The past and the present have been successfully blended in this Victorian timber cottage in Williamstown.
The property, which is just a few minutes’ walk from the Douglas Parade shops and the waterfront, has been renovated over the last few years so that it offers all the conveniences of contemporary living yet still retains the charm of home firmly rooted in history of this seaside “village’’.
The façade, classic arched hallway, fireplaces and other period touches are strong nods to a bygone era yet the rear light-filled living zone, feature-ladden modern kitchen and storage friendly bedrooms evoke today’s living trends.
In keeping with the latter, there is bifold door access from the main communal living zone to rear decking for indoor-outdoor entertaining. Prospective buyers will further note that the main bedroom has an ensuite and walk-in robe while another minor bedroom offers a custom designed built-in robe. Other creature comforts include ducted heating and evaporative cooling.
There is even an outside studio which can be used as a study or retreat.
Dee Gibson, from inner western suburbs estate agency Compton Green, describes the property as a “lovely, renovated home” offering three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The Compton Green associate director says all the renovation work has been completed by the home’s current owners, who are selling so they can concentrate on a tree-change lifestyle.
“All the work has been done over the last few years,” Ms Gibson says. “It is a renovated home with a neutral palette, which is waiting for someone to step in and put their own stamp on it – to create their own style.”
Ms Gibson says 13 Hotham St will appeal to professional couples or professional couples with a small family or the beginning of a small family.
The estate agent says the property has attracted interest from “good mix of people”.
“Both locals and those outside the area have shown interest,” she says.
“It is about a 50-50 split. They can see how ideal the location is because it has immediate access to shops, schools, public transport and other amenities. And on a good run – non-peak hour – it is only 10-minute drive to Melbourne’s CBD (central business district).”
