7A MILLICENT AVE, TOORAK RT Edgar, Toorak, 9826 1000. Jeremy Fox, 0418 339 650 Auc­tion, 3pm March 3

THIS two-storey home built in the 1960s fea­tures clas­sic styling through­out and a pri­vate back­yard with heated swim­ming pool. The kitchen and other ar­eas have un­der­gone taste­ful ren­o­va­tions, ac­cord­ing to RT Edgar, Toorak, agent Oliver Booth. “The kitchen is a re­ally good fam­ily kitchen where ev­ery­one can be in­cluded,” he said. The home is light and bright with high ceil­ings and par­quetry floors through­out. All mi­nor bed­rooms have robes, with en­suites to two of them, while the main has a dress­ing room, en­suite and bal­cony. The mod­ern kitchen and meals area are down­stairs, along with a fam­ily room that opens out to a veranda and seper­ate din­ing and lounge rooms.

14 VIEW ST, HAWTHORN Jel­lis Craig, Boroon­dara Group, 9810 5000. Richard Win­neke, 0418 136 858 Auc­tion, 7pm Fe­bru­ary 22

SAVOUR views of the city from the rooftop ter­race of this newly-built, mul­ti­level home. On the ground floor, en­ter­tain in the open-plan kitchen, din­ing and liv­ing area over­look­ing the swim­ming pool or re­treat to the for­mal lounge room, which Jel­lis Craig, Boroon­dara Group, agent Richard Win­neke said re­sem­bled a 1960s fam­ily room, com­plete with fire­place and wooden pan­nel­ing. He said the view from the rooftop bar, with built-in bar­be­cue, was “in­sane”. Up­stairs is the main bed­room, with dress­ing room, en­suite and two bal­conies, plus a re­treat and three mi­nor bed­rooms with robes. Other fea­tures in­clude a triple garage with work­shop and a but­ler’s pantry.

5A MERILYN WAY, FRANKSTON SOUTH Eview Group, Mel­bourne, 8781 3888. Derek Lea, 0412 204 036 Pri­vate sale, of­fers close 5pm March 20

CRE­ATED in a part­ner­ship be­tween a lo­cal builder and ar­chi­tect, this home is a show stop­per. Agent Derek Lea said there was noth­ing like it in the area. “The views are quite amaz­ing and the house has been de­signed to make the ab­so­lute most of that fact,” Mr Lea said. “Ev­ery an­gle, ev­ery win­dow has been de­signed to take ad­van­tage of the sur­rounds.” Ex­pan­sive open-plan liv­ing ar­eas are a fea­ture in­side and out. A wraparound deck with built-in out­door kitchen looks over the in­fin­i­tyedge pool. There is also an ex­trav­a­gant main bed­room with a walk-through dress­ing room and high-end en­suite where a mas­sive win­dow means you can soak in the im­pres­sive vis­tas while soaking in the bath. Rammed earth, spot­ted gum cladding and floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows are a stylish link to the nat­u­ral sur­rounds.
