Willow Grove Homes & Granny Flats featured in Mornington Peninsula Magazine

We were chuffed to see that Director Farah Drake and Willow Grove Homes & Granny Flats were featured in the Mornington Peninsula Magazine’s March 2021 edition.

Mornington Peninsula Magazine’s International Women’s Day feature

The magazine did a 20-page feature article for International Women’s Day, “Let’s honour the women who make their mark”. Farah and Willow Grove Homes & Granny Flats are found on page 80 of the magazine, but we’ve replicated the content below for your convenience.


Experience the difference with a Willow Grove build

Willow Grove Homes & Granny Flats has been operating for more than 55 years, and this family owned and operated business – led by director Farah Drake (also a registered builder herself) – knows just how important your home is to you.

Willow Grove specialises in building granny flats and relocatable homes on the Mornington Peninsula as well as across Melbourne, and the team’s knowledge of local council requirements is extensive.

If you’re in the market for a granny flat or relocatable home, Willow Grove Homes & Granny Flats is your one-stop shop where everything is taken care of – from planning and building permits to site requirements and service connections. In short, you don’t have to worry about a thing.

The team prides themselves on having the technical knowledge needed to build your new dream home while also giving you the personal touch. They listen and they care. And while saving money is important, they do not and will not compromise on quality just to save a couple of dollars.

If you’re in a bushfire-prone area, you can leave your cares at the front door – Willow Grove can build homes and granny flats to one of the highest bushfire attack level ratings.

If you have accessibility requirements, Willow Grove can provide your new home with stepless shower bases, grab rails, raised toilets, and wider doorways and ramps for easy wheelchair access.

The average standard building time is 10-13 weeks after permits have been obtained, and Willow Grove’s amazing team – some of whom have been with the company for nearly 20 years, while others have been there twice as long – are dedicated to making sure you are completely happy at every stage. Willow Grove is one big family and they want your family to be 100 per cent satisfied.

Willow Grove’s floorplans can be customised to suit your tastes – in fact, you are limited only by your imagination – and the extensive list of standard inclusions ranges from floor coverings, verandas with merbau decking, and interior and exterior painting to kitchen and bathroom joinery, kitchen appliances, light fittings and flyscreens.

Your new home also comes complete with a minimum 6-star energy rating with double glazing to all windows; underfloor, wall and ceiling insulation; and a 2,000-litre water tank and pump connected to the sanitary flushing.

Willow Grove is currently revamping its product and display centre, so there are exciting times ahead. Whether you’re retaining your independence, just starting out, or need a little extra room for your growing family, your complete lifestyle is waiting for you in a Willow Grove relocatable home or granny flat. These quality homes are designed to look good wherever they are located – on your country block, by the sea, or as a granny flat in the backyard.
