Another bathing box on Brighton’s foreshore has been listed for sale.

It is bathing box 44. It is set for May 28 auction through hockingstuart.

The last sale secured a record $285,000, and then two weeks later there was a $295,000 sale of 62B.

The $285,000 sale was one of two newly built Dendy Beach boxes – 76E and 76F – to go under the hammer at weekend auction through Hodges.

There were four bidders for the bathing box. 

Both were constructed by council in December.

Their prices bettered the previous benchmark of $260,000, set in 2011.

Brighton local Walter Gibson, 87, and his wife Helen, 85, have been locals for 60 years, but told The Age they only decided three days prior to buy the record-breaking box, 76E.

Record sales: 76E and 76F Beach Box, Dendy Beach Brighton

It is set to be enjoyed by their 16 grandchildren.

Neighbouring box 76F sold for $280,000 to another local family.

Only Bayside City Council residents are eligible to own a Dendy Beach box.
