Elwood: Bali Villa-like Wave St House For Sale
You’d be forgiven for thinking this pad was a bit closer to the equator than Melbourne’s inner suburbs.
Make no mistake, you are not looking for a villa in Bali.
This tropical tempter is here in suburban Melbourne, and it’s up for grabs with a price tag of $3.3-3.4 million for its Feb. 5 auction.
The grounds at 28 Wave St, Elwood, resemble a private resort.
A Balinese-style cabana is suspended above a heated saltwater pool, which is decorated with a 10m water feature, flanked by a wooden deck and shaded by parasols and established palm trees .

And the three-bedroom one-story home continues the theme, especially with walls of windows that bring the lush grounds and lots of light inside.
“You’re walking from the streets of Elwood straight into another part of the world,” Nick Johnstone Brighton’s agent Jonty Wells said.
“The back faces north, so whether you’re having pina coladas or red cordial with the kids, you’ll enjoy the sun.
“And the house is really open and bright – it’s not just the backyard, the Bali theme runs through the property.”
One of the highlights of the courtyard was the thatched-roof hut, which Mr Wells said vendors had named “the hut of truth”.
It was because “when they had dinner parties there, they would have a few drinks and the truth would start to come out”.
Inside, the open plan living, dining and kitchen area impresses with a vaulted beamed ceiling.
The kitchen also offers a marble island and high-end Bosch and Gaggenau appliances.
The master bedroom exudes hotel-style luxury, with a walk-in closet leading to a spa room and direct access to a terrace.
Tall fences flank the private yard, while the beach is within walking distance for those who wish to enjoy their vacation outside the property boundaries.
