Spanning four levels, from basement to attic, this utterly unique abode is packed to the rafters with quaint character that continues the Tudor styling of the facade. And the block of about 3410 square metres contains numerous outdoor attractions families and entertainers will value.
Let’s start with the basement. As well as a bedroom with walk-in robe and a bathroom, there’s a huge entertainment room with hefty exposed beams stained dark in the Tudor style. Accessing the glass-framed swimming pool, it has a bar atop the same bricks that appear elsewhere in the house as accent walls, as well as a wood heater. The laundry is also down here.

The ground floor is all about the kitchen at the centre of lounge (with fireplace) and dining areas with hardwood floorboards and the casual meals area. The kitchen, with dark-stained timber cupboards sporting beaten-copper trims (another Tudor reference), has a dishwasher, wall oven and electric cooktop.
Heading up to the first floor, there are four fitted bedrooms and a modern, skylit bathroom. The main bedroom, with split-system and ceiling fan, has a walk-in robe and an en suite with an extra-big shower.
All bedrooms have stained ceiling beams, along with floorboards in the same rich jarrah shade as in other rooms.
Finally, the nearly 12-metre-long attic has floorboards and one of several air-conditioners. It would make a great retreat space or hobby room – or even a fifth bedroom.
Next to the in-ground pool, encircled by sealed aggregate, there’s a great summer house which sits amid landscaped gardens. Neighbouring this is a freestanding sauna room, big enough for a whole gang, and with a window taking in fernery views.
Other noteworthy features are a large steel shed and a double garage with internal access. The centre of Melton is a 10-minute drive away, as are primary and secondary schools, and Toolern Vale General Store is within a five-minute stroll.
