Meet Bryony and Max! Bryony and Max came to Australia from the UK to live the Australian dream.

Search Location: Phillip Island, VIC
Budget: $350 -$400k

The Brief:
They want a perfect garden more than a perfect house. They like character over modern and they want a beach house that is a proper beach house. Space for friends to come and stay, particularly friends from the UK is really important so 2 to 3 bedrooms with a nice open plan kitchen for their 'hobby' of entertaining would be ideal. Being as close to the beach as possible would be great because they love to wander. They’re first home buyers who want to raise a family and keep their dogs in the Aussie lifestyle they fantasized about when they emigrated.

Area Overview:
Phillip Island is an island about 140 km south-southeast of Melbourne connected to the mainland by a concrete bridge to San Remo. Originally a sealers colony and farming community the island became internationally known as the home of Australian motor sports and its most famous residents – penguins. The island is a popular holiday destination with three and a half million visitors every year. From wetlands to nature parks to remote wild beaches the area has huge appeal for tourists. For locals it offers a cool and relaxed beach culture away from busy urban hustle and bustle.
