In a princely pocket that’s arranged in a square around parkland, this corner property fits right in. Its gracious setting well matches the quiet elegance of the house and gardens, while the convenience of having Pacific Werribee just five minutes’ drive down the road is invaluable. The Grange P-12 College, Cambridge Primary School and parklands are even closer.

Freshly painted in soft Tuscan-inspired shades and with new carpet laid quite recently, the house has entry under a verandah to a broad foyer with a french-door closet.

Next up is carpeted lounge-dining room (nine metres long) with a tiled walkway running alongside that leads to the minor bedroom “wing”. The three fitted bedrooms (one is ideal as a study) are arranged around the gleaming main bathroom and toilet that flank an open-plan vanity. The laundry, with fold-down bench and plenty of room for ironing, is also down here.

The spacious main bedroom, with walk-in robe and en suite with big mirror and enclosed toilet, is off the lounge room and positioned to catch the morning rays.

The spacious family-meals zone has, courtesy of four large windows, excellent views of the square’s parkland, while the kitchen with downlights will win the heart of the family cook. That kitchen has an abundance of pale timber-look cabinetry (including french-door corner pantry and pot drawers) and a servery/brekkie bench able to seat three or four, plus a wall oven, electric cooktop and dishwasher.

Out back, a fab covered and paved alfresco area, with shadecloth-sheltered fernery at one end, is a pretty spot to sit when gathering with friends and family. The gardens are well established and a good wedge of lawn gives kids and pets secure space to run.

The property also has ducted heating, split-system, monitored alarm, solar system, NBN readiness, two water tanks, storage shed and a drive-through double garage with internal access, remote-controlled door and extra space for workshop or storage.

The block of about 770 square metres is blessed with established plum, peach, nectarine, apple and various citrus trees, plus passionfruit and kiwifruit vines.
