Somerville is an expanding township with a population nearing 12000.  3 primary schools, 2 secondary colleges a healthy sporting environment, medical facilities, police station and plenty of opportunity. A large shopping hub with all the major supermarket brands represented services clientele from Tyabb, Hastings, Moorooduc and Baxter. The Somerville Tavern is a well known local watering hole and Ingham’s have a large factory north of the town, employing a percentage of the population. 

The town is a clever mix of residential and larger properties with house prices varying considerably.  The median price of $590,000 makes it an attractive proposition for young families, first home buyers as well as investors. You’ll  find grand dwellings on acreage in the older parts that maintain a true country atmosphere along with some amazing premium homesteads.  Only last month a residential lifestyle home successfully sold in excess of $4,000,000 setting a new benchmark for this underrated peninsula locale. 

132 Eramosa Road East Somerville is another example of country living albeit with it’s quirky additions.  The primary residence is a Circa 1915 classic country manor, consisting of 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a beautiful country kitchen, open fire places, a cellar, expansive decking, an undercover alfresco area fitted with a pizza oven.  The homes internal fittings take you back in time when family was family and community was as important as oxygen.

The property is set on 5 acres. Cottage gardens surround the home and the land holding is perfect for the hobbyist; in this instance the hobby is cars.   A huge garage; a man shed; that needs to be seen to be understood; large enough for 15 cars is host to its own diner cart, a scene right out of an episode of Happy Days.  Further onto the property sits one of the prettiest studio accommodations you’ll find; perfect for teenagers, in laws or a commercial enterprise. The owners here have catered to masculine and the feminine with sensitivity and equality; opening the property to all who aspire to live here.

 With an asking price of $2,800,000 – $3,000,000 it is a once in lifetime opportunity to own a piece of peninsula history that has real personality.  

Marketed by Derek Lea Real Estate; a member of the EVIEW group, the property is available for inspection by appointment.  Interest is coming from locals as well as out of town and with premium property in Somerville becoming a savvy buy for both lifestyle and capital growth its one to put on your list.
