At more than 50 squares, this Porter Davis 2011 residence rocks a high-end elegance weaving through spaces of grand proportions that show off design flourishes intended to impress.
From luscious travertine floor tiles and stately columns to plantation shutters and timber feature trims, it’s a house that oozes substance at every turn. And the block of about 750 square metres, finished to a high standard in prized Vineyard estate, is within an Ash Barty lob of Werribee River.

The ground floor, with an open-plan flow, comprises a carpeted lounge room, dining space and family area with a fireplace plus bifolds and french doors to the alfresco area, as well as a rumpus room, and a study neighbouring a bathroom.
A giant stone-topped island bench, beneath a designer pendant, is the focal point of the classy kitchen, where lovely timber cabinetry is accompanied by a mirror splashback, a Blanco 900mm cooker, and a large walk-in pantry with provision for commercial-grade coffee machine.
The laundry and a walk-in store room are tucked away behind the cooks’ domain, with double garage access nearby.
Heading up a timber staircase, there’s a spacious landing, around which cluster five bedrooms, and another study (with front balcony access) behind double doors.
Three of the four secondary bedrooms each have a walk-in robe and ensuite, another has built-ins. The vast main bedroom, with a slider to a large private balcony, has twin walk-in robes and a stylish dual-basin ensuite with a tub and enclosed toilet.
A magnificent outdoor room, with a wet bar, wooden window seats, bifold doors and servery to the sweeping back lawn, and a fireplace set in bricks, delivers space for entertainment in splendid comfort. Other bifolds open from here to a chic outdoor area, with grey pavers extending beneath a pergola supported by robust columns – almost an Italian loggia feel. Greenery is as trim and decorative as it is throughout the gardens.
Watton Street shops and cafes are five minutes away by car, and four primary schools are within less than a 1.5-kilometre radius.
