This one, in popular Jacksons Creek estate, has the good looks, generous floorplan and large garden block of about 1045 square metres that will tempt families of all stripes. It’s in a nicely tucked-away spot, yet just five minutes’ drive from the village centre and primary and secondary schools.

As evidenced by the manicured front garden, the property is beautifully presented. Mocha wall paint and floor tiles, highlights of subtle Laura Ashley wallpaper and near-new designer drapes, slim-line venetians and soft-chocolate carpet combine in stylish harmony.

Entry is to a short hallway, flanked by a study (or fifth bedroom) and the elegant main bedroom with concealed walk-in robe and a dual-basin en suite with a tub. Double doors at hall’s end usher in a large, walk-through lounge room, off which is the second bedroom.

Then comes the family-meals area wrapped around the kitchen, followed by double doors to a large sitting room where the wallpaper puts on a show. The big kitchen has chocolate cabinetry, cream laminate benchtops, a return island breakfast bar, a french-door pantry and all the shiny mod-cons.

Along a rear hallway, the remaining fitted bedrooms are big and tastefully decorated; they flank a gleaming bathroom, separate toilet and a laundry with triple-door closet, cupboards and workbench.

The meals zone opens to a Laserlite- roofed pergola that wraps around to the back to create shelter for a clothesline and a spot to admire the rear yard. This has a spacious lawn rimmed by attractive mixed plantings of weeping cherry, a lemon tree, pittosporums and a towering eucalypt. The side yard has gardens of pebbles planted with silver birches and ornamental shrubs.

The property has ducted heating, evaporative cooling, water tank and a double garage with internal entry to the hallway.
