It’s been called Australia’s best beach house, and for a cool $5 million it could be yours.

The sprawling property is perched on 12-acres of land, on top of a cliff overlooking Kangaroo Island’s pristine waters in South Australia.

And if that’s not enough, it even comes with your own 365-metre private beach.

It has six bedrooms, multiple living spaces and two cellars.

Plummeting prices in Australia’s property prices could mean those once-out-of-reach beach and waterfront properties such as this one are suddenly in your budget.

In January, realesate.com.au data revealed that in Sydney, beach suburbs and those close to the ocean and harbour have become the most sought after in the country.

This is a trend which we could see country-wide.

The surge in interest comes at the same time as buying activity drops, thanks to restricted lending from cautious banks.
