Iconic Mad Max house up for sale in Victoria

One of Victoria's most-famous beach houses, which holds a special place in Australian movie history, has been listed for sale for an eye-water $11 million.

Once just a shack on the sand dunes of Fairhaven beach, the property is known as hideout from the original road warrior Mad Max.

Four decades later and the house isn't a shack anymore.

In 2000, the iconic property was bought by Boost Juice founder Janine Allis for $1.1 million before an enormous renovation.

The house now includes five bedrooms, six bathrooms, a pool, and uninterrupted views on 3000 square metres surrounded by crown land.

For locals, it's an exclamation point on a year that's seen surf coast prices jump 13 per cent.

"The market down here's been going berserk anyway, so that might just top it out i think," Agent Marty Maher said.

The sale is expected to attract a few die hard fans.

"When you look at the movie, this is the actual spot they sat in. It's in the movie a lot," she said.

Before Bruce Willis and Arnie captured our hearts - it was <i>Mad Max</i> who held the post-apocalyptic action crown! It was the role that made Mel Gibson famous, and spawned a million tiny faux-leather biker costumes come Halloween.<br/>

To top it off, the house has a second film credit with a clear view to a piece of legendary Aussie TV with views of the lighthouse from Round the Twist — another nudge towards a record-breaking price when offers close in mid-April.

"We have some beautiful properties down here but this one is by far the best," Ms Maher said.

"To get total privacy, this close to the beach... that's the rarest combination on the whole coast of Victoria."
