The Ash Marton team would like to welcome you to 18 Woodlands Grove Frankston.
After a huge, heart-warming effort from the community, the Russell family home is now on the market.
This home has been a peaceful sanctuary for the family since the tragic loss of their daughter, Natalie Russell, who was a victim of serial killer Paul Denyer in 1993. This event has touched so many in our community, so much so that over 50 individuals and businesses have kindly helped to transform the property in order to give this family the best chance of finding an investor willing to enable the Russell family to remain in the home for the foreseeable future.
Positioned in a peaceful cul-de-sac in one of Frankston’s most desirable locations, this charming 3 bedroom home, with study is situated just minutes from the Frankston CBD and is close to schools, shops, public transport, Botanical Gardens and Frankston’s award winning beach. A self-contained studio offers a secondary source of income and adds to the appeal of this unique and enriching opportunity.
The home has a lovely ambience, is light filled, and presents an open-plan living and dining area which flows on from the kitchen. Complete with wood log fire and air conditioning. At the rear of the home is a decked entertainment space, offering panoramic views of the expansive rear yard, tranquil gardens and Woodlands reserve, which is accessible via a private rear gate.
One of the most striking features here is the Towering Norfolk pine. Carmel and Brian planted this tree 1994 in memory of their daughter and hope to watch it continue to grow for many years to come. This is a regretful sale due to the current owners ailing health and they would love nothing more than to see someone take the reins and continue to enable Brian and Carmel to remain in the property. There is a lot of soul in this home and we are searching for an investor with a big heart who can continue to help this couple remain in a home that means so much to them.
Promising strong capital growth and good returns for the future, you can secure a solid investment with the added bonus of knowing you’ve made a world of difference to a deserving family in your community.
If you, or someone you know, are interested in securing a fantastic property in a brilliant location and hopefully enabling these wonderful people to live out their golden years in the home they love, please contact me today.
