IT’S hard to fault the street appeal of this impressive family home at Newtown.
Edgy and contemporary are the order of the day at 10 Holyrood Ave.
Built in 2021, the near-new home ticks all the boxes for modern families.
It’s been crafted to offer swish, low-maintenance living, and has great links to the outdoors.
Not just on the home front, but also away, with the Barwon River a short stroll just down the road.
Plus, new owners can wander to Barwon Edge Boathouse for a caffeine fix or bite to eat.
McGrath, Newtown agent David Cortous said the architect-designed house was equally as impressive outside as it was inside.
“It’s a stunning home, with beautiful modern architecture,” Mr Cortous said.
“Externally, the use of different materials with the matt interlocking facade, sets the property off.
“Everything has been considered and is executed with precision workmanship.”
Families with energetic children will love the fact the property also comes with an in-ground trampoline.
Safety is a key feature here, too, with a security and CCTV system, as well as an electric gate.
The home showcases style and quality throughout, with polished concrete flooring and Italian tiles.
It has a great sense of space and natural light thanks to 3m ceilings.
And, for a bit of bathroom bliss, both wet rooms have floor-to-ceiling tiles and double vanities.
Another thing that grabs your attention are the timber highlights.
From those viewed at street level, such as the bold front door, to those inside, including the striking timber staircase and cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms.
On ground level, the kitchen, meals and living room is well-suited to families, who will appreciate the way it easily opens onto the rear courtyard.
From the kitchen, that has Asko appliances and a butler’s pantry, you can see the kids play and easily serve up outdoor meals.
Guests can congregate around the island bench that’s the centrepiece of the kitchen, but the nearby feature fireplace will also get plenty of attention, especially in the coming months.
The main bedroom is set off the entry and offers a luxe ensuite, walk-in wardrobe and garden view.
A powder room and laundry complete this level.
The kids can claim the first floor of the residence.
Here, there’s three bedrooms, a large living space and balcony, plus a swish bathroom with freestanding bath.
The 346sq m block has a double garage with internal and rear access.
Other features include ducted heating, cooling and three-phase power.
As for location, Mr Cortous said the river precinct position was hard to beat.
“The location is amazing … in a beautiful tree-lined street and only a short stroll to Geelong’s best private schools,” he said.
The property is listed with price expectations of $1.35M to $1.45M.
