Several stylish architectural features combine in the facade of this two-bedroom, double-storey townhouse.

There’s the steel roof, the chocolate-coloured bricks, the blue rendering and the weatherboard. But there’s a great deal more than just the exterior that first-home buyers and investors will find attractive.

Inside, the walls are tinted a fresh white, while timber veneer floors add a durable and low-maintenance touch.

A sunny study nook at the entrance overlooks the front yard and tree-lined street – the ideal spot for anyone who wants to escape for a read or a simple nap. From here, a brief corridor leads to the rear where a chic and cosy kitchen is outfitted with a glass splashback, storage cupboards, pantry, gas cooktop and stainless-steel dishwasher.

This zone merges seamlessly with a bright living room where residents and visitors can kick back at the end of the day, assured of seasonal comfort under a wall-mounted split-system.

Just past a glass sliding door at the back of the room there’s a strip of paved patio and an intimate courtyard shuttered from the outside world by timber and cream Colorbond fences.

Upstairs, two large and light-filled bedrooms have charcoal carpets underfoot, sleek ceiling fans above and windows that aim to keep the privacy of residents firmly preserved. The main bedroom has a walk-in robe, while the other room has a built-in clothes cupboard with mirrored sliding doors.

Nearby, the central bathroom is a picture of simplicity with mocha-toned wall and floor tiles and fresh white cabinets. Back on the ground floor, a laundry makes wash days an easy affair and a separate toilet is nearby.

Victoria University’s Sunshine campus is 10 minutes by foot, while the shopping and foodie delights of Hampshire Road are within easy reach, as is Sunshine train station.
