In Exclusive Gardens estate, with Arnolds Creek walking track 50 metres away, this flawlessly presented house on about 350 square metres is a gem for busy families wanting to avoid weekend yard work, as well as older couples who travel a lot and want minimal garden upkeep.

A colour palette of greys and white, porcelain tiling, white roller blinds and abundant natural light make this a streamlined contemporary affair with much appeal.

Entry is to a tiled walkway with downlit wall niches, to the left of which is a carpeted open lounge room with terrific lowboy cabinetry in pearl-grey wood-grained laminate. Farther along, there’s an under-stair storage space and access to the remote-controlled drive-through double garage.

The expansive living hub is next, where the slick kitchen has an island bench topped with white Caesarstone, white glass splashback, and cabinetry in the same pear-grey wood-grain as in the bathrooms. Tucked behind, there’s a walk-in pantry, beyond which are a powder room and laundry.

Grey-carpeted stairs ascend to a landing, around which range four large fitted bedrooms and fully tiled main bathroom with raised basin atop Caesarstone. The main bedroom has a walk-in robe and a similarly decked-out en suite.

Evaporative cooling, ducted heating and a split-system keep things seasonally comfy.

Narrow back and side yards are virtually maintenance-free.

St Catherine of Siena and Wedge Park primary schools and Catholic Regional College are within four-minute car trips, Melton Secondary College a little further. Woodgrove shopping centre is about 10 minutes away, Western Freeway entry less.

If a sparkling house in a quiet street is your cup of tea, this could be it.
