Grand Wantirna South house with sprawling gardens hits the market
It’s easy to get swept away by the expansive gardens and extra-large family living spaces found at 10 Billabong Court, Wantirna South.
The grand family home has hit the market in a quiet court with a $1.29-$1.419 million price guide.
Barry Plant Wantirna agent Brett Smith said the property was in one of the suburb’s “most sought-after and tranquil courts”.

A property has not been sold on the street for two years and the vendors are expected to make a windfall. CoreLogic shows they bought in the tightly held court for $121,000 in 1995.
At the front of the property, a sweeping front lawn with tall manicured hedges and a large driveway offers a first impression of the sprawling space.
There was an abundance of space across the two storeys of the five-bedroom house, which made for a flexible floorplan, Mr Smith said.
“Three large living zones and two and a half bathrooms ensure even the largest of families can play or relax in their own space,” he said.
“The home is turnkey ready, comes complete with every amenity possible and is close to Waverley Christian College, shops and transport.”
A carpeted formal living and dining room with pendant lights is to the right of the entrance foyer.
It’s matched by an equally large open-plan living area with high ceilings, which is a more casual space at the rear.
The kitchen is also here, with Chef and Fisher & Paykel appliances plus a convenient stone-topped breakfast bench.
A covered brick alfresco area is found beyond glass sliding doors. It’s a great place for an outdoor meal whatever the weather. Landscaped gardens are beyond, with plenty of impressive manicured plants bordering the lawn. A green house is also in the garden to help with maintaining the grounds.
The main bedroom is on the ground floor, with both a walk-in wardrobe and built-in wardrobe allowing plenty of storage space. A double-vanity ensuite also adds to the convenience.
Three minor bedrooms with built-in wardrobes are on the first floor, set near a rumpus room that forms a great teenage retreat. A large study on the ground floor has an impressive bookshelf along a whole wall, but it could be easily transformed into a fifth bedroom for a larger family.
The court residence is near peaceful parklands and walking distance to Waverley Christian College and The Knox School.
It’s for private sale, with expressions of interest set to close on May 6.
