For inquiries, contact John Backhouse of Sydney Sotheby's International Realty, who has set the price guide at $2.5 million.

A circa-1875 terrace has had a head-to-toe reboot at this Erskineville five-bedder.

The kitchen is a focal point, with statement lights imported from Italy that hang over a marble benchtop and large, steel-framed doors leading out to the courtyard.
