This stunning property reveals its ownership by a talented artist in every aspect. Werribee local Janet Knight, known for her extraordinary artworks, has transformed what at first blush appears to be an average ’50s brick veneer into a home full of soul and understated elegance.
The block of about 2685 square metres has beautifully landscaped gardens; a solar-heated pool; a tennis court; and a self-contained unit that works as a studio, guest quarters, business headquarters or a pool house with bifolds to deck and pool.

The corner block is right across from the Werribee East precinct, giving it enormous potential for future commercial/unit development. But, right now, it’s a truly wonderful place for a savvy house-hunting family.
The house has three fitted bedrooms, the main with dressing room and a swish en suite with a marble “slab” vanity and giant walk-in shower. One bathroom links with the storage-rich laundry, while the other has a quirky
A carpeted sitting room, with gorgeous ornate cornices and leadlight french doors to the adjoining dining room, oozes elegance, while the informal family-meals space around the kitchen has a different mood. Cornices remain, floors are in hardwood and large picture windows admit streams of light and provide perfect garden vignettes. It’s in this casual living part of the house where the clever reconfiguration is most clearly seen.
The kitchen has slate floor tiles, scads of glossy white cabinetry, granite benches, a fab walk-in pantry, a Bosch concealed dishwasher and Miele cooking appliances.
Playing on the
’50s theme, an arc of glass bricks backdrops an inground spa with mosaic tiling. This “room” is leafy and gorgeous, while a sauna and shower are tucked away here as well. This will prove a much-used area and connects well with the family room.
As well as a double carport with an intercom at garden-gate entry, there’s a double garage with storeroom and an adjoining carpeted study. Another huge garage is accessed separately.
Enough can’t be said about the gardens and courtyards, which are an absolute delight. There’s also a raised terrace overlooking the glass-fenced pool and accessible from the family room.
Do not miss this one … it’s special.
