From a soaring turret, to a picture perfect street presence — this storybook-like designed house sets the scene for big family living in Craigieburn.
Barry Plant’s Damien Crivelli said while you should not judge a home by its facade, the 16 Windrock Ave home wowed inside and out.
The 803sq m block accommodates the main house, which spans about 460sq m (50 squares) inside, as well as a manicured garden.
“I’m getting people coming to look at it from Preston, Coburg and saying that Craigieburn wasn’t on their shopping list, but after seeing the photos of this one they had to come and have a look,” Mr Crivelli said.
“The overall style of the home is very intriguing.”
Step past the weatherboard facade and sweeping stairs make an immediate statement.
To the left, a study has plenty of natural light, thanks to the turret’s ground-level windows.
But continue into the home and an open-plan family room, meals area and country-style kitchen with stone benchtops will be the heart of daily life.
With a walk-in pantry, tiled splashbacks and extensive storage, it is positioned for easy access to the home’s outdoor entertainment hub.
A main bedroom with a walk-in wardrobe and ensuite, plus a guest bedroom rounds out the ground floor.
Upstairs, a rumpus room makes the most of the turret’s second-floor windows, while two more bedrooms complete the floorplan.
Then there is the triple garage that opens at the rear to a driveway extension with another garage, currently converted to a bungalow with its own bathroom, heating and cooling.
“It’s definitely a one of a kind in Craigieburn, and is one of the best homes,” Mr Crivelli said. “It would cost you in excess of $1m to build today.”
On the high side of the road and in a corner spot opposite a park, it is a matter of moments from the Hume Freeway and close to local schools and shops as well.
