BITTERN, 2385 Frankston-Flinders Road



Steeped in local history and uniquely positioned with main road frontage ideal for a business or tourism venture, Bittern Cottage has been a landmark for more than a century.

Built in 1915 as the homestead for a rural property and more recently run as a popular French provincial restaurant, the Victorian-style building retains its original features with open fireplaces, formal rooms, a delightful front veranda and colourful traditional gardens.

With a little maintenance and imagination the property could be brought back to its original charm with the options of being a unique family home or having the opportunity to create a new business venture ( STCA ) given the advantage of passing traffic, a recent large lifestyle development directly opposite and numerous similar facilities in the area."

The property offers a myriad of uses (STCA), with four bedrooms in the main residence, a semi self-contained one-bedroom apartment or Air B&B with its own entrance and another attached living and dining area with a full kitchen previously used as the restaurant,

Other features include an outdoor fireplace in the appealing front courtyard, a wine cellar, established roses and native trees and plenty of off-street parking on the 1616sqm allotment located near Bittern Station. There could also be an option to lease 8000sqm of adjoining railway land subject to VicTrack approval.

  • It has been 10 days since I moved and am settling in well. I wanted to convey my thanks to you and your consideration towards me, particularly as far as how I should go about arranging the sale and in the dealings with my neighbour. Your advice was very helpful. All the dealings, both with the old and new properties, have gone smoothly and I am well satisfied.

We were delighted in the number of sincere buyers you introduced and the way you conducted the inspections and negotiations. Both the final result and the timely sale were very rewarding and our new home project has now become a reality.

  • Ange and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being so professional throughout this whole transaction. From the very start when we first contacted you asking to view the property at such short notice, through to negotiations and second and third viewing, you have been an absolute pleasure to deal with. Thanks again for doing such an amazing job. I know who I will turn to next time I need to buy or sell a property in the area.

  • Now that I have moved into my new home I wanted to take the time to tell you how much I appreciated all your efforts in marketing and selling my farm ‘Dundrum’. There is no doubt that you always went the extra mile for me when working with potential purchasers and I am very grateful for your perseverance in obtaining my price. I know the new owners are very happy at the property and it suits…

  • I would just like to say ‘thank you’ for the manner in which you sold mum’s property at Shoreham. The way you kept me informed was exemplary and as we discussed the other day the end result was quite acceptable. Dealing with our family is no easy task!! Thanks for all your hard work and both Nairne and I look forward to settlement. It is the end of an era, but time to move on.
