurf or fish. Whatever your water sport of choice, Bayside delivers.

3. Bigger blocks

The further out from the city you go, the larger the blocks become – this is one of the major draw cards to the Bayside region. While those building or renovating homes in the inner city may have to compromise on the size of their home or yard space, Baysiders can have it all! Whether it’s an in-ground pool, alfresco entertaining space, play area for the kids or yard space for the dogs, bigger blocks mean a more comfortable and spacious way of life.

4. Family-orientated

With a wealth of open space and outdoor activities on offer, as well as a tight-knit community and a range of excellent schools, the Bayside area is perfect for families. Those with young kids can enjoy weekends on the beach building sandcastles and chasing waves, while older families will love the selection of cafes, restaurants and bars. There are also a number of dog friendly beaches in the Bayside area, for the four-legged members of the family.

5. Dining and entertainment options

Foodies will love the array of dining options available in Bayside Melbourne. From cafes and restaurants, to bars, pubs and fine dining establishments, the region absolutely upholds Melbourne’s reputation for excellent food.

For entertainment-lovers, the area also boasts a number of cinemas, live music venues, sports grounds and entertainment centres so there’s never a shortage of weeknight or weekend activities.
