  • Often you imagine the perfect location for your home, but you know you will have to compromise. It is impossible to find a good sized block in a quiet location backing onto the beautiful Sweetwater Creek reserve allowing you a short walk down trail to the stunning beach at the base of Oliver's Hill. A location that also has potential views if you extend to a second level. Of course you would want those views to be North Facing as well to enjoy the winter sun. Oh, and you would want it to be in the Frankston High School Zone either for your kids, to ensure great capital growth or both. Impossible? Almost. This is a truly rare opportunity that also sees you close to the Norman Avenue shops, the beach, Frankston CBD, Train station, Frankston Hospital and Monash University.

    Originally known as "Banner House", this home was designed and built by Ian Banner (who is most notable for being a lead designer with renowned architects Chancellor and Patrick) for his Mother in the early 60's. The potential in the home is obvious with beautiful character features such as cantilevered fireplace, large skylight windows to bathe the living room in natural light and original polished timber floorboards. Although the block is certainly large enough to extend outwards, going up will truly capitalise on the position with the leafy outlook capturing the Sweetwater Creek Reserve, Port Phillip Bay and possibly even the city skyline. Extensive outdoor decking and a large backyard that melds into the Reserve beyond create the perfect foundations for your future.
