This contemporary Newtown home is party and position perfect.

SUNSHINE laden spaces and light and bright living are the order of the day at this fun-filled and stylish Newtown residence.

There’s a lot of fine living to be done throughout the 353sq m allotment at 84 Skene St, and it’s fair to say you’ll be set for the festive season.

The wide and welcoming entry sets the right tone, and new owners can salute the sun from multiple indoor and outdoor spaces.

Wisons, Geelong agent James Wilson said 84 Skene St, Newtown has been enjoyed as a family home for the past 10 years.

Wilsons, Geelong agent James Wilson has the listing, with a price guide of $1.3m.

He said super entertaining options and sparkling bay views await the lucky new owners.

“This lovely home is set on a rear, north-facing allotment offering privacy and position,” Mr Wilson said.

Speaking of, how’s this for a (main) bedroom with a view?

The main bedroom is a room with a view.

Upstairs, parents have their own private retreat with a balcony that takes in spectacular views back over Geelong, plus a luxe ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.

And, it’s almost like there’s a second main suite, as bedroom two also has a walk-in wardrobe.

Look at that lovely light.

Bedroom three is here too, while the fourth bedroom is downstairs, near the entry.

With the house so heavily focused on entertainment, it’s little surprise that three bathrooms and a powder room feature on the floorplan.

When Monday comes around and all the noise has died down, the study/home office area should be great space to tick off the work to-do list.

In the back section of the ground level, the dual-sided feature gas log fire is a feast for the eyes.

The kitchen is a relaxing space.

It anchors and divides the space in the open-plan kitchen, dining and living zone and will bring joy from every angle.

Thoughtful family living on a manageable allotment.

Outside, things are equally impressive.

There’s a decked entertainment area that has a built-in barbecue and seating (hello, spring and summer nights), and the oh-so private backyard.

A gas-heated lap pool with a spa is here, too.

The picture-perfect backyard.

Nestled in along the side of the house, it’s perfectly positioned to allow parents to keep a watchful eye on the outdoor happenings from the kitchen and living zone.

Privacy and security are at the forefront here, with a security system, C-Touch central lighting control and a double garage with internal and rear access directly to the pool – great for when the kids knock off from school.

Mr Wilson said the location in leafy, inner-city Newtown meant that new owners could walk to shops and cafes, as well as primary and secondary schools.

And, when footy’s back you can leave the car at home and stroll to GMHBA Stadium to cheer on the Cats.

The position also allows for easy access the Surf Coast and Bellarine Peninsula, to make the most of the wider region’s beaches, wineries and relaxed coastal lifestyle.

Ceiling fans, hydronic heating and a ducted vacuum system are the icing on a very sleek and stylish Newtown cake.
