The three-time Melbourne Cup winner can expect more than $1.8 million for 98 Beach Street, which he bought in 1997, when Mirvac started constructing the village.

Beacon Cove includes a mix of apartments, townhouses and larger homes, including some with water views, like Oliver’s.

The three-bedroom plus study domain includes an indoor sauna and spa room, a sitting room, open plan living and dining room and a gourmet kitchen overlooking a north-facing garden with access to Park Square. The yard also includes a putting green and another spa.

Some of the upstairs bedrooms offer views of the city skyline only a couple of kilometres away.

The home is also walking distance to Station Street Pier and the Bay Street and Bridport Street shopping villages.

Oliver is arguably Australia’s greatest jockey, with an unmatched record. Last week, he won his 10th Melbourne Jockeys’ Premiership with 60 winners.

Along with his Cup wins on Doriemus, Media Puzzle and Fiorente, pictured below, who is part-owned by Marshall White chief John Bongiorno, Oliver also has four Caulfield Cups, two Cox Plates and a Golden Slipper to his name.

A movie and book The Cup depicted Oliver’s dramatic and emotional victory on Media Puzzle, five days after the death of his brother Jason, also a jockey, in a track fall in Perth.

Marshall White’s Michael Paproth will auction Oliver’s home on August 22.
