Built at the start of the Edwardian era, this piece of Williamstown history was completed in 1910. Every room has multiple ornate flourishes typical of the era.

Past the huge front garden with room for a trampoline, walk down a meandering path to the wide return front porch and enter to a wide hardwood-floored hall – typical of most larger Edwardians, as are the high ceilings and ornate timber flourishes.

The first of five bedrooms, all with built-in wardrobing, is to the left.

A generous L-shaped front living room follows. It is currently used as a library and sitting room.

Here federation-era fret-work heralds a picturesque box bay window with sash window frames – perfect for sitting with a cup of tea and watching the world go by. The fireplace with timber surround makes leaving harder.

Bedrooms two and three, all with hydronic heating, are found from here.

A contemporary main bathroom gives a nod to the Federation style with black-and-white floor tiling.

The family room has a big bay window and here there is another fireplace.

The kitchen-meals area is really the heart of the house. It boasts a superbly impressive and large kitchen. All that bench space makes a home cook slightly envious.

Here, no matter how many dishes you have on the go, there will be room.

Catering for parties will never be an issue with plenty of prep space and still spacious surrounds for guests to mingle.

Two more bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes and hydronic heating, help round out this picture of family bliss.

Renovated to be a robust and spacious residence, this is a property for a family wanting large outdoor spaces so weekends can be enjoyed without having to venture beyond.

Here you’ll find large lawned areas, a decked pergola and even room for a cubby house.

The property is just a few blocks from Williamstown Beach and its train station, so morning walks with the family down to the foreshore could become tradition, perhaps even to watch the sun rise.

Just a little further afield are Williamstown Botanic Gardens, and not further are the many attractions and happy bustle of Ferguson Street, Douglas Parade and Nelson Place.
