Character-filled charm and family living combine in this stylish three-bedroom terrace. Full of period details, including fireplaces (updated with Ecosmart ethonol burners), high ceilings and decorative archways, this well-presented property offers the best of Victorian design in a convenient package.
Dating back to 1874 and spread over two levels, plus a mezzanine, the property boasts an elevated position on a quiet street, but is still just a stone’s throw from the cafes and best restaurants in Newtown. The flexible floorplan comprises a formal lounge, separate dining with study nook, and three large bedrooms, with the huge master opening onto a wide balcony with decorative lacework. There are polished floorboards throughout.
The modern kitchen features the latest easy-care stainless steel benchtops and European appliances, including a large gas stove. The family bathroom includes a bath tub while a second bathroom, separate laundry and additional toilet can be accessed through the rear courtyard.
There is plenty of storage, rare for a property of this age – with an outdoor shed, plus an attic (with pull-down ladder). Already a great family home, there were previously approved plans, which have since lapsed, to update the kitchen and bathroom, and add a fourth bedroom.
With off-street parking available and rear Street access, this terrace is close to transport and the bustle of Enmore Road and King Street, and within the catchment area of Newtown High School of Performing Arts – just a short stroll away.
