DELICATE details and sleek features have created a modern home in Geelong West that has come a long way in three years.
Instead of being retained as office space in 2016 the house at 3 Villamanta St has been transformed into a stunning family home in a sought after location.
A lot of work went into essentially rebuilding the home to create a flow that would suit a family.

Every detail in the house was well thought out and the quality is evident.
From the textured look tiles in the bathrooms that were imported from overseas to the white polished concrete floor that looks like water in the distance, this house will impress.
The symmetry of the home is evident from the outset where a double fronted facade in grey and white tones stands out.
Inside, polished spotted gum floorboards are laid in a herringbone design leading into the home.
From a distance you can see where the floorboards meet the white polished concrete floors with underfloor hydronic heating and it looks like water, an impressive detail for an impressive house.
Four bedrooms and the main bathroom are positioned off the traditional hallway including the main bedroom with ensuite and walk-in wardrobe.
Two of the other bedrooms also have walk-in wardrobes while the last could be used as a guest room.
All of these rooms have period features throughout with modern touches. At the end of the hallway, which has a door to separate the sleeping and living quarters, is where the modern extension comes to life.
The open-plan kitchen, meals area and loungeroom flow seamlessly together to create a contemporary family zone.
The kitchen has a huge 3.5m long stone island bench where a double door Beef Eater bar fridge is concealed at one end, two Smeg ovens, a Fisher & Paykel double drawer dishwasher and a butler’s pantry with ample storage.
The living space flows outside through glass bi-fold doors to the deck and lawn entertainment area with barbecue and built-in seating.
The low maintenance backyard has access to a double garage and workshop which is accessible via a rear lane.
The workshop could alternatively be used as an impressive man cave.
A study with powder room and laundry with pull down ladder to an attic with more storage space complete the floorplan.
The property is in a highly convenient location walking distance to the CBD, waterfront, Pakington St and the train station.
However you would not realise you were so close to all of these amenities as the property is tucked away in a quiet street and does not hear much traffic noise.
Maxwell Collins, Geelong agent Laura Vander Noord is taking the property to auction on February 16 at 1pm.
Price hopes are $1.15 million to $1.265 million.
