He said the view from the rooftop bar, with built-in barbecue, was “insane”.

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.
