On the main boulevard of ever-popular Westlakes estate, this Victorian-inspired residence has an imposing kerbside presence which reflects the grand proportions of internal spaces.

With its five bedrooms and four living areas, it’s a true family home providing spread-out or cosy-up spaces as the mood strikes.

Down the garden path, around a birdbath and under a bullnose verandah, entry is into a generous foyer with a carpeted staircase ahead. Through an archway to the left, there’s a grey-carpeted lounge room with bay window and the same white wall paint as seen all through – the ideal space for adults to retreat when entertaining.

Through a door at hall’s end, the tiled living hub emerges; this has a bay window defining the dining area and a set of multi-paned bifolds to a carpeted rumpus room where the family can gather around the TV, away from hustle and bustle.

The spacious kitchen has return bench able to seat four, a stack of timber cabinetry, a corner pantry, dishwasher and gas cooktop and stainless-steel wall oven.

A tucked away fifth bedroom/study neighbours a powder room and accesses a shower under the roof of a remote-controlled drive-through double garage.

A spacious carpeted living room upstairs is flanked each side by four fitted bedrooms and the main bathroom with corner tub; the toilet is separate. Two storage closets and ceiling fans in bedrooms add to the amenity.

The huge main bedroom, with bay window facing the street, has a walk-in robe and an en suite.

Ducted heating and evaporative cooling take care of Melton’s summer heat and winter cold.

Coloured concrete extends out from under a covered pergola and around to the side so there’s ample room for entertainment.

There’s plenty of lawn for kids and pets to have a romp, a garden shed sits in a corner right at the back and leafy gardens are easy-care. The block is about 800 square metres.

Two primary schools are a kilometre or less away, Woodgrove shopping centre two minutes by car, and the Arthur Westlake Memorial Reserve within a five-minute stroll.
