A real find, Victorian meets 21st Century. Set on a leafy side-street off Old Canterbury Road and bordering Summer Hill, this sensitively restored, freestanding 3-bedroom brick residence has it all. The substantial brick facade presents original Victorian iron lace, an iron-spear fence and a traditional, restored tiled veranda overlooking a pretty courtyard.
Three double-bedrooms adjoin the elegant arched-hall. Two feature operational marble mantles/tiled hearths, grand cornices and ceiling roses. Beyond the central arch, the hall flows into the spacious living-room. Both elegant and casual, the room features a marble mantle/tiled hearth at its centre (gas log fire) and a high centre ceiling rose featuring a modern Italian art light piece.
A traditional bathroom (tub) with pressed metal and a separate compact laundry/storage are found along a discrete hall. The spacious modern kitchen features quality cabinetry, Caesar Stone benchtop , induction cooktop, multi-function oven and plenty of storage. From the adjacent separate dining area (more storage), the robust German double-glazed tilt doors open to a very private garden courtyard with stunning night lighting. Separated by a screen, is a private drive-in carport.
All windows are new and feature hush’ laminated acoustic glass and acoustic shielding, meaning the house is both whisper quiet and highly insulated from all weather.
This elegant residence seamlessly merges sensitively-restored Victorian features with 21st century technologies – all set in the most public transport-accessible location in the inner west.
