Quietly elegant and beautifully presented, this residence on about 760 square metres has that lovely look of settledness that comes with meticulous upkeep, and has revamped areas that underscore the feel of freshness all through. It will offer a family a comfortable indoor life and, with a giant pergola out back and Westlake Reserve’s lake very close, time outdoors will be mighty fine, too.

The entry point is a large carpeted lounge room where windows come dressed in the same quality curtains as in secondary bedrooms. Plantation shutters add a touch of glam in the main bedroom and bathrooms, and drifty sheers and blinds appear on large windows in the tiled living domain. Carpet, floor tiles and walls are pristinely warm-neutral.

The kitchen has been treated to a revamp, with the space sleek and inviting for family cooks. As well as a brekkie bench for at least four, it has terrific storage from white cupboards and a walk-in pantry, plus stainless-steel dishwasher, 900mm gas cooktop and a wall oven beneath a microwave recess.

One of the fitted bedrooms is off the lounge room, the remainder sharing a hallway with the sparkling main bathroom and separate toilet. The main bedroom of these is generously proportioned and has a walk-in robe, and a stylishly updated en suite decked out in soft-grey and white.

Ducted heating, evaporative cooling and an alarm are features indoors.

Outside, the aforementioned (Colorbond) pergola, with paving underfoot and bistro blinds, links with the backyard where a verdant buffalo grass lawn has oodles of room for romping. Attractive plantings that follow fence lines are sufficiently dense for easier upkeep, and again evoke that sense of settledness and completeness.

The property, with water tank and drive-through double garage with internal access, is four minutes by car from Wedge Park Primary School, as are Woodgrove Shopping Centre and Melton Waves leisure centre.
