As beautifully maintained as it looks kerbside, this one is smart all over.
The owner-built Victoriana tribute has stepped cornices on 2.7-metre ceilings, rosettes, stepped skirts and lightfittings that reference the era.
Classy jarrah floorboards put on a fine show, carpet is soft grey and windows come with a mix of venetian and rollerblinds or lacy sheers.

The property includes a great brick-veneer granny flat with carpeted sitting area and gas log fire, a kitchen with a stack of storage and bathroom/European laundry.
The main residence has floorboards beginning in the hallway and flowing into a large open lounge room with gas log fire and traditional surround, then through to the expansive, light-filled living hub.
First up is the big kitchen. Great for family cooks and entertainers, it has a stack of hardwood cabinetry, granite benches, walk-in pantry and stainless-steel mod-cons. The laundry has a closet.
The four fitted bedrooms run down the eastern side of the house, as do the main bathroom and separate toilet. The main bedroom, with a bay window and designer wallpaper accent wall, has a walk-in robe and dual-basin en suite.
The dining zone has french doors to a very spacious gabled pergola with concrete underfoot, cafe blinds for shelter and a wood-fired pizza oven to make summertime entertainment very tasty.
A second set of french doors opens from the sitting area to a fully enclosed deck with a four-person spa – a great little spot for partying or just pure relaxation. Glass sliders open from there to the backyard, which has a good patch of lawn, landscaping and an 18,000-litre water tank.
The remote-controlled extended double garage has drive-through access to the backyard.
The block of about 830 square metres is in an area bounded by Tarneit, Hogans and Heaths roads, putting it convenience central and a property hot-spot.
