A HOME OF PURE GRANDEUR
This commanding double fronted balconied terrace (originally a grocery and residence) provides period elegance combined with the ever-elusive family accommodation. A stunning two-storey, 10 room, 19th-century terrace home, it is as picturesque today as the day it was built (circa 1890) and preserves its dignified old-world charm with original Baltic pine polished floors and 4 metre ceilings while offering scope to add further value.
The palatial proportions of the elegant formal sitting room are complemented by the generous relaxed additional living room with a gorgeous leafy green “secret garden”. A separate formal dining room is set just off the large entertainer’s kitchen complete with a 900mm Smeg stovetop and oven, Bosch dishwasher and custom cabinetry. This directly opens out to the generous courtyard garden, providing space, privacy and enjoyment with a sense of tranquillity amongst the greenery. There is even room for a future pool.
With 6 bedrooms in total, upstairs comprises 5 large bedrooms, 2 with original working fireplaces, master with ensuite access and a walk-in-robe, and 2 spacious bathrooms (with an additional powder room and walk in laundry on the ground floor). A majestic and eye-catching balcony at the end of the hallway really compliments the outstanding accommodation on offer.
The property is further enhanced by off street parking via Yorkshire Street, garage shed, abundant storage including underfloor cellar, hydronic heating throughout, period features, split system heating and cooling, and polished concrete flooring.
While perfectly comfortable now, opportunity exists to improve if desired, making the most of a sensational lifestyle location.
