Nearly equidistant from Melton and Bacchus Marsh – about 10 minutes by car – this wonderful “open skies” property is the perfect mix of rural tranquillity and proximity to schools and shopping. The house is a ripper, with contemporary spaces designed for easy family life.

Lovely floor planks kick off the journey in the wide entry hall, to the right of which is an open grey-carpeted lounge room. The hallway ducks right to the large main bedroom which has two walk-in robes, as well as a sumptuous fully tiled en suite with dual basins, twin shower and an indulgent tub beneath a plantation-shuttered window.

On the way to the other bedrooms, there’s an open sitting/theatre room, perfect for setting up the kids with a movie.

Bedrooms share another chic bathroom and a powder room.

The expansive living hub has two sets of glass sliders opening wide, one way to a covered deck and the other to a very large concrete area for setting up seating in the sunshine and giving the kids a spot to scoot. Sweeping lawn and rural views provide a peaceful outlook.

The kitchen, with walk-in pantry, is shmick and definitely swank enough for entertaining around the waterfall stone island bench able to seat five. Storage is plentiful, the splashback is glass and all the mod-cons are in place. Very nice.

White rollerblinds and plantation shutters dress windows, cornices on high ceilings are square-set and the palette is greys and white. Everything is beautifully presented and the sense of space and light is palpable. Ducted heating and evaporative cooling provide temperature control.

Other features on the block of about 0.81 hectares include a fenced paddock, water tank, dog-proof fencing, high-density ring water main on the perimeter, three-phase power and a drive-through double garage with internal access.
