Edwardian charmer in Williamstown

Coastal living meets a polished family residence that’s not afraid to defy expectations.

Set in a sprawling garden, white weatherboards and a deep verandah with timber fretwork reflect this abode’s Edwardian roots.

The neutral interior palette of earth-hued carpets, dune-coloured timber floors and pale walls, exudes spades of warmth. Chandeliers and high ceilings meet pared-back window adornments and many modern touches.

The house opens to a bright entry with a circular stained-glass window, a smart vintage lightfitting and timber lacework.

Near the centre of the residence, the kitchen offers a separate island bench where ample modern and traditional cabinetry blends perfectly.

An open plan living zone, comprising meals and family area, is backdropped by beautiful timber floors and multi-paned white windows.

Glass doors lead out to the paved entertainment zone that’s overhung with shade sails – the perfect place for barbecues or outdoor get-togethers. The garden is neat, with mature trees providing privacy and a large lawn offering ample playspace for children. There is also a store shed which could be adapted into a workshop.

Three bedrooms, including the main, lead off the entry. Two of the bedrooms have built-in robes and windows that draw in plenty of natural light. There’s a bathroom nearby, finished in attractive natural tiles and with a shower over the bath.

A second bathroom is integrated with a laundry and sits near the light-filled fourth bedroom, that also overlooks the backyard.

A double carport and rear laneway access are additional conveniences, as are a spilt-system, ducted heating and a study.

There’s always time to enjoy sea and sand with Williamstown Beach just a stroll away, while Williamstown High school and Williamstown Hospital are also within walking distance.
