Ed­war­dian style in Warby Street

Wangaratta Chronicle - North East Property Guide - - NEWS -

THE restora­tion and re­fur­bish­ment of No 5 Warby Street over the last three years has been a re­mark­able suc­cess.

To see this Ed­war­dian/Fed­er­a­tion home as it was orig­i­nally pre­sented around 1915 tells us a lot about the qual­ity, at­ten­tion to de­tail and the hands on work­man­ship of that era.

The tuck pointed brick work seems fault­less.

All the ap­peal­ing her­itage fea­tures have been re­tained and en­hanced in­clud­ing high ceil­ings, beau­ti­fully pol­ished Mur­ray Pine Floors, tim­ber fret­work and sparkling lead­light.

The re­fur­bished kitchen and bath­room are sym­pa­thetic to the era and a vast im­prove­ment on those of the day.

The in­stal­la­tion of a top qual­ity hy­dronic heat­ing sys­tem, mul­ti­ple ceil­ing fans and ducted air con­di­tion­ing were not en­vis­aged in 1915 but now add enor­mously to the com­fort of the home. Lo­cated just a stroll from the CBD on a spa­cious 840m2 site the home con­tains three be­d­rooms, a study, lounge plus a gra­cious for­mal din­ing con­nect­ing to the spa­cious kitchen.
