Wil­lam a place to call home

Herald Sun - Property - - DEVELOPMENT -

A NEW devel­op­ment in New­port is de­signed for buy­ers who think out­side the square.

The Wil­lam will fea­ture 15 gar­den vil­las and 24 ter­race homes set around a land­scaped pi­azza-style podium level.

“The de­sign has an owne­roc­cu­pier fo­cus, as op­posed to a lot of mod­ern projects be­ing built around Mel­bourne that have got more of an in­vestor fo­cus,” Domain Hill Prop­erty Group man­ag­ing direc­tor Peter Cahill said. “They are not your con­ven­tional apart­ment stock. That was a very de­lib­er­ate de­sign di­rec­tion so that we’re not flog­ging just an­other apart­ment like the three tril­lion al­ready around Mel­bourne.”

The sin­gle-storey gar­den vil­las will be at ground level, along with the devel­op­ment’s car park. Most vil­las have two bed­rooms, with a sin­gle onebed­room de­sign still for sale.

They will fea­ture an open- plan kitchen, meals and fam­ily area open­ing to a deck and pri­vate court­yard. There’s a choice of one or two bath­rooms.

The Wil­lam sales manager Kelly Whitten said many of the vil­las would face north to­wards neigh­bour­ing Arm­strong Re­serve.

The views from the ter­race homes also ap­peal.

“Many have fan­tas­tic views. From the top level you are ei­ther look­ing over the bay, the West Gate Bridge, the city, the Mel­bourne Star ob­ser­va­tion wheel or al­ter­na­tively north into the park,” Ms Whitten said. “Oth­ers have a rooftop look­ing back over Wil­liamstown. There are re­ally no bad vis­tas.”

Most ter­race homes are two lev­els, with an open-plan kitchen, meals and living area lead­ing to a bal­cony on the lower level and two bed­rooms, an en­suite and bath­room up­stairs.

There are also a few sin­gle- storey ter­race homes and two 158.3sq m, three-bed­room de­signs with a rooftop deck.

De­signed by ar­chi­tects KUD, the Paine St project has been popular with young buy­ers and down­siz­ers, many from the lo­cal area or keen to re­turn to it.

On the site of an old tim­ber yard, Wil­lam is a 10-minute walk to New­port rail­way sta­tion and The Strand which hugs the wa­ter­front to Wil­liamstown.

Mr Cahill said Wil­lam of­fered ex­cel­lent value for money in an area where house val­ues typ­i­cally ranged from $750,000 to $1.25 mil­lion.

Ter­race home prices range from $725,000 to $1.35 mil­lion and gar­den vil­las range from $495,000 to $695,000.
