There’s two Portsea bathing boxes for sale set among tea trees on the Shelley Beach foreshore.

Agents expect box number 43 (above) to fetch about $500,000.

It was number 23 sold for a record price of $615,000 in late 2015 at auction while Boat Shed No.1 on Portsea’s Front Beach received an offer of more than $700,000 last year, before the listing was withdrawn.

“It wasn’t high enough for the vendors to let go of an asset that they know they can never replace,” Melbourne Sotheby’s International Realty Sorrento’s Rob Curtain told the local paper.

Dubbed by the agent as the “buttercup boatshed”, no. 43 sits at the foot of the main track to Shelley Beach, near the Hemston Avenue car park.

Number 37, (below) between the car park and Campbells Road stairs, is also on the market for $400,000.
