8 Villamanta Street Geelong West
TAKE YOUR PLACE IN HISTORY
Join an exclusive Geelong neighbourhood with this double-fronted Victorian-era brick cottage in historically significant Villamanta St. The wide home, circa 1853, retains its distinctive 12-pane sash windows and gable roof and is part of the area once known as Little Scotland. And with a north-facing entertainment-friendly yard and proximity to Pakington St and the city centre, it’s also well-placed to enjoy a modern lifestyle. The home combines its heritage origins with contemporary updates including an open-plan kitchen, meals and living zone and a large light and bright bathroom. The kitchen, which welcomes the northern sun for warmth all year round, boasts quality appliances, including a Bora induction cooktop with in-built extractor fan, Miele dishwasher, stone benchtops and loads of storage options in soft-close cupboards and drawers. Striking distressed floors and an open fireplace in the adjoining living area, maintain the home’s heritage links. The three bedrooms, two with built-in robes, also boast easy-care timber floors and are serviced by the spacious bathroom, also with a northern aspect. The centrally positioned third bedroom could also double as a formal lounge or home office. The bathroom features a Victoria and Albert volcanic stone bath, frameless shower that opens out for walk-in access, and plantation shutters. Step out to the sun-soaked private yard with abundant space for alfresco dining and for kids to play safely.
A separate rear building housing a laundry and toilet could be transformed into a private home office or studio with garden outlook. Off-street parking for two cars and a driveway into the backyard is accessed from McNicol St to the side of the property. Other highlights include open fireplaces in two bedrooms, in-ceiling storage, panel heating and a split-system unit. Walk to shops and dining on Pakington St in Geelong West and Newtown, The Gordon TAFE, West and Johnstone parks, Geelong train station, Geelong Library and Heritage Centre, CBD offices and shops and the waterfront. The home is zoned to Ashby Primary School and close to Matthew Flinders Girls’ Secondary College, St John’s Lutheran School and a host of Newtown private schools. It’s also within easy reach of the Ring Road, while nearby La Trobe Terrace takes you to the Princes Freeway to Melbourne.
