A STATEMENT front door brings the wow factor to a luxury home tucked away in Point Lonsdale.
The towering custom 3m high timber door gives the first indication of the stylish makeover the house at 21 Girvan Grove was given about nine years ago.
The original 1980s house looks relatively untouched from the street but as you descend a floodlit timber walkway to the impressive front door, a hint of the renovation becomes apparent.

As soon as you step inside the makeover becomes obvious.
A sprawling open-plan kitchen, meals area and loungeroom are hidden behind the towering entry foyer.
Here 3.6m high raked ceilings and floor to ceiling windows surround a family zone that was designed with entertaining in mind.
A 6m long stone island bench is a highlight of the kitchen that also has Miele appliances and a walk-in pantry.
Clerestory and louvre windows are the ideal addition for a coastal retreat that seamlessly transitions from indoor to outdoor living.
A formal loungeroom with original fireplace is found off the main living area and leads to the main bedroom with built-in wardrobes and ensuite. The loungeroom is one of the few remaining original rooms.
A bedroom, bathroom and laundry are positioned behind the kitchen.
Just outside the laundry is an outdoor shower so you can rinse off before coming inside.
An additional wing that has two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, a study, a bathroom and a third living area creates a kids retreat.
The loungeroom has built-in cabinetry that blends seamlessly with the style of the room and floor to ceiling windows that capture the established gum tree in the backyard.
The study also has ample built-in cabinetry with a long bench so that multiple people can work there are the same time.
The house was centred around the gum during the renovation process.
The renovation to the house may have been substantial but the owners were keen to uphold and maintain a modesty to the home.
The outdoor entertainment area consists of an expansive grey-look timber deck and built-in barbecue.
Down a couple of steps is established lawn with an in-ground trampoline.
The large deck wraps around two sides of the house and provides different areas for the family to relax.
Close to the barbecue is a dining table while comfortable seats next to the extension provide a space to sit back and relax in.
The property has a carport and garage and is a short walk to the front beach, shops, restaurants and the golf club.
This ideal family home exudes quality in an address most only dream of.
RT Edgar, Point Lonsdale agent Felix Hakins is running an expressions of interest campaign for the property, closing February 11 at 5pm.
Price hopes are $1.85 million to $2.035 million.
