The sleek kitchen has benches – including a servery – in earthy-toned granite, a tiled splashback, walk-in pantry, Miele dishwasher, Westinghouse 900mm gas cooktop and dual wall ovens.
The family/meals space has two sets of french doors, one to a covered side deck and another to a timber deck under a slatted pergola at the back. Star jasmine and a banksia rose wind over the pergola, an example of the beautiful and romantic cottage style found in the gardens out here.
Beds are planted with old-fashioned blooms such as snapdragons and lavender; a French rose climbs up a wall; thriving gardenias bring their fragrance; and, behind a high timber screen, numerous potted olive trees march along a side fence.

The property, within an easy walk of Werribee train station and Watton Street shops and eateries, has ducted heating, evaporative cooling, a garden shed and double garage.
