Robin Boyd-designed Frankston South home listed

Robin Boyd-designed Frankston South home listed

An iconic Robin Boyd creation, the McClune courtyard home at Frankston South has been listed for sale.

The sympathetically restored home is being marketed as an exceptional example of Boyd's ability to blend clean structural lines, huge expanses of glass windows and zoned living to integrate perfectly with nature.

It's set on a gently sloping 4,028-square-metre Frankston South block in a natural bush setting.

The marketing agent Janice Dunn at Eview Real Estate Partners Frankston is describing it as a number of connecting rooms sheltered beneath a suspended roof with a central open square landscaped courtyard.

More than $1 million is being tipped for the Marcus Road family home.

Built in the late 1960s on land then abutting Sweetwater Creek for teacher Ian McClune, the property is one of 11 Robin Boyd-designed homes built on the Mornington Peninsula.

It was briefly owned by Melbourne lawyer –and Boyd fan – Peter Mitrakas, who sold it to the Stowe family in 2009.
