In the centre of a handy enclave bounded by Presidents Park, Werribee River, Princes Highway and the racecourse, this property has a locale perfectly suited to an active family.
The river’s walking/bike trails are less than a 10-minute amble away, as is Manor Vale Primary School. St Andrews Primary School is a three-minute car trip away, as are Eagle Stadium, Presidents Park and childcare facilities.

The house, with elegant facade, sits on about 595 square metres which provides for a good-sized backyard – with lawn and mature trees – for kids and pets to run about, and grown-ups to dream up personal projects.
Entry is to a foyer with off-white floor tiles that continue in living areas. On the left, there’s a study that could serve as a fourth bedroom; and, opposite, the main bedroom. This has a walk-in robe and en suite.
The other two fitted bedrooms share a rear hallway with the laundry, separate toilet, and good-sized main bathroom with attractive blue tiling.
A sliding door at foyer’s end opens to a walk-through lounge room with laminate floorboards, and charcoal drapes and sheers that match those on the upcoming living hub’s windows. This is a very practical room that, separate from the front door and hub, works well as a playroom or retreat from the hustle of the main living zone.
Spacious and well-lit, the living hub incorporates the kitchen which has plenty of storage (including a cupboard pantry) and a brekkie bench for at least four. A dishwasher, gas cooktop and underbench oven are also on board.
A long, gable-roofed pergola runs along the side, with concrete underfoot flanked each side by lawn. Pretty plantings along the fence beautify the pergola area, and there’s a double garage.
