Style and substance: 18 Fontain Court, Werribee 3030

By Carole Levy

Just as the façade gives a distinct nod to the Victorian era, so do the indoor spaces of this flawlessly presented residence, with a handy south-side address adding further enticement – not to mention the glistening pool out back.


18 Fontain Court, Werribee, 3030


The property is a minute by car from Princes Freeway entry and five from Watton Street’s eateries and shops; Werribee Secondary High and primary schools are two and four minutes respectively, while the station is seven.

Back to those Victoriana features. They include a corbelled archway, rosettes on high ceilings, dado rails, two-tone wall paint (soft green/cream) and cornices throughout highlighted in a green shade. Modern accompaniments include plantation shutters, on-trend lightfittings and gleaming honey-toned hardwood floorboards.

The house has four fitted bedrooms, the main with bay window, walk-in robe and en suite. Others share a bathroom with white subway and rosy capping tiles.

A gracious carpeted lounge room, with period-style cast-iron fireplace and mantel, is open to the entry hall. Floorboards here flow through to the kitchen and dining area that abuts a carpeted sitting area.

The large, well-designed kitchen with loads of white cupboards and bench space, has a breakfast counter and stainless-steel wall oven, gas cooktop and dishwasher.

Ducted heating and cooling and security alarm are welcome inclusions.

A gabled pergola, with decking underfoot and laser screens adding polish, is fringed with a good wedge of lawn and curvaceous brick-edged tropically planted gardens.

Nearby is a glass-fenced pool that’s bordered with pavers and sealed aggregate, the area given a holiday vibe from more of the same tropical plants.

The property has a drive-through double garage and the block is about 735 square metres.
