Summerhill is an exclusive community for fewer than 200 spacious and elegant homes, nestled in a natural and private setting.
The community has been planned to make the most of its unique position, nestled between the Royal Botanic Gardens and the popular Acacia community. The masterplan design brings touches of the Royal Botanic Gardens right to your front door, from formal estate entranceways and threshold treatments, to lush mature trees and premium, native streetscapes.
Generously sized lots cater precisely for expansive homes and the sense of privacy and space residents are seeking to enjoy. Our carefully considered design guidelines will ensure that homes are of a similar high quality as your own, making Summerhill stand out above the rest
Designed to be enjoyed
Summerhill has been designed to bring touches of the Royal Botanic Gardens right to your door. You are encouraged to plant native Australian plants to create a little piece of the Botanic Gardens right at home.
Along with guided tours, the Botanic Gardens also has a small nursery on site with special offers throughout the year, and a collection of brochures to assist with your plans.
The best of both worlds
At Summerhill, there’s no hustle and bustle outside your front door; just the calm, ambient sounds of life in a charming and peaceful setting.
With the Cranbourne Royal Botanic Gardens next door, you’ll never be short of beautiful settings to explore. Stroll through the picturesque landscape of the Australian Garden, jump on the Garden Explorer for a guided tour, or enjoy scones and tea at the Boon Wurrung café.
When the time comes to designing your garden the Royal Botanic Gardens will also be a great source of inspiration and advice

Confidence in 120 years’ experience
Our founder, James Thomas Peet, established the company in 1895 with the belief that owning property and having a home of your own was every Australian’s birthright. The ‘energetic Englishman’ became one of Western Australia’s most successful and respected real estate people, and the name Peet & Co. became synonymous for ‘reasonable prices and fair dealing’. Since that time, Peet has survived and thrived – through wars, changes in ownership, listing on the ASX and national expansion – James Peet’s legacy has lived on through the generations. Underpinning our continued growth and success are the very same qualities that were evident more than a century ago – vision; strong leadership; courage and integrity; and a passion for property. It’s a powerful heritage that sets us apart.
