A great example of a “forever family home”, this double-storey cracker, perched on about 750 square metres in popular Westlake estate, will have plenty of admirers.

The house has spread-out space galore and the gardens are chock full of simple charm.

The ground level has three distinct living areas: a lounge-dining room, with floorboards, off the tiled entry hall; a family-meals space at the centre; and a rumpus room at the back. Each has sliding-door access to the alfresco area.

The kitchen, with wide servery to the meals area, has plenty of white cupboards and a corner pantry, as well as stainless-steel dishwasher, 900mm gas cooktop and a wall oven.

The laundry and a powder room, off the entry hall, precede the sliding door to the kitchen.

A carpeted stairway leads to a study area, around which are the four fitted bedrooms and main bathroom. The main bedroom, with fanlight window and two others offering views across the treetops, has a retreat space, walk-in robe and en suite.

Ducted heating and evaporative cooling are on board.

A gabled pergola provides entertainment/relaxation space and takes in scenes of pretty gardens, a quaint weatherboard shed and picket-fenced chook run under the shade of a tall tree, islands of lawn and pathways inviting exploration.

The property, with remote-controlled double garage and side access, is within five minutes or less of Woodgrove shopping centre, Wedge Park and Melton West primary schools and Melton Secondary College.
