Famous Werribee Mansion and Open Park Zoo are 10 minutes by car one way, Wyndham Harbour, the marina and swimming beach five minutes the other. Award-winning Shadowfax Winery is five minutes away for sophisticated nosh. Another bonus? Princes Freeway entry is just three minutes down the road.
The north-facing house is one whose circa early ’80s character is defined by exposed brick walls, multi-paned windows, slate floor tiles and timber arches, frames, doors and cabinetry. Misty-grey wall paint, with matching drapes or rollerblinds, brings lightness to a timeless earthy décor.
The house has four fitted and newly carpeted bedrooms, the main (with walk-in robe and en suite) and one other along the entry hall. The other two share a rear hallway with the main bathroom (with enclosed toilet) and the laundry.
A large lounge room, with a cosy wood heater set in a brick wall, connects via double sliders with the entry hall and a large walk-through study that precedes kitchen, meals zone and separate spacious living room. The latter has french doors to the side verandah, the meals area with the same to the back garden.
The kitchen has abundant storage, a breakfast bench atop stacked bricks, white subway splashback tiles and a dishwasher, electric cooktop and wall oven.
The house is in the midst of nature’s bounty, with gum trees dotting vast expanses of lawn. A mini-orchard features plum, apricot, guava, olive, cherry, lemon, peach, apple and almond trees, along with berries.
A small dam keeps everything thriving via a sophisticated irrigation system and water share rights are
about 6.5 megalitres.
A 25.9 x 12-metre shed, with two high rollerdoors, has provision for electricity, three-phase power and water connections.
