Vic­to­rian inspiration

The Courier-Mail - Property - - Marketplace - Lara Caughey

COME home to this el­e­gant re­pro­duc­tion ter­race house with dec­o­ra­tive wrought iron lace­work and a cot­tage gar­den.

Nes­tled in a quiet pocket of Padding­ton, the two-storey res­i­dence has drawn inspiration from the Vic­to­rian ter­races of Syd­ney and Mel­bourne.

In­side, gen­er­ous liv­ing ar­eas blend fea­tures of yes­ter­year with con­tem­po­rary fin­ishes.

A pe­riod fire­place in the lounge room cre­ates a warm at­mos­phere.

Down­stairs, there’s a din­ing room, a lounge area and a spacious kitchen with a laun­dry and bath­room.

The tim­ber kitchen has a dish­washer, an elec­tric stove and am­ple cup­board space. On the up­per level there are four bed­rooms, three with built-in wardrobes and the main with an ensuite.

French doors open to a pri­vate rear bal­cony from the main bed­room which over­looks the leafy, land­scaped gar­den.

Three con­tem­po­rary bath­rooms ser­vice this home.

A low-main­te­nance paved out­door area of­fers a large cov­ered en­ter­tain­ment area with an out­door fan and pond with a wa­ter­fall.

Ad­di­tional fea­tures in­clude air­con­di­tion­ing up­stairs, a se­cu­rity sys­tem, an in­ter­com, a ducted vac­uum sys­tem and a rain­wa­ter tank.

It has dual street ac­cess and is close to Padding­ton’s many ameni­ties.
