Breathtaking views of Port Phillip Bay and the city skyline are an everyday event at this classy, contemporary residence built by the high-end Bourakis outfit.

It perches literally steps from the water, in one of the most appealing seaside locations in Melbourne, with the cafes, shops and quality schools within easy reach adding further attraction.

The top floor is entirely dedicated to the living domain and a tucked-away powder room. Polished floorboards are a warm counterfoil to white wall paint, white roman blinds dress windows (these are all through), and a gas log fire delivers cosiness when skies and ocean merge into grey.

The kitchen, with a stack of storage, has black granite benches, white splashback tiles, and Blanco stainless-steel appliances. The laundry is downstairs. An idyllic spot for summer brekkies and evening tipples, a spacious balcony – accessed via french doors – is where the immediacy of air and the sound of gulls hammer home the luxury of the location.

Another outdoor area is the rear paved courtyard, rimmed with plantings and a good size for setting up a barbecue and seating.

Back inside, the ground floor has the three carpeted bedrooms, the all-white main bathroom, under-stair storage and laundry. Two of the bedrooms have built-in robes, while the large main has a walk-through robe and en suite, as well as french doors to the front porch – another spot to soak up the waterfront ambience.

Other ingredients at this winning property include ducted heating and cooling and ducted vacuum, as well as a basement garage.
