A rural setting, with vistas of Mt Macedon and Camels Hump, is a defining feature of this property of about 4.05 hectares – yet good coffee at the local bakery is within a 10-minute drive.

The well-constructed and beautifully presented residence is lavished with family-friendly elements, such as the four discrete living areas, and the outdoor attraction of a heated salt pool, rimmed with slip-resistant sealed aggregate on which to set up sun lounges.

And if a pony or two is on the wish list, the 12-square American-style barn, with concrete floor, includes a tack room and feed bay.

The interior colour palette is one of soft greys, with plush near-new carpet and a mix of charcoal and white roller blinds on large, light-welcoming windows.

Those four living zones comprise a tiled sitting room that has a two-way fireplace set within stacked stone; a family-meals area (which shares the benefits of the fireplace); a games room behind double doors; and a spacious rumpus room neighbouring the three secondary fitted bedrooms.

The kitchen, with oodles of hardwood cupboards and walk-in pantry, has a stone-topped island bench under a trio of smart pendants, glass splashbacks, and stainless-steel integrated microwave, a dishwasher and 900mm cooker.

A study, behind double doors from the entry hall, has parquetry flooring and easily enough space to set up individual workstations.

The extra-big main bedroom has a walk-in robe and a sparkling dual-basin en suite. As well as the main bathroom – near to laundry, separate toilet and walk-in storeroom – there’s a third bathroom, accessed externally and well placed to link with alfresco and pool areas.

The spacious integrated pergola has the pool on one side and an expanse of paving on the other.

This terrific property, with school bus at the front gate, also offers ducted heating and cooling, an extensive solar system, and a 25,000-litre tank – although town water is also connected. A double garage has internal access via the rumpus room.
