34 Farm Street Newport

In the same family for forty years and two generations this Newport home is everywhere you want to be. Close to everything, the Strand, Newport Station and an abundance of parks – 34 Farm Street sits comfortably between Yarraville and Williamstown.

Lovingly restored and skillfully renovated, the design of the home has been carefully considered to suit a modern lifestyle in this picturesque part of Newport. Situated on a beautifully wide, tree-lined street and on a large block with a north-facing rear yard, it has all the hallmarks for someone’s idyllic home.

Master Bedroom

Very generous in size, the master bedroom room is both plush and elegant. Upon entry you’ll immediately notice the divine (and dimmable) contemporary chandelier and stunning original leadlight bay window and also has huge floor-to-ceiling robes providing maximum storage and a feature period fireplace to complete that feeling of luxury.

Second Bedroom

As with all of the bedrooms, the second bedroom has gorgeous plantation shutters, plush quality carpets and large robes. Being at the front of the home, this room also retains a number of the original features such as the picture rails, decorative air vents and leadlight windows which provide plenty of natural light.

Third Bedroom

With ducted heating throughout the home, all bedrooms remain toasty in the colder months. Another generous sized third bedroom, allowing versatility as whoever occupies it grows  – this bedroom also has a large robe, quality wool carpeting and plantation shutters. This room feels private and cosy regardless of being substantial in size.

Central Bathroom

Accessible from the entrance hallway and behind a leadlight period door lies the first bathroom. Fully tiled in contemporary subway and penny round tiles and with slick matt black tapware, this cleverly designed bathroom not only serves as a powder room but also has the convenience of a second large shower.

Home Office

Off the entrance hallway and through a recessed sliding door designed to separate the sleeping areas from the rest of the home is a dedicated study which also can be made private by its own double sliding doors. This room could also easily be utilised as a 4th bedroom or playroom as a result. Polished floorboards, feature picture rails plus plantation shuttered windows make this room light, bright and comfortable.

As you enter the main part of the home you’ll notice what a successful job the owners have done in melding the original home’s aesthetic together with the modern extension. 

High ceilings, American Oak floorboards throughout plus all of the internal doors in the main part of the house are recessed sliding doors to maximise spaciousness. The details, from the light fittings to the light switches, have all been considered to ensure a quality constructed and sophisticated home.

Main Bathroom

This bathroom is as stunning as it is practical. Plentiful storage in both the double timber vanity cabinetry and mirrored cabinet, the main bathroom is consistent in design with the first. Floor to ceiling white penny round and subway tiles give this room real wow factor as does the huge inbuilt bathtub. It really does look big enough for 3!

Another large frameless glass-paneled shower, designer matt black tapware and black-framed window all bring the room together elegantly. 


Located just off the kitchen, the laundry is a room of it’s own before the main bathroom. With the same penny round tiles and flooring as the bathroom, this creates a seamless transition between the two rooms. Ample inbuilt storage, shelving and sink contribute to the rooms practicality.


Could this be the perfect kitchen? White and sparkling bright, this stunning kitchen is truly the heart of the home. Well appointed with Fisher and Paykel appliances, microwave nook and Franke double-sink, the neutral palette continues here with the colour of the cabinetry, waterfall island bench, smoked glass and window splashback.

American Oak floorboards create a sense of gentleness and warmth underfoot. This kitchen has been cleverly designed for ease of use but also – and notably – to have maximum storage which you have to see to believe!


Impressive 3 metre ceilings and American Oak flooring continue into the open plan dining and living spaces. A floor plan perfectly laid out for both family living and entertaining, the north facing living room window and dining area glass concertina doors ensure abundant warmth and light during the day. Unobtrusive window coverings and a Daikin split system enable the area to be cool in the warmer months also. 

The Owners: “The heating is absolutely amazing and our Escea heater keeps us toasty on winter nights”

The living area has further inbuilt cabinetry, is beautifully lit with a smoked glass pendant light plus downlights and has a wonderful gas log Escea fireplace adding visual and practical appeal.


From the dining area, the current owners chose a large bi-fold doors which opens directly onto timber decking, creating an indoor/outdoor feel. This has been perfect for family gatherings. 

The Owners: “We love to watch the sky from the gorgeous huge rear windows.”

The exterior walls surrounding the outside deck have been clad with distinctive vertical blackbutt panelling, bringing a contemporary and stylish energy to the space and adding a clever contrast to the period weatherboards. 

The back garden is substantial and designed to be low maintenance. With plenty of space to play and enjoy your own outdoors there is also a shed cleverly located to have laneway access and ideal for even more storage (yes more!) or exercise.
