THIS new townhouse development could be proof that Willagee has shed its working class roots and 1950’s state housing image.
Fresh and modern, the row of five homes are stylish and slick.
The four for sale have three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and are perfect for a young family looking for a close-knit community.
They’re also an option for retirees wanting a lock and leave, with room for the grandkids to sleep over.
If they need to burn off excess energy, Webber Reserve and a nature-based playground are a short walk away, and when the kids are pooped, there’s great cafes across the road for a well-earned cuppa.
The homes are similar but not identical, with living spaces on the ground floor and bedrooms on the second level.
The kitchens are compact but not cramped, with attractive light-grey stone benchtops, smoked-grey splashbacks and a heap of crisp white cupboards and drawers.
Walls of glass in the kitchen and open-plan offer nice views of the courtyard alfresco.
High limestone walls ensure this is a private space to relax and I could imagine having a delightful Sunday brunch here.
The main bedroom has walk-in-robes and double vanities in the en suite, where grey stone benchtops contrast nicely with the fresh white. The double garage has remote controlled doors and a storage area. There’s a choice of shops close at hand and Melville High School is just up the road.
