In a coveted street where the water’s edge is little more than a ball toss away and native street trees attract rainbow lorikeets, this high-calibre house with lashings of luxe will attract executive couples and discerning young families and downsizers.

Immediately behind the front door, a world of designer style emerges. Floorboards (laid all through) anchor a glorious living domain with crisp white wall paint bouncing around light, and the outdoors appears to be inside.

This latter effect is achieved via dramatic frameless glass cornerless bifolds that concertina beneath a remote-controlled louvre roof with auto-close rain sensor; a wind-down awning provides shelter from the elements when needed.

Except for pearl-grey glass splashbacks, the glam kitchen is all white. It has a waterfall stone island brekkie bench for four, soft-close overhead cabinetry and underbench drawers, a Smeg 900mm cooker and a Bosch dishwasher.

Once this beauty is absorbed, head through a slider and down a hallway where the three fitted bedrooms share bathrooms that would be right at home in a glossy mag. The laundry on the way maintains the style factor.

The en suite, with full tiling of swish Italian marble, has an oval freestanding tub, toilet with concealed plumbing, walk-in shower and a floating vanity with a long stone basin with tapware for two.

The main bathroom matches its smaller sister, but with a single basin and minus the tub – but it’s still wow.

Hydronic and ducted heating, refrigerated cooling and ceiling fans tame seaside climate. Landscaped gardens, exposed-aggregate pathways, a storage shed and an automatic gate to a boat-parking spot are part of the deal.

What else is within easy reach? Waterfront cafes, Gloucester Reserve dog park, sports fields, croquet club, marina, a choice of quality schools, and Williamstown Beach station within 900 metres.
