Neoclassical elegance: a heritage landmark

Influenced by late Georgian and Parisian architecture, this spacious 4/5BR residence is one of Fitzroy's most notable homes, distinguished by a restrained symmetrical façade, large principal rooms and expansive front and rear gardens. Tastefully improved to combine period grace with light-filled contemporary style, this unique home has a flexible floor plan with great scope to enhance, comprising a central marble-floored hall opening to 2 double bedrooms (one currently an artist's studio); 3 light-filled upstairs bedrooms (main with ensuite); fitted study; superbly proportioned living and dining rooms open to a well-equipped kitchen (European appliances), flowing through a wall of glass to a paved and lawned secluded garden; stylish main bathroom/laundry with spa bath and shower. Including dual off-street parking, this enchanting historic residence in an exclusive precinct close to fine cafes and transport features richly polished timber floors, custom storage, air conditioning and quality appointments.
