Fancy watching the annual fireworks over Melbourne’s city skyline from your elevated front deck or full-length verandah – as well as from inside rooms? That’s what this pristine property offers as one highlight among many.

Behind solar-powered gates, on 0.4 fully landscaped hectares, this elegant house is a cracker for discerning families who value seclusion – although Calder Freeway entry, with Collins Street reached in 35 minutes, is just down the road.

Introducing the house is a foyer, with a grey-carpeted study through double doors to the right and another set opposite to a large lounge room which has a bay window dressed in quality sand-toned eyelet drapes. Wall paint is pearl-grey throughout and every inch is as fresh as a daisy.

Those skyline views aren’t missed out on in the sleek kitchen and adjoining dining and casual meals areas. A Caesarstone island bench able to seat four, white vinyl-wrap cabinetry and a step-in pantry have streamlined appeal, while Westinghouse dishwasher and 900mm cooker add to the amenity.

A sound-proof theatre room through double doors is a large space for relaxing while watching the latest movies.

Three fitted bedrooms are in the eastern ‘wing’, as are the laundry with triple-door closet, a separate toilet and sparkling main bathroom.

Ahead of the entry foyer, the main bedroom has built-in and walk-in robes, plus a dual-basin en suite with corner tub.

A north-facing full-length pergola out back has a glassed-in suntrap at one end, as well as attached retractable awning sheltering a paved patio. Gardens out here rise up a slope and feature pig face tumbling down, silver birches and a pittosporum hedge – no mowing required.

The sweeping lawn out front gives kids oodles of room to kick around a footy, while trimmed hedges flank wide steps up to the house which is set well back from the street for added privacy.

Other drawcards include a 7-star energy rating, double glazing throughout, a 5kW solar system (zero bills), zoned ducted heating, split-system, security system, a 50,000 litre water tank with pump for gardens and toilets, garden and tool sheds and an extended double garage with internal access to a mud/cloak room.

Visiting kangaroos are a free attraction.
