The property is beautifully appointed and comes to the market in pristine condition throughout with all of the period details of the Victorian era, perfectly retained and intact which are a testament to an age when attention to detail was paramount.
Wide granite steps lead up to the gracious hall door which has a magnificent fanlight over. There is a lovely bright entrance hallway with black and white tiled marble floor, 15ft high ceilings, highly ornate cornicing and decorative archway and display alcoves lead to the inner hallway, and it gives just a hint of what is to come. Most of the rooms retain original period features including high ceilings, ornate ceiling cornicing and centre roses, marble fireplaces, window shutters and sash windows, all of which have been restored. These features marry perfectly with the outstanding craftmanship throughout from the bespoke Andrew Ryan designed kitchen to the magnificent single block of an Italian hand carved oval sandstone bath in the family bathroom and every modern convenience that is required to run a home of this magnitude.
