An architect’s own creation, a redesigned period home and a resort-style family haven are among the outstanding homes that featured in the Frankston Standard Leader real estate section.
Each sold for $1.755 million or more, with keen interest and strong offers for each, according to the agents.
In Langwarrin South, one of the region’s most tightly held suburbs, 75 Weeroona Rd is a sparkling contemporary house with a serene semirural setting.
The home of an owner-architect, it has a stylish and innovative design with generous use of glass to bring in the vistas.
The double-storey home has spacious living zones that flow onto relaxing outdoor areas. Inside, details range from a large open-plan kitchen and dining zone and balcony to an industrial-style staircase and glass lift, plus a rumpus room with an aquarium and wet bar.
A saltwater pool and spa is included at Weeroona Retreat which is on a 1.19ha block. The property fetched $1.95 million, one of the top prices in the suburb.
Retaining an old world charm but updated for modern family living is a three-bedroom beauty at 169 Humphries Rd, Frankston South.
“This home on a private battle-axe block has been renovated and extended and comes with a backyard with a lovely Mediterranean feel with fruit trees, a bocce court and entertainment area,” listing agent Anna Bassett of Nicholas Lynch said.
The home on 3648sq m with a coveted Sweetwater Creek backdrop sold for $1.755 million in August.
Its classic style has been enhanced with a contemporary style to maximise its spacious dimensions.
The interiors feature a stunning lounge and dining zone, a central kitchen and a second living area with bushland and water views.
Inclusions are a barbecue kitchen on the deck, resort-style swimming pool and spa, and beautifully landscaped gardens.
The double garage has room for a home office or studio and the home is located within the popular Frankston High School zone.
Nearby 265A Humphries Rd is an idyllic five-bedroom, four-bathroom oasis at the end of a private driveway.
“It has total privacy with zoned living and accommodation plus an indoor pool with a spa and sauna and a mod-grass tennis court,” listing agent Quentin McEwing said.
The resort-style haven is handy for a large family and sold for $1.8 million in April.
Apart from beautiful gardens, it comes with a putting green, jacuzzi and gym on a 4800sq m parcel.
The flexible interior features multiple living areas and zoned wings, and it also has a detached studio with a kitchenette and ensuite.
The modern kitchen has granite benchtops, while a large conservatory has bi-fold doors opening to the gardens and terrace.
Mr McEwing said the replacement value of such a home was at least $2 million.
