3912 – Somerville
Somerville enjoys a range of scenery and terrains, stretching from the beachside of Western Port Bay to the East through to light residential and rural areas of the Mornington Peninsula’s hinterland.
The village of Somerville is a thriving community with all of the necessary amenities as well as primary and secondary schools. It boasts a number of sporting facilities, including three AFL/cricket grounds, the Somerville Eagles Football and Netball Club and a well-equipped aquatic centre as well as a public, 9-hole golf course and the Yaringa boat harbour.
Median house prices in Somerville are $376,000, with the limited number of units averaging $322,000 over the year finishing in January 2014, according to Australian Property Monitors. This is an affordable area ideally situated to enjoy its small semi-rural idyll as well as the best the region has to offer.
The population profile is broadly representative of the Mornington Peninsula, with slightly higher proportion of trade and manufacturing as well as those involved with the various rural enterprises in the area.
With the development of the South Gippsland Highway, Somerville’s location near the top of Western Port allows ready access to the wilds of Gippsland, the peninsula’s fantastic wineries and beaches or Melbourne’s arts and entertainment precincts – all less than an hour’s drive away.
