The beautiful beaches, picturesque surrounds and supportive local community of the Mornington Peninsula make it one of the best places in Victoria for raising a family. Located to the south of Melbourne, the peninsula is only an hour out of the city, and is known for world-class wineries, enviable restaurants, family-friendly activities, relaxing spas and wonderful gardens. The region is a cultural epicentre that contains plenty of incredible natural wonders of residents and tourists alike.
A family owned and operated business, Davis Made has been building in this region for decades, so we’re well placed to explain the benefits of living here. In this blog, we’re discussing some of the many reasons you should build a family friendly home on the Mornington Peninsula.
When you live in the hustle and bustle of the city, it can be difficult to find or build a home that is spacious enough to accommodate you and your growing family. Blocks of land and renovation projects can also be extremely costly when you’re looking to live centrally. Building in a place like the Mornington Peninsula, where there are larger blocks and plenty of space to play with is often better suited to a family lifestyle. You’ll also be able to find larger land for more reasonable prices.
This extra space means you’ll be able to create a truly functional and luxurious family home, with all those fun additions – like a pool, spa or extensive outdoor entertaining area – that may not be possible in a smaller metropolitan home.
Beaches and greenery
The Mornington Peninsula is well known for its expansive beaches and extensive greenery. In our ever-growing digital world, it’s important that children have easy access to the outdoors and grow up in an area where they can play freely. Building a family friendly home in the Mornington Peninsula will mean gardens, walk trails and beaches are only a few minutes away, encouraging family adventures on the daily.
The Peninsula lifestyle
There’s a reason the Mornington Peninsula is so popular with young families. The region boasts some of the best schools and kindergartens in the state and with over 50 schools to choose from, there really is something for everyone.
The beachside lifestyle is a relaxed one, yet the region offers many opportunities for active kids looking for extracurricular sporting and water-based activities. While a little out of Melbourne, extensive public transport services, including buses and trains also operate in the area meaning you’re never too far from the big smoke. It truly is the perfect place to raise a family.
Most importantly, the Mornington Peninsula is filled with plenty of opportunities to build beautiful, functional family homes that will serve you and your family for years to come.
