20 Bayswater Road Newtown
WHEN FAMILY LIFE IS JUST GRAND
Secure your family’s position in a prime patch of Newtown with this grand heritage home a short stroll from quality schools and the Barwon River and close to the vibrant Pakington St precinct.
No expense has been spared in returning the circa 1920 home, set on a high corner block, to its former glory and extending it for smart contemporary living.
Clever design, quality workmanship and attention to detail ensure period features blend seamlessly with modern family design.
With multiple indoor and outdoor living areas, the home is readymade for entertaining all year round.
The lifestyle centrepiece is the north-facing, open-plan family living, dining and kitchen zone, which flows out through stacker doors to an entertainer’s courtyard.
The high-end kitchen features Caesarstone benchtops, island bench, stainless-steel appliances including two dishwashers and a 900mm oven, butler’s pantry and seemingly endless storage in soft-close cupboards and drawers.
The meals area, with original fireplace, accommodates a full-sized dining suite to enjoy evenings together, or there’s room for the family to spread out to relax in the adjoining living space.
The sun-soaked, paved entertainment area features a built-in barbecue fitted out with water, gas and electricity, speaker system, bench seating, outdoor toilet and abundant greenery, including espaliered citrus trees.
For quiet time, retire to the formal lounge with window seat or enjoy elevated views from the upstairs parents’ retreat and balcony, extending from the lights of GMHBA Stadium across to Mt Duneed.
The second storey is a private sanctuary for the master bedroom suite, with luxe ensuite and L-shaped walk-in robe, plus a second bedroom with a walk-in robe.
Downstairs are two further bedrooms with built-in robes, and a fifth bedroom with built-in desk that is ideal for guests or could double as a study/home office.
All are serviced by a central bathroom with full-size bath and separate shower.
Comfort and technology have been priorities, with data points and hydronic heating throughout, a security system, split-system units, and abundant storage including in the lined roof cavities of the house and garage.
Other highlights include blackbutt hardwood floors, plantation shutters, powder room, double garage with direct entry to the laundry/mud room and low-maintenance gardens with irrigated turf.
The home is a five-minute walk from Fyans Park Primary School and St Joseph’s College, while Fyans Park Kindergarten, Sacred Heart College and The Geelong College are in the neighbourhood.
It’s also within easy reach of cafes and shopping on Pakington St and Shannon Ave, the CBD, Geelong train station, Ring Road and Princes Freeway to Melbourne.
On weekends, walk or cycle along the river, launch a canoe at Fyans Park boat ramp or explore Queens Park, Buckley Falls and Balyang Sanctuary.
