Auction Location: Live Online via Auction Now Website

A picturesque terrace row in historic Watt Street is the perfect setting for this grand multi-level residence, which has undergone an elegant, sympathetic renovation. Clever design ideas highlight the property's exquisite Victorian era charm while optimising its footprint to create formal and casual living areas, private four-bedroom accommodation, and a courtyard for alfresco dining and entertaining. Zoned B4 Mixed Use allowing residential or suitable business use, the enviable location of this grand terrace cannot be overstated.

Retaining its quintessential Victorian good looks with eye-catching arched windows and an upper-level filigree verandah, this is a home of enduring style and sophistication. Soaring 4m ceilings will take your breath away, while original hardwood floors, tall skirts, three marble fireplaces, and hallmark hallway arches add a sense of timeless elegance.

The formal lounge and dining rooms on entry can function as one flowing space or closed off by large timber bi-folding doors before flowing into the contemporary kitchen and casual meals area. Here Caesarstone benchtops and excellent bench and prep space make cooking a breeze, while back door access leads you out to the courtyard for easy entertaining. Sleeping quarters are split over two levels upstairs along with a family room – or fifth bedroom – two bathrooms and a shower room
