WERRIBEE 1 Nadda Court, 3030 PRDnationwide: 9742 7557

Price: $555,000 – $585,000

It’s little wonder the owners of this classic of the ’70s say they are sad to leave because the combination of sweet location and family-friendly floor plan is a surefire winner. Built by well-respected local Roland Wade, the house faces the leafy environs of the Werribee River and fantastic walking/ bike paths that take one on a short jaunt to the main street. Werribee has several impressive pockets and this is certainly one of them, where a sense of seclusion and limited passing traffic has a priceless cachet. Beyond gorgeous ornamental gardens that show off their beauty through the


Private sale

seasons, the house has an entry into a tiled hallway where the exposed bricks (now painted in varying Tuscan tones throughout) are the first of the ’70s hallmarks on display. A right turn then takes one to a carpeted study (or fifth bedroom), a laundry with workbench, and a powder room that services the next-door main bedroom. White bifold plantation shutters in here juxtapose nicely with a latte-toned feature wall, and there’s a walk-through robe to a compact open en suite with basin and shower. The remaining three bedrooms (two with split-system and robe) are upstairs, as is a

bathroom with retro wall tiles straight from the ’70s. Multi-angled dormer ceilings add a definite charm, and river views come into their own up here. Expansive, well-zoned living areas are a strength of this place. One is a huge family room where the back gardens are seen in their full glory and form a backdrop to a gabled pergola above brick paving – a really serene and pretty place in which to relax and entertain. Another is a big rumpus room (accessed from the meals area) with exposed bricks all around and a door to the front porch. The kitchen has white-painted timber



cupboards topped with timber-trimmed laminate, Simpson dual wall ovens, 900mm electric cooktop and a Smeg dishwasher – and river views from the sink. The abutting meals area has a Coonara wood heater which sends warmth throughout, and there’s zoned gas heating as back-up. On a corner block of about 665 square metres, the house also has a single garage (accessed through side gates) in a superb backyard, a remote-controlled double garage, two water tanks with about 7000-litre capacity and a sprinkler system.
