With a sandy beach a mere 10-minute meander through the Botanical Gardens, and Williamstown Beach station and Willy Primary School even closer, you could easily consider this property’s locale as the gild on the lily.

And it is, but the sophistication and liveability of the townhouse also easily match up to the gilded location.

It’s all about 30 squares of luxe, with Caesarstone benches, gleaming floorboards, designer carpet, and varying ceiling angles and heights, as well as many upper windows delivering extra pops of natural light.

Starting up top, three fitted and grey-carpeted bedrooms – including the main with ensuite – cluster around a retreat space, and dual-basin main bathroom and separate toilet. French doors in the main bedroom open to a half-walled balcony.

Another fitted bedroom (or study), with a slider to a courtyard, is along the entry hall – as is a carpeted open lounge room. A smart bathroom, plus a terrific all-white laundry with masses of storage and bench capacity, are down a short passage.

The entry hall culminates in a shmick living domain, where the ceiling is dramatically vaulted above a sitting area. This space has a Jetmaster gas log fire, flanked each side by sliders to back verandah and leafy garden.

The kitchen, all-white with the exception of a soft-green glass splashback, has a waterfall stone island bench accompanied by a dishwasher and 900mm cooker.

Ducted vacuum and alarm systems, hydronic heating and zoned refrigerated cooling are enviable extras – and solar panels are on the roof.

A covered timber deck, with bistro blinds and high brick walls for shelter and privacy, is outside the dining area, while out back has a whole new feel. A verandah is the spot to sit back and take in the soothing sounds from a classic fountain at the centre of a paved patio, the espaliered greenery on fences, the ornamental trees and extravagant underplanting…it’s a treat. Just like the rest of the place.
