Beautiful Homes

It’s safe to say that most of us like to admire a beautiful home and garden. Beautiful Homes is a collection of inspiring images from homes and gardens on the Mornington Peninsula. These homes can be full time residences or beach shacks or on the market and looking for new homeowners. The Beautiful Homes featured in this section of lovethepen.com.au don’t follow specific trends so sit back and enjoy the gorgeous photos and let your imagination run wild. Some are modest with only a couple of rooms and are used as an escape, others are far more sophisticated and grand. What we look for is a connection to the land in their design and the way these homes facilitate interaction amongst owners or guests. These homes are a part of the Pen’s architectural DNA so please enjoy.

Paton Estate Agents

Blane Paton and his family understand the land, and have been a part of the Mornington Peninsula landscape since his parents moved to Merricks over 60 years ago. Their farm was focused on dairy cattle, but horses have always been an important part of their lives. “In the early days we rode horses to herd the cattle,” says Blane. “We never used motorbikes. In the 1980s I bought a Clydesdale horse and then we started showing the breed.”
