Industrial style on show in new Geelong West residence
There’s a distinct mix of old and new about the two-storey residence at 102 Elizabeth St, Geelong West.
For starters, Buxton agent Ben Riddle said it’s brand new and ready for new owners to make their own mark.
The architecture encapsulates that blend of industrial and contemporary that works so well in a neighbourhood like Geelong West, he said.
The mix of materials from reclaimed bricks, timber cladding to cement render and bluestone pavers create an aesthetic appeal.
The two-storey, three-bedroom residence goes to auction on July 3 at 11.30am. Price hopes are from $1.29 million to $1.35 million.
Inside, European oak engineered floors, high ceilings and a contemporary colour palette set the theme.
“You don’t see too many new builds at the top end of the market,” Mr Riddle said.
“It’s high spec, high quality and has multiple living zones and everything is top notch and generous,” he said.
“It’s been designed to accommodate a family home on a smart block, with the separation of living spaces.
“But also downsizers with the master bedroom strategically being on the ground floor.
“It does allow people to live on the one level but then use upstairs as they feel content.”
The main entry leads to foyer, where internal access from the double garage and the main bedroom opposite also meet.
The bedroom comes with a walk-in wardrobe, an ensuite and extra storage beneath the stairs.
Beyond the entry, a sliding barn door opens to reveal this home’s crowning glory — the main, open-plan kitchen, lounge and dining room.
Double glass sliding doors that lead to a large pergola outside optimises the northern aspect.
Additional glass draws more sunlight, while an opposing glass sliding door opens to a southside courtyard.
In the centre, the galley kitchen is both understated and feature packed.
Think Bosch appliances such as a semi-integrated dishwasher, two ovens, a 900mm five-burner gas cooktop and a rangehood hidden in overhead cabinetry.
For storage, there’s plenty of drawers and cupboards, including a pantry.
Meanwhile, access is provided to a butler’s pantry-slash-laundry which has separate access to the courtyard and nearby service yard.
The accommodation is also handy, with two more bedrooms upstairs offering built-in wardrobes.
These rooms share a central bathroom (with a freestanding bath, frameless shower and vanity) and a loungeroom with north-facing windows.
The six-star energy rated home has ducted heating and cooling and gas-boosted solar hot water.
“I think it’s a really good combination that reflects that inner urban west market,” Mr Riddle said.
“It’s got a little bit of an industrial feel but its still modern and elegant and it’s got a bit of flair and something different for the area, it’s a nice combination.”
