A country home with city style has hit the market in Woodend.
The modern four-bedroom house at 7 Glenns Court with a $1.295 price is attracting interest from local and Melbourne buyers.
Keatings Real Estate’s Peter Wood said Woodend was a desirable area.
“Buyers are attracted to its value for money, country lifestyle and larger blocks,” he said.
“There is a little bit of everything on the market here, from units to farms.”
The Porter Davis house stands tall on a substantial 2000sq m allotment at the end of a court, near the railway station and shops.
“It’s perfect for a growing family, those who enjoy entertaining and city commuters,” Mr Wood said.
“It’s also near new, so all buyers need to do is move in and relax.”
The owners from a town near Bendigo built the house about three years ago.
“It was to be their forever home but they are now relocating to New Zealand,” Mr Wood said.
In a neighbourhood of quality properties, the house showcases bright and airy living spaces with leafy views, including a plush formal lounge room.
The back of the house has a north-easterly aspect with morning light flooding the hub of the home, which includes the family, dining and kitchen zone.
The kitchen will impress the home chef with its big waterfall-style island bench, premium Miele appliances and butler’s pantry.
A central timber staircase sweeps up to a living area, study nook, main bathroom and four bedrooms, including three with built-in wardrobes.
The main bedroom makes the ideal parents’ retreat with its indulgent ensuite, walk-through wardrobes and dressing area, and private balcony.
Other features includes a powder room, study, an integrated double garage, and a stunning outdoor entertainment area sheltered by the roofline.
The home has a six-star energy rating and luxury upgrades including Italian floor tiles, double-glazed windows and doors, solar hot water with instantaneous gas back-up, gas ducted heating, airconditioning and a monitored security system.
The low-maintenance back garden is fully fenced and pet friendly with private sitting spaces, established trees, winding paths and wonderful children’s play areas.
Mr Wood said there was strong demand for homes in Woodend and more properties were coming on the market.
“The market has levelled out,” he said.
“And if a property is priced well, it will sell.”
The median house price in Woodend lifted 20.6 per cent to $650,000 in the year to October, according to CoreLogic.
