Victorian Elegance Reinvented with Beautiful Interiors and Private Alfresco Spaces


Auction Location: Watt Street Commercial Centre.

The elegant transformation of this wide fronted Victorian terrace has created a spacious inner-city home rich in character and destined to impress. Soaring 11ft pressed metal ceilings and restored period features set a mood of enduring appeal while a contemporary new kitchen and upstairs bathroom add modern amenity. In the fashionable heart of Cooks Hill, front and rear courtyards and an upper level lacework verandah create inviting retreats from the home’s fast-paced city surrounds.

A green fringed courtyard and tiled entrance cast a pleasing first impression and welcome you inside where all the traditional hallmarks of its c.1890’s heritage are on display. There are beautiful timber floors, a hallway arch and four period fireplaces to admire, air-conditioning and gas heating to keep things comfortable and chic plantation shutters and chandeliers that add a fresh, sophisticated feel. Grand formal lounge and dining rooms flow to the striking kitchen, impressive with its stone benchtops, pyrolytic oven, black dishwasher and wine fridge along with the family bathroom with freestanding bath and large shower. There is a seamless connection to the rear private rear courtyard and Mediterranean inspired garden with water feature and secure parking area, which can transition easily for large scale alfresco entertaining. Separating rest from play, three generously proportioned bedrooms enjoy the privacy of the upper level along with an impressive new bathroom where Carrara marble tiles and a large shower are a fabulous display of luxe design.

Positioned perfectly a short walk to Darby Street’s cafes and boutiques, Civic Park and just minutes to beaches, the harbour foreshore, schools and Marketown, this fine terrace is perfect for those seeking a family home that offers timeless appeal and enduring character in a superbly convenient location.
