A Brighton Beach bathing box on the popular Dendy's Beach has sold for a record $330,000 plus.

It topped the previous record, set last year when a newly-built hut sold for $326,000.

Marshall White agent Barb Gregory secured the pre-auction sale of Bathing Box 60. It was expected to fetch between $270,000 and $297,000.

On top of purchasing and maintenance costs, owners have to pay about $1650 each year in licensing fees and council rates.

The first box that traded at auction was in 1999 at $58,000.

Brighton houses have sold up to $22 million.

Listing agent Barb Gregory, once a proud owner of a $3200 beach box, regrets when she and her friends sold it a few years later.

There will no doubt be high hopes for Bathing Box 76E now, which goes to auction this weekend (below).

Its the second time the box has been listed in less than two years. It has $300,000 hopes for its weekend auction having last traded for $285,000 in January last year.

It was built by Bayside City Council in 2015.

Julian Augustini at Hodges Brighton has the listing.
