Lot B sold on November 22. Both vacant parcels are on the “front row” of one of the world’s most-admired coastlines,the Great Ocean Road.

The lighthouse,built in 1891,is an icon of the Surf Coast and a source of ghost stories and maritime myths.

It put the seaside town of Aireys Inlet on the map for fans of Paul Jennings’ TV series,aimed at kids and tweens,which launched in 1990 and delighted audiences until 2001.

The wild storylines focused on the Twist family,who lived in the lighthouse,and the supernatural shenanigans that happened to them.

Jennings based the show on his books and with titles including Skeleton On The Dunny,The Big Burp and The Cabbage Patch Fib,it was a hit with generations of Aussie schoolchildren.

The listings explain there is little land left in the hamlet and these addresses,both with lighthouse views,are the best remaining positions.

Lot B is 3237 square metres and had a listed price guide of $2.2 million to $2.4 million during the campaign. It is elevated and has Great Otway National Park vistas.

“Imagine looking out the windows of your future dwelling and having a world famous lighthouse as your neighbour on one side and a breathtaking view along the breaking surf line along a 6km long beach on the other?” one of the listings says.

The land is only a walk to the village cafe,with world-class trails nearby,between the larger towns of Lorne and Anglesea.
