With great presence and atmosphere, this ornate two-storey five bedroom, 2.5 bathroom residence wrapped in beautiful gardens has been a defining presence in Were Street since 1919. Proud and preserved, the home has been tightly-held and occupied by only two families. Today the baton is set to be passed to a new family to enjoy this prized abode positioned so close to the beach, Were Street Village, Church Street and private schools.
Commanding 1070sqm (approx.) with a northern frontage in a premiere location split distance between Were Street Village and Dendy Beach.
Magnificent architecture featuring soaring ceilings, original fireplaces, glass French doors, ornate stained glass and herringbone flooring defines the well-maintained interiors and flowing floorplan that offers garden views from all the principal rooms and scope for customisation.
