Built on robust foundations, this home has been updated with all modern technology, is stunning to look at and is only metres from Lake Wendouree.

While the original home is cream brick, an added second storey and extension has been rendered outside in light sand. In the style of many grand homes of its era, the front porch is a semi-circle showing off the double front doors to great effect.

Recently re-painted inside in a neutral palate, the home has also been re-carpeted in plush warm pile. New timber floorboards are stylish and add texture.

Downstairs the master bedroom has a walk-in robe leading through to the light en suite. Opposite, a spacious office could make a fifth bedroom. There are French doors and front windows made up of small glazed panels.

Timber floorboards continue through to the modern kitchen and light-filled meals area. A walk-in pantry is a bonus in the kitchen as are the quality stainless steel appliances. The large family living space has a cosy corner and built-in cabinetry. Two sets of double glass doors lead out to the decked alfresco. A peaked roof covers half the deck making it perfect for any weather. A landscaped yard still has room for active kids and includes a basketball ring, synthetic pitch and grassy area.

Upstairs makes a fantastic children’s retreat with three good sized bedrooms, all with built-in robes. A living space is a continuation of the landing, and there is a separate bathroom with dual vanity, long mirrors plus separate powder room.

Finishing the floor is a compact study nook with built-in desk and shelving.
