With the walking paths of the Werribee River, as well as wetlands, within a stone’s throw, and Corpus Christi Primary School, Werribee Secondary College and the Princess Freeway entrance only a short drive away, this lovely house puts families at close quarters to nature without compromising on comfort or community.
Its design brings to mind a by-gone era, with steel roofs, gorgeous brickwork, cream rendering, slim profile windows, gabled porch and stout pillars coming together in an alluring façade.

Inside, polished concrete and stonemix floors are on point, and in combination with modish white walls and windows framed in black, enhance the striking spaces. An open living area integrates family and meals zones with the smart kitchen at its centre.
Its large island bar combines a practical breakfast extension, storage and food preparation space. The kitchen also has stainless-steel appliances and a butler’s pantry makes it easy to keep everything free of clutter, while inverted panel ceilings are dotted with downlights which highlight and add to the room’s design.
Sliding doors lead from here to the outdoor entertainment area and the large garden. Here, a brick workshop also houses a second kitchen that has barbecue facilities, and a stylish bar. It overlooks the flourishing back garden where trees and lawn keep things sanctuary-like and private.
Back inside, a second living area could easy be a home theatre space, while a light-filled study is close to sleeping areas. Situated at the rear of the house and with views on to the lush garden, the main bedroom is huge and has a walk-in robe and a stunning en suite. Glinting tiles lining the double shower area and a vanity with twin basins create nothing less than a spa atmosphere.
The remaining three bedrooms are also spacious and have built-in storage. The central bathroom borrows from the en suite’s aesthetics, with restful tones.
Double garage, refrigerated cooling and ducted heating elevate the comfort factor.
