This beautiful Victorian terrace combines period features and an updated layout which will appeal to families, professionals, retirees and investors alike.

This single fronted solid double-brick residence set on bluestone foundations has stood the test of time. A classic, ornate lace-trimmed façade and lush private rose-filled front garden frame the elegant period detail within the expansive interior. 

There are three spacious double bedrooms (possible option for a fourth bedroom) and two stylish bathrooms. It also has an airy sun-filled formal dining zone and upgraded kitchen with gas cooktop and wall oven mounted within the russet brick fireplace. A separate living or entertainment room adjoins the kitchen. 

Stunning high ceilings feature decorative ceiling roses and matching cornices and architraves. There are polished floors and original cast-iron fireplaces with surrounds, enhancing this grand home’s appeal. Gas heating creates a beautiful warm balance throughout this inviting home. There is also a new solar hot water system.

The maintenance level of the front garden and rear yard is extremely low with clinker bricks and a protective pergola covering the majority of the backyard making it appealing for alfresco dining.

A compact grassed area would make the ideal space for a vegetable or herb patch, and a small garden with shade trees.

This superbly located inner city property has off-street parking for one vehicle and added storage space for bikes in a secure remote controlled garage at the rear of the property.
