Building For the Future With SLR Concepts On The Mornington Peninsula

What is it that motivates someone to purchase a particular property and inspire them in that ultimate selection? Is it finding the ideal location for raising a family? A retirement ‘forever’ home? Is it based on the potential capital gain that can be achieved – or is it simply lifestyle based, the consideration of work/life balance? The answer is relatively simple – it may well be ‘all of the above’. 

The Mornington Peninsula offers a wide range of options likely to suit most people’s needs and budgets. There is no doubt that areas like Frankston, Mornington, Mt. Martha will see substantial increases in property value over the next ten years. Frankston is a diverse city, a gateway city with a wide variety of property options. The Victorian State Government has channelled considerable investment into the region because of its gateway status. In area it covers over 20 square kilometres. Compare this to Toorak at 4 kilometres and St.Kilda/Elwood at 5.5 kilometres. The city of Frankston has a rather poor reputation, but this is mainly due to the North Frankston precinct. Areas like South Frankston and the properties abutting Long Island offers spectacular opportunity if you, as the property owner, choose to rebuild, extend or renovate. Median property prices compared to the rest of Melbourne are relatively low yet the area has spectacular bayside beaches relatively good schools and a range of higher education institutions as well as sporting and recreation facilities. Property values currently range from $400K through to $720K (approx.) from Bonbeach extending to Mt. Martha. Finding the right property for re-development offers the potential of significant returns over the next ten years. 

SLR Concepts Building and Construction specialise in such re-developments and renewals on the Mornington Peninsula and were recently recognised as this year’s Housing Industry of Australia Winner in the category of Renovations & Additions (over $500K) Eastern Victoria and a State Finalist in the category Renovations & Additions ($1.5M – $2.5M).

The Mornington Peninsula offers the opportunity to reset your future and build a home that fulfills both your aspirations and family needs. A home that is not only a vision for the future but a practicable, sustainable build that provides comfort, economical security and genuine lifestyle rewards.

Strata Development Bayside and on the Mornington Peninsula with SLR Concepts Building and Construction.

The Mornington Peninsula has long been accepted as a retirement mecca for many Melburnians. Add to this the coastal strip from Mordialloc through to Frankston and Bayside on Westernport from Somerville through to Hastings, Merricks and Flinders – all these areas are considered very desirable retirement locations. 

However, with changing lifestyles many older people are now looking for options with less maintenance and obligations than a traditional home. Townhouses, units and apartments are super appealing to this demographic.

And as the population ages suitable blocks for strata development become available in correctly zoned areas, which include many of the locations previously mentioned.

Larger blocks can accommodate 6 to 8 townhouses, or 3-4 luxury townhouses. Again an apartment complex these days can be constructed allowing up to 60 squares per apartment – real space, real living, the SLR Concepts way.

A recent project completed saw SLR Concepts Team develop an apartment complex in Woodbine Avenue, Chelsea. The previous dwelling here was a standard 3 bedroom weatherboard home that had seen better days. Local Government recognises the limitation of such housing in that it is not suitable for renovation and acknowledges such older dwellings are situated on very large blocks. Consequently, a number of Councils have rezoned many areas to accept Strata Title and Dual Occupancy on such blocks.

The financial advantages to those owning such properties are obvious. And with modern construction techniques, large comfortable dwellings taking full advantage of natural light and space are the result.

SLR Concepts have constructed a number of such developments in both South East Melbourne, the inner North and in Ringwood North in the Outer East of Melbourne.

With modern conveniences that includes full climate control, data based household systems, water saving, clever use of outdoor and common areas, SLR Concepts achieve a truly sustainable building foot print on all of its projects.

Dual occupancy is another option for those owning suitable properties with larger blocks. It’s simpler to demolish the older dwelling and create two new dwellings of substantial size and comfort. Owners then have the option of a passive income from rent or making the choice to  sell the second new dwelling for capital gain.

For those interested in exploring Dual Occupancy or Town House development, please feel free to call our office on 03 5981 0661 and schedule an appointment at your convenience.

SLR Concepts will facilitate and confirm all permits and documentation required by local authorities, providing a stress-free process for clients, right through to ‘lock up’ stage

The Mornington Peninsula Build With SLR Concepts

Starting at probably Seaford in Melbourne’s South East, Bayside living and working offers real advantages in these days of online communication – zoom, skype, facetime to name a few options. Melbourne is fast becoming a huge metropolitan city with smaller satellite cities being constructed on the outer edges. In the South East there is Cranbourne, Frankston, Mornington and Rosebud offering great commercial sites as well as a wide range of housing options. 

Commercial and industrial estates are expanding from Seaford, Baxter and Mornington to Hastings, Dromana and Rosebud. There are significant incentives for businesses to relocate to some of these locations. Peninsula road links now provides easy access to the East Link and Monash Freeways. Travel time for staff is significantly reduced with the access provided by the Peninsula Freeway to centres like Dandenong, Frankston, Berwick and Pakenham. The South East corridor of Melbourne is the city’s fastest growth area. 

SLR Concepts can provide building and construction services to both commercial and residential clients. Commercial office and warehouse complexes, retail premises and combinations of retail and residential with luxury apartment living are all possible. 

But now to residential. Over the past few weeks we have discussed various options open and available to those wishing to build, renovate or restore residential properties on the Mornington Peninsula. 

There are a number of these opportunities. Most of the housing stock located between Seaford and Portsea and, alternatively, between Frankston and Flinders was constructed and built in the mid twentieth century through until the late 1990s. The majority were holiday homes, except in the Seaford /Frankston area and from Mt. Eliza through to Mt. Martha with Mornington being the epicentre of an area of many “forever retiree’s homes”. There is a transition now of younger people buying up such properties looking to renovate, refurbish or rebuild. 

SLR Concepts offer real understanding and a verifiable track record in the construction, restoration and remodelling of such existing dwellings throughout the Peninsula and its areas. This SLR team were the winners of the HIA Renovation and Restoration section in Eastern Victorian for Projects Valued Between $500K and $1.5M, as well as being State Finalists in the same category. 

Now is the time to start the process. Change your lifestyle. Opt for beaches, fresh air and forests and a home with space and the features you want.  

Vacant block or knock down and rebuild – what are the best options – the right solution for you and your family? A small acreage in Moorooduc or maybe Bfurnay views in McCrae or Tootgarook. A large beachside home suitable for renovation and renewal in Dromana? Or an older refined property suitable for renovation in Mornington?

Renovate and Extend with SLR Concepts Building and Construction

As time passes what has been comfortable and adequate for your family can often become claustrophobic and intense with children entering their teenage years. As parents your thoughts turn to providing each of them their own room and it becomes obvious that in the living room space is at a premium. It’s time to consider a refurbishment, a renovation, an extension or even a rebuild with SLR Concepts

Your decision will be influenced by a range of factors –  location, the size of your existing dwelling, the dimensions of your current block and the structural integrity of your current home. Other factors include the era in which your home was built and any covenants or overlays that may apply -zoning, heritage overlays, greenspace requirements and height restrictions. 

You may have multiple options. It could be that you extend utilising your large block, add new living areas, outdoor entertainment areas, new bathrooms and bedrooms. A second storey extension or simply re-engineering your home with a sizeable addition will provide real space and real room to move

Another option is to knock down your existing home and create a dual occupancy property. With modern building techniques and engineering your new home (and it’s twin that you can rent or sell to finance your project) can be up to 60 squares in area featuring all modern conveniences. 

Today it’s common sense to incorporate a full solar system with battery storage. Add a sensible water reticulation and storage system to service your WCs, spa, swimming pool and gardening irrigation. Add spacious tiled bathrooms with modern, functional fittings with designer basins, bathtubs and full length glass shower walls. Climate systems data controlled for heating and cooling, data controlled media and security systems. Indoor living areas with full length sliding glass doors opening onto an outdoor kitchen/barbeque area with a kitchen herb garden. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination.
