Downsizers, young families or those looking for a lock-up and leave lifestyle should make time to check out this Newport gem.


9/11-15 Basil Street, Newport 3015


It’s well located, in as-new condition and the clever use of space has resulted in a three-bedroom house on a townhouse-sized lot.

Low maintenance is king in this sleek property that combines open-plan living with modern clean lines.

The front door opens to a small entry. To the immediate right is a dining area kept light and bright by two banks of windows. This area leads to the open-plan living and kitchen.

The galley-style kitchen offers plenty of storage with loads of white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and a breakfast bench for two. This area ends with the spacious living area where full height sliding doors open to an undercover and paved dining area that overlooks a compact and established garden.

Under-stair storage adds to the amenity.

Upstairs are all three bedrooms and each has its own appeal. The main is situated at the rear and has an en suite and walk-in robe, the front bedroom has views over the street and the third bedroom has north-facing windows for the best of the winter light.

Both bathrooms, also upstairs, combine dark floor tiles in contrast to white wall tiles and fittings to striking effect. It’s a
colour combination also used in the bedrooms with lush grey carpets and white walls.

A remote-controlled single garage has internal access, opening to a service area housing the laundry and a powder room.

Other attractions include reverse cycle air-conditioning and an alarm.

Buyers are flocking to Newport for its laid-back lifestyle and this property ticks all the boxes for those who like everything within walking distance.

It’s close to the Mason Street strip, Challis Street shops, Newport station, Newport Lakes Park, Altona Lakes Golf Course and schools from early learning to secondary.
