This lovely interpretation of a Victorian terrace house, looking as pretty as a picture on the street and with era tributes inside, makes a handsome family home – and the locale is equally enticing.

Williamstown swimming beach, High School, and Beach train station are within five, two and one-minute strolls respectively; and Nelson Place eateries are about three by car. Shopping and sporting facilities are in the immediate neighbourhood, as are the botanic gardens.
Built to exacting standards by a leading local builder, the house rocks three-metre ceilings with rosettes and embellished cornices, beautiful leadlight french doors, a corbelled archway in the wide floorboarded entry hall, patterned carpeting and elegant window treatments, as well as traditional mantelpiece surrounding a gas log fire.
The front lounge-dining room is a gracious space for more formal times and has french doors to a delightful paved courtyard with a sculptural wall planter.
Heading past the storage-rich laundry and adjacent powder room, the entry hall culminates in the main living domain with abundant natural light adding further polish to rich floorboards.
The classic black-and-white kitchen, with stone benches, offers ample storage, and dishwasher and 900mm appliances.
Upstairs are the three large bedrooms and main bathroom. One of the minor bedrooms has a walk-in robe and extra space for study/retreat; the other, a built-in. The separately zoned main bedroom is huge, with balcony access via leadlight french doors, along with walk-in robe and en suite. French doors from the living domain open to a small covered porch, with just enough space to set up a couple of chairs in the shade. This steps down to a spacious, brick-paved patio rimmed with pretty gardens and synthetic turf. Kids and pets will be just as happy out here as the adults will be when entertaining. A terrific grey-carpeted games/guest room at the bottom of the garden abuts a lock-up garage.
