Splash into it: 3 Lawson Road, Melton South, 3338

By Carole Levy

Summertime is looking mighty fine at this property where a fenced solar/gas-heated salt pool, as well as an eight-person separate inground spa, set up a family for plenty of fun times. Couple this with a covered pergola behind the double carport door and, voila, outdoor entertainment for the gang is accomplished.

The house has been refreshed and updated, but window, architraves and skirts framed in natural timber remain true to the original home, as do the floor tiles and archways.

Entry is to a foyer with coat closet, to the left of which is a dual-zone grey-carpeted lounge-dining room which bends around to the kitchen.

In the abutting casual meals area, there’s a long bar offset from the brekkie bench and running under a window – so clever for kids to use on busy mornings, or even do their homework with parent in earshot.

The kitchen has top and bottom timber cupboards (a couple with leadlight panes), a wide fridge recess, white splashback tiles and a dishwasher, underbench oven and gas cooktop.

A generous European laundry, as well as a powder room, are incorporated into a vast family room flowing around from the meals area. It has a glass slider to a landscaped yard and pool beyond.

The main bedroom, off the entry way, has a walk-in robe and en suite, while two more bedrooms share a hallway with spruced-up main bathroom and separate toilet.

Each bedroom has a ceiling fan, which supplements evaporative cooling and two Rinnai energy-saver gas heaters.

Perks include LED downlights in living areas, monitored alarm, NBN connection and an underground watering system for the front gardens. The carport has a remote-controlled door and other off-street parking is lavish.

Bill Cahill Reserve is around the corner and Coles and the station are five minutes away, while both Staughton College and Melton South Primary School are two minutes – by bike or car.
