A family looking for a contemporary residence on a manageably large block of about 0.6 hectares, in a small community within about 12 minutes of Bacchus Marsh and Melton may find this one fulfils dreams.

It’s a ripper property for a tradie, with its separate driveway to an 11×6-metre shed, as well as for kids who want room to run around and enjoy a fab pool (with expansive paved surrounds). Of course, grown-ups will also love the solar-heated salt pool, which goes beautifully with the giant entertainment room out back – where a vaulted ceiling lined with timber and plaster, plus polished concrete floor and banks of windows put on a fine show.

Entry to the house is via a foyer, to the left of which is an open study.

To the right, a lounge room has a bay window and two sets of french doors to a living hub anchored with lovely polished floorboards. Another bay window forms the meals zone.

The glossy kitchen, with white cabinetry and stone waterfall island bench (able to seat at least four), has a glass splashback and 900mm cooker. It’s a smart space, practical and entertainment-friendly.

Along a hallway from the hub are the laundry, gleaming main bathroom with snazzy tiling, separate toilet and three spacious, carpeted and fitted bedrooms with white rollerblinds and the pearl-grey wall paint seen all through. A kids’ lounge/rumpus room, with floorboards and another bay window and french doors to outdoors, is also along here.

The large main bedroom, at the opposite end, has a walk-through wardrobe and a roomy en suite with an expansive vanity unit.

Notable features include ducted heating, a split-system, wood heater and 12 solar panels. There’s also a lock-up double garage with internal access.
