If Victorian replication executed to a high standard is your cup of tea, you will appreciate this fine brew. And its premium secluded spot across the road from Werribee River and walking tracks is the sweetener.
From the Sydney bluegum floorboards, Axminster carpet, deep skirts, picture rails and brass light switches to painted rosettes and cornices – it all sings with heritage presence.

On about 745 square metres, the former Colstein Constructions-built house is immaculately maintained.
Flanking the entry hall are a carpeted lounge room with cast-iron gas log fire with period surround; a study (or fourth bedroom) with split-system; and a snazzy powder room.
At hall’s end comes the family hub incorporating a mod-country kitchen with cream panelled cabinetry, hardwood benches, subway tiling, walk-in pantry, dishwasher and Smeg 900mm cooker.
Adjoining is a separate, tiled rumpus room with french doors to a magnificent 11-square outdoor area. This has an almost-formal feel, with a stone urn at the centre and elegant plantings. One of two fitted bedrooms at the rumpus room end has french doors to the gabled pergola as well. Nearby, there’s a laundry with cupboards and workbench, a walk-in linen closet, a separate toilet, and the dual-basin main bathroom with period styling.
The main bedroom suite occupies the entire carpeted top floor. Along with having a walk-in fitted wardrobe and a huge skylit en suite with a tub and dual-basin vanity, there’s an adjoining parental retreat room. And a door from the bedroom accesses the front balcony.
The backyard is laid with synthetic turf and has spots to sit under a canopy of mature trees, while pretty gardens rim the perimeter. A large garden shed is tucked away in the corner.
Other noteworthy features include ducted heating and cooling, an alarm, Evergreen double-glazed windows upstairs, Holland and timber blinds, tessellated verandah tiles, and a drive-through double garage.
This is a ‘brew’ to quench your thirst any day of the year.
