'Farthings' c1866

The elegance of the Victorian era, the quality of the contemporary elements and the allure of an East Melbourne address work together to give this romantic, intelligently renovated home its irresistibility. The effect begins with the façade, a street presence that reflect origins as an 1866 cottage, significantly extended by 1869. The north facing sitting room's pressed metal ceiling, bay window and marble fire place illustrate the growth in prosperity of George Milton, the first owner, while a separate study or third bedroom features French doors to the front garden. Beautiful central living and dining spaces with a second marble fire place lead to a separate granite and Bosch fitted kitchen accompanied by an inviting informal dining area and access to a welcoming rear courtyard. Upstairs a main bedroom with roof-top deck and ensuite, additional bedroom and second bathroom deliver desirable accommodation. Ducted heating and air conditioning. Downstairs powder room. Rear lane right-of-way. Superb.
