Beyond the picket fence with Edwardian-era timber fascia, pitched roof and restored period-style windows, this California bungalow is utterly charming and oh-so Williamstown.

The decked front porch and country-style bricked path and sideway frames the bungalow perfectly.

 

105 Stevedore Street, Williamstown, 3016

 

When you swing open the front door, hardwood floors are lit up by downlights down the hall.

Two generous bedrooms, including the main, flank the entryway. Both are carpeted and have period fireplaces, ceiling details, split-systems and built-in robes. The main bedroom has a tasteful contemporary en suite.

The third bedroom is at the rear of the house and is also carpeted and has a split-system and built-in robes. The original restored windows with blockout curtains and matching pelmet add charm.

The kitchen evokes the Edwardian aesthetic through soft-closing country-style cabinetry, painted to complement the houses’ exterior colour scheme.

A glass splashback and white composite stone benchtops are key elements of a large and well-designed kitchen, with twin Bosch ovens, an integrated dishwasher six-burner gas cooktop with stainless-steel rangehood part of the renovations.

The main bathroom has period-style tiling, a timber corner-set vanity and a single shower.

Hardwood floors continue into the open-plan downlit meals and lounge area. This area receives plenty of natural light thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows and timber and glass doors opening to a decked alfresco area to the side, and to cafe-style timber and glass doors at the rear leading to a back deck and a spacious concreted area for entertaining.

The single garage is accessed via rear lane access.

Within a quick stroll of Douglas Parade shopping, this house is also a short walk from the water’s edge where you can meander down with coffee in hand.
