Perched in the sought-after Highton hills with Barwon River views, you’ll be living your best life from the minute you move into this fetching family home.
Situated on North Valley Road with easterly frontage, the property captures impressive views back across to Newtown and Geelong city, all the while shielded from the afternoon sun and hot westerly winds with established trees at the rear.
Before we move on from the views, we should mention that you can take them in from just about anywhere on the property including the front deck, front yard, master bedroom and elevated backyard.
Speaking of the backyard, it has been landscaped to perfection with large elevated flat grassed areas for the kids, pets and entertaining, while sitting neatly below is a large private and well protected undercover alfresco area.
Inside the home you’ll find three good-sized bedrooms upstairs, plus a fourth bedroom/ study downstairs.
There’s a large modern kitchen, open-plan living space, high ceilings and solid timber floors. The property also boasts a large double garage with direct access, plus additional off-street parking in the driveway.
If you ask a Highton resident they will tell you that they would never live anywhere else in Geelong, and it’s not hard to see why.
Everything you need is at your fingertips including some of Geelong’s top performing private and state primary schools; Christian College and Highton, Highto Primary, Montpellier and Bellaire primary schools.
An active lifestyle is also a breeze when you’re just minutes from one of Geelong’s most popular walking, running and cycling tracks along the Barwon River, as well as Highton’s many recreational facilities such as tennis courts, ovals, play grounds, lawn bowling, and Queens Park Golf Club.
You won’t need to go to the CBD for shopping and delicious food either, with the quaint and convenient Highton Village nearby. Here you’ll always find a park and have an excellent choice of cafes including local favourites Two Sugars, Bon Appetite, Dariwill Farm, 63 Degrees, Vitality and more. There’s also a Woolworths, chemist, banks, bakery, bottle shop, hair salon, butcher, Harvey’s famous green grocer, newsagent, dry cleaning, fish and chips, Asian takeaway, travel agent and more.
Highton is also ripe for investing with easy access to Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds and Eastern Beach campuses, the Epworth Hospital, a short drive from the Geelong CBD and easy access to the Geelong Ring Road. You’ll be 20 minutes from Torquay’s world famous surf beaches, and 60 minutes from Melbourne.
With a population made up predominantly of owner/occupiers or buyers who are mostly couples, families and professionals, Highton is a stable and quiet suburb where you will feel right at home.
Move to Highton and you’ll never leave Highton, they say. Well, there’s only one way to find out and there’s no better opportunity than this family home that is ready to move into with all the hard work done.
Close to facilities, amenities, schools, Geelong CBD and train stations – move in, kick back, take in your views and thank us later.
