In Maidstone, south of Ballarat Road, older housing styles reflecting the suburb’s working class roots can barely be seen today.

Townhouses dot the streets and the neighbourhood’s redux is no more evident than at this address, where the streets which face Dobson’s Reserve are awash with new builds, including this brand new townhouse.


29 Yardley Street, Maidstone 3012


One of six, this two-bedroom property has all the finishes expected of an ultra-modern townhouse.

Enter to the hall with hardwood flooring, set against white walls. There are two carpeted bedrooms on entry. They have individual split-systems.

The main bedroom has a contemporary en suite with stone benches, a floating vanity and a frameless shower.

The second bedroom has mirrored sliding-style built-in robes.

The windows in both bedrooms incorporate frameless corner-set window features, opening up clear views of the park opposite.

There is a small laundry cleverly concealed under the staircase, saving on space. At the rear of the residence, there is a study space, the main bathroom with tiling and a separate bath and shower.

The courtyard has gate access to one off-street park, which is on title.

Up the staircase, open-plan living includes hardwood flooring, ducted heating, a stylish corner-set kitchen with a smoke-mirrored splashback set against hardwood cabinetry, stainless-steel appliances, stone benches and a good-sized meals area.

The lounge area is of a great size. Here, concertina aluminium doors open to the right, offering a large area for entertaining on the balcony during warmer months. At about nine square metres, it is generously proportioned to create a maximum of living space.

With a powder room for guests, here is a good entertainer’s package for a young professional couple looking for their first home, one close to the CBD.

With its own street frontage and at an affordable price point, this is a great property to add to your inspection list.
