SWEEPING 180-degree views across the Barrabool Hills and Geelong are given top billing at a Highton property that can never be built out.
An elevated position on a prime corner block delivers great vistas from both levels of the two-storey family home at 36-38 Woolondoon Drive.
Large, deep windows angled towards the dual street frontages are a signature feature of the modern Hotondo build and ensure almost every room is bathed in natural light.
There’s plenty to appeal to the eye inside as well with details like spotted gum timber floors and feature lighting injecting a sense of style.

The good impressions start on the street where the imposing facade is dressed up with tropical inspired landscaped gardens.
The lush greenery softens the overall feel of the property and creates a lush backdrop for outdoor entertaining in the private backyard.
The entrance hall is surprisingly generous — a theme that’s repeated throughout the family-friendly floorplan. From here you can head straight up the timber staircase to the main living area upstairs or detour to the ground floor which would make a fantastic children’s zone.
Downstairs you’ll find three carpeted bedrooms, all with large built-in wardrobes, alongside a central loungeroom.
This living space is the gateway to a covered deck with steps up to an inviting lawn that’s still green even after months of dry summer weather.
This level is also home to a family bathroom with a deep tub, separate toilet and large laundry that has great storage. There’s more handy storage space under the stairs.
The spotted gum timber flooring continues upstairs to the open-plan kitchen, dining and living room, bringing warmth to an otherwise black and white interior.
There’s fantastic views in every direction here and you can even enjoy them from while standing at the kitchen sink.
A stone waterfall island benchtop is a key feature of the quality kitchen, which has a 900mm Ilve stove, Miele dishwasher and a large butler’s pantry that runs the full length of the main cooking space.
The meals area flows out to an elevated deck that runs across the northwest side of the house — perfect for entertaining friends and family.
At the other end of the living area is a study nook with a built-in desk and powder room.
The neighbouring main bedroom also has a big window to frame the view plus his and hers walk-in wardrobes that can be closed off from view and a ensuite with an oversized shower and double vanity.
There’s internal access from the double garage while an impressive set of automatic gates leads to an additional secure off-street parking space for a caravan or trailer.
Central heating, split system airconditioning and double glazing complete the package.
Maxwell Collins, Geelong agent Duncan Skene has listed the property with price hopes of $1.05 million to $1.09 million.
