Originally built around 1888, towards the end of the boom period, this classic double-fronted Victorian residence features a restored slate roof, bull-nose lacework and tessellated tile front verandah.
The property is an example of the generous proportions of its era with high ceilings, ornate cornices, ceiling roses, and original marble fireplaces in the traditional front rooms of the home.
A renovation done in 2003 by Kane Constructions combined original features with an architect-designed contemporary extension. Family dining and living and a stainless steel kitchen with Euro appliances overlook a lush rear garden.
There are four bedrooms, the main with an ensuite, a marble family bathroom, formal sitting room, study, vestibule, and laundry.
The entrance from the street has a high picket fence and gate that is framed by tall silver birch trees. As you enter the house a Baltic pine arched hallway highlights the preserved heritage interior with detailed hand painted windows.
