There’s a touch of the seaside in this beguiling California bungalow-style house and it begins even before the front door.

There are the dune-like colours of the brick and weatherboard panels, and the coastal-scrub tones of the pebbles and shrub lining the driveway and garden path. Beyond dual, thick-footed pillars, there is the elegant yet relaxed atmosphere residing in the house itself.

To the right of the entrance hall, there’s a main bedroom, followed by a lounge room, both of which have earth-toned carpets that cradle the feet. From here, ash blonde timber floors course down a brief corridor to an open living zone that also integrates a meals area and kitchen.

Glass splashbacks paired with taupe walls, cabinets and sea shell-toned surfaces continue the coastal theme in the light-filled kitchen, while pendant lights dangling above the island bench and a generous butler’s pantry ensures the domain stays refined and trim.

Just outside the living zone, the paved barbecue area melds with a landscaped backyard that has neat gravel and low, sprouting shrubs along the Colorbond fence line and provides ample room to enjoy the sun.

In the front-facing main bedroom, warm carpets keep the space cosy, while the windows are adorned with breezy curtains and stylish metal rods and there’s also a walk-in robe and a smart en suite.

The other bedrooms have views of the rear and side yard and have built-in robes, while sharing a central bathroom. There are extra-large floor and wall tiles in this sanctuary-like space and polished fittings include a voluminous, free-standing tub for luxurious immersions.

A double garage with secure internal door, roller blinds at many of the windows, ducted heating and cooling add to the feeling of ease in this lovely house.

With the coast some distance away, it isn’t exactly seaside living, but being located in the middle of a well-established community, puts a vast range of facilities nearby. It’s just three minutes by foot to Bridge Road Children and Community Centre, Melton Athletics Club and a short, five-minute drive to local primary schools.
