Just minutes away from schools, Sunshine Hospital, Brimbank Shopping Centre and the Western Ring Road, sits this pretty family retreat. Out front are a patterned driveway and path, garden beds, a double garage and a verandah with green and primrose federation-style posts.
Just off the entrance hall, there’s the lounge room with bay windows festooned with lacey blinds, while a brick feature wall is a homely accent to the house’s green-and-white palette and high lustre floorboards. Across the foyer, the sun-dappled main bedroom has a bay window, a ceiling fan, a full en suite and walk-in robe.

Two more bedrooms on this side of the house have built-in robes, while the main bathroom is accentuated by timber cabinets, creamy subway tiles and a gleaming corner spa.
Just beyond the timber floors, ceramic tiles backdrop a calm family meals area. The adjoining kitchen has gas and electric appliances, stone-topped benches and custom-made cabinets that evoke afternoons spent baking and eating scones over a pot of tea.
A formal dining room or study adjacent to the living area, complete with fireplace and timber floors, is a cosy den for a cold day.
Just outside lace-curtained windows, and accessible from the living room’s sliding door, a paved patio meets the garage and carport to create a vast enclosed space that is perfect for play, entertaining and work.
This courtyard has its own box garden and an overhead fan, making it an oasis in the warmer months. Just outside, a barbecue area leads to a spacious and sunny back garden dotted with mature trees.
The house has evaporative cooling and gas ducted heating, and the entire property is surrounded by primrose and burgundy Colorbond and timber fences that enhance the seclusion.
