30 Boundary Rd, Narre Warren East captures stunning vistas from an elevated position.

The long-time Narre Warren East home of ABC TV’s first Victorian announcer is poised to set a price record that will be hard to beat.

The 30 Boundary Rd house was built by former ABC chief announcer John Royle and his wife Lotte in the 1960s.

It stayed in the family until 2010, when it sold for $1 million, CoreLogic records show.

The house has remained largely intact since, but has been extended and renovated to become a prestige home with a $3.55-$3.9 million asking price.
