Boutique development Southbay offers potential homeowners a unique opportunity to live in the prized Cheltenham precinct of Pennydale.


Located on Munro Avenue, the new project brought to market by REC and Eton Property Group is perfectly positioned to take advantage of a relaxed coastal lifestyle while remaining close to modern urban amenities.

Near the beach, and surrounded by lush reserves, there is never any shortage of things to do in Cheltenham. For nature lovers, the Whispers and Vistas trail begins at Cheltenham Park, only a 15-minute walk from Southbay’s doorstep. This easy 3km walk showcases the historic sites within the area, winding past the Native Flora and Fauna Reserve, Cheltenham Primary School and Shipston Reserve, and Cheltenham Pioneer Cemetery. There’s no better way to get to know Cheltenham on foot, with plenty of rest stops incorporated along the way.


Golf enthusiasts will appreciate the variety of courses on offer in this bayside community. Two of Victoria’s premier golf courses, the Royal Melbourne Golf Club and the Sandringham Golf Course, lie within an easy 5-minute drive. A little further away, the Kingston Heath and Commonwealth Golf Courses offer further variety.

Running all the way from the Nepean Highway to the beachfront, Bay Road is the central High Street for Cheltenham.

In addition to a thriving café and restaurant scene, Cheltenham is also home to one of Melbourne’s most popular shopping destinations. Southland, only 350 metres from Southbay, provides over 400 retailers and services. From boutique outlets to department store favourites such as Myer and David Jones, shoppers can easily spend the day window browsing before catching a new movie at the cinemas.


This bayside region is celebrated for its host of prestigious private schools with Haileybury, Brighton Grammar, Mentone Grammar and Firbank all within easy reach. Well-resourced local primary schools are complemented by newly opened Beaumaris Secondary College which offers first-class sporting facilities built in partnership with the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

The Southland train station, only 450 metres from Southbay’s door, ensures travel to the city in under half an hour — opening up the recreational and educational opportunities even further. Alternately, the city is accessible via bus (with a bus stop on Bay Road) and the Nepean Highway.

Cheltenham’s well-rounded suburban lifestyle draws all kinds of buyers to its streets. From growing families to downsizers, and city professionals to first homeowners — everyone wants a piece of the Bayside suburb, and Southbay is the ideal opportunity to do so.
