A Victorian of enduring excellence
In a picturesque position only steps away from Smith Street, this exquisitely maintained Victorian terrace retains its original charm while providing the space and style for modern family living, seamlessly combining immaculate period decorative elements with the urban character Fitzroy is famous for.
Immediately appealing from the street, the Victorian façade with leafy vines flows through to the entrance hallway, complemented by soaring high ceilings and ornamental archway. Ornate ceiling roses and cornices intersect with exposed brick finishes throughout the home, highlighting the contrast between the classic and the contemporary. The living area showcases a marble fireplace, accompanied by a separate generous kitchen appointed with gas cooktop, oven and dishwasher and adjoining a lightwell courtyard providing additional access to the home via a side laneway. An additional lush courtyard creates a private alfresco dining area, incorporating a separate powder room.

The main bedroom benefits from built in robes and access to a north facing balcony, with the other two sizeable bedrooms featuring decorative ceiling elements. A spacious bathroom is equipped with a shower over inbuilt bath. Laundry facilities, heating and excellent storage complete the residence.
