This dual-storey period home, strutting its lacework, cheeky red door, original chimney pots and bluestone fence footings, looks mighty inviting kerbside, but it’s the startling indoor revamp that puts it at the top of the tree.
Mind you, the locale isn’t to be sneezed at either – a five-minute stroll from Willy beach and Gloucester and Bayview reserves, as well as prestigious Williamstown High School and Bayside P-12 College.

The abode’s top floor is dedicated to retreat, whether to the theatre room or the adjoining living/fourth bedroom which has a long desk. Dramatically angled ceilings with recessed skylights and panes of glass and white wall paint (as all through) combine to great effect. That’s also true of the upstairs bathroom with its beautiful tiling and fittings.
Downstairs, the architectural effect is even punchier in the floorboarded kitchen-dining zone, while two bedrooms and a lounge room along the entry hall pay tribute to the original era.
The carpeted lounge room, with gas log fire and built-in bookshelves, has a bay window with beautiful leadlight transoms, the same as in each bedroom.
The main of these two, neighbouring its own retreat area, has a trio of built-in robes, and a stunning fully tiled dual-basin en suite. Another bedroom has french doors to the glorious outdoor spaces.
All-white and as sleek as can be, the rockin’ kitchen has European appliances and plenty of cred as an entertainer’s space.
Matching the main kitchen for class, an outdoor kitchen (with wine fridge) sits under a gabled Vergola, with lavish paving extending out to a timber deck under a shadesail. The entire backyard is beautifully dedicated to entertainment/relaxation, with various panels displaying artistic works, timber battens and backlit vertical gardens: chic personified.
Many more perks are on board, with a visit to absorb details highly recommended.
