Here is a property where the neo-federation style is done well.

Set half a block from the bay and Bay Trail West, Williamstown Beach is not much further.

 

4 Rifle Range Drive, Williamstown VIC 3016

 

The facade is timeless and appealing all in white.

A large foyer is welcoming and grand thanks to great light, high ceilings and timber flooring.

The sitting room is large and very pretty. It has a working castiron fireplace with an ornate period-style timber surround.

The high ceilings continue, with deep skirting boards, ornate architraves and timber floors offering that look and feel Victorian-era architecture is known for.

The kitchen creates a mood that suits this property’s modern-cum-period style perfectly.

Matte black appliances are set against timber cabinetry, painted with on-trend paint hue Purebred. Set against gloss black subway tiling, it looks really smart.

There’s loads of room for a large dining suite, the current furniture set next to a large window with a view of the in-ground pool.

The more casual lounge area is opposite the kitchen, and has another fireplace that is in good working order. A split-system takes care of temperature control on warmer days.

Timber french doors open to the paved outdoor area, which beckon in the summer months.

The slate tiling has been laid in a squared pattern, adding a subtle point of difference and an element of classy texture to the space.

The frameless glass safety fence divides the entertaining zone from the solar-heated in-ground pool and generous lawn. A large, deep grey shed offers great storage and blends into the landscaping.

Back inside and upstairs, find four large bedrooms with hardwood floors, fan lights and built-in robes. The main bedroom has a bay window and access to the front balcony, where sea views can be enjoyed.

Both bathrooms are in excellent condition, with federation-style tiling and custom cabinetry. The main bathroom has a claw-foot bath.
