Vendors Note:
Westwood View has been our family home for over 25 years and we have loved living here.

We were first attracted by its wealth of history from Melbourne's market gardening era and its original features (Minton floor, Lincrusta panelling, and open fires) as well the opportunity to put our own stamp on the place.

We also really liked that the property is a bit of a hidden gem, set back from the road and well screened by mature trees, giving us a wonderful sense of privacy as well as views over open countryside. Yet it's only a 5 minute walk into the centre of Melbourne with all its facilities and a few minutes away from the sports ground.

We have enjoyed celebrating many family milestones in our home and entertaining friends in different parts of the landscaped garden. We have loved slow cooking meals and roasts on the Rayburn. We remember the children having parties and sleepovers in the games room and practicing their car parking in the courtyard.

We have enjoyed renovating the house too, finding local artisans to sympathetically restore various original features, such as commissioning handmade tiles to repair the Minton floor, and upgrading the original sash windows with handcrafted energy efficient ones.

As our family has grown up and moved on, it's now time for us to downsize and to pass on this unique home to the next custodians. We hope that you will enjoy living here, just as much as we have.
