A LUXURY new eco-friendly townhouse in Portarlington has been snapped up as the coastal village continues to attract buyers.
It will be a sea-change for the buyers of 29a Welfare St after a previous tree change to the Warburton area.
Fletchers, Queenscliff agent Wayne Wrigley said the buyers bought the property for $695,000 and were looking forward to the next stage of their life in Portarlington.

“It is a very up-market build and has been beautifully fitted out and has views over the flora and fauna park to the bay,” Mr Wrigley said.
“People are now seeing Portarlington as an opportunity.”
He said with Melbourne people now working in Geelong for WorkSafe or NDIS, people were looking at opportunities and Portarlington was a real catch with the ferry to Docklands.
The three-bedroom townhouse is spread over two levels with the sleeping quarters on the ground floor and the living areas upstairs.
The townhouse next door is expected to be listed for sale this week.
The median house price in Portarlington has increased 22.6 per cent in the past year to $619,000, according to CoreLogic.
