On a corner block of about 870 square metres, this smartened-up residence, rimmed with high Colorbond fences for added security and privacy, is in a prime locale – two minutes’ drive from Woodgrove shopping centre and four from Melton West Primary School.

Entry is to a tiled foyer, ahead of which is an accent wall in a lovely blue shade and, to the right, a carpeted open lounge room with a bay window (dressed in appealing tab drapes) and a Coonara wood heater. The grey carpet in here is new and of the SmartStrand variety, known for its stain and water resistance.

The same carpet is laid in the four fitted bedrooms, each with roman blinds. The large main bedroom, with stylish pendants each side of the bed, has a walk-in robe and en suite.

Other bedrooms are down a hallway, with a door providing separation from busy living areas. They share the hallway with main bathroom, separate toilet and laundry.

Behind double doors from the foyer, there’s a floorboarded study which would also make a great playroom or TV snug for the kids.

Floorboards are also in the family sitting area, while the meals zone and kitchen are tiled for practicality. Plenty of cupboards in pale timber-look and a corner pantry, plus a wall oven, 900mm gas cooktop and dishwasher bearing the prized Westinghouse label fit out the cooks’ domain.

Ducted heating and evaporative cooling, NBN connection and updated lightfittings are included.

A covered alfresco area adjoins a second shade cloth-clad pergola which shelters tropical plantings, while a stretch of lawn lets kids and pets romp free.

As well as a double garage, the property has a large shed/man cave with air-conditioner and TV connection.
