Two streets back from the waterfront and within walking distance of Westbourne Grammar, other schools and Douglas Parade shopping, this property is perfectly positioned for a family wanting to settle in to the thriving community and enjoy vibrant Newport life.

The single-fronted facade, tastefully restored, is set back from the street allowing for a neat front garden.

The decked return porch is deep enough for an outdoor setting and sets a welcoming tone that continues throughout.

On entry, two original bedrooms have been beautifully restored and have hardwood flooring and floor-to-ceiling wardrobes.

The living room is downlit and carpeted, with a square entryway leading to the kitchen-meals area.

In the cleverly designed galley-style kitchen, deep Calcutta gold marble benchtops set against ample white cabinetry and black tapware are current and stylish. Stainless-steel appliances include a 900mm oven and six-burner gas stovetop.

The bathroom boasts more beautiful deep marble, a frameless shower that runs the entire length of the back wall and clever towel storage. Floor-to-ceiling Italian tiles look great set against the black hardware. The third bedroom is off the large dining area, which has room for an eight-seater table for those who love to entertain. A clever study nook has been included in the design. In here, designer light fittings complement the superb renovation found throughout.

Past the laundry where similar finishes continue, is a deep decked pergola with a light fan and plenty of room for an eight-seater outdoor dining table and barbecue. No expense has been spared with the finishing flourishes – such as 2pac panelling on the back of the house and custom-built timber detail creating air flow on hot days.

The backyard, larger than expected, is L-shaped, making room for children’s play equipment and a large, discreet shed.

The side drive allows for off-street parking for four cars and could easily be converted to a tandem garage.

The needs of modern-day families are eloquently fulfilled by this well-renovated residence.
