The home is packed with original Victorian features including lofty ceilings, floorboards, deep skirting boards, lovely moulded cornices, ceiling roses, sash windows and three timber surround fireplaces, one of which is still in use.
Painted timber dado and timber lined ceilings also add to the character. An updated bathroom and modern kitchen together with a fresh coat of paint inside and out has given the property a new lease on life.
