Quarry Hill is revered for its 19th century homes, and this one is a fine example. It's a freestanding residence with an ornate front verandah featuring original iron lacework. As you enter the home, the warmth and character of yesteryear is displayed everywhere you look, from Baltic pine floors, ornate ceilings, leadlight windows and amazing cast iron fire surrounds with lovely timber mantels. The home comprises 3 bedrooms, all with Baltic pine flooring, the main also with built-in robes, plus a living room of generous proportions, which has original ceilings with large cornices, giving this room a sense of grandeur. Adjoining the living room is a renovated kitchen/dining with granite bench tops, loads of storage, dishwasher, stainless steel under bench oven and stainless steel gas hot plates. A generous sized bathroom offers a claw foot bath, separate shower and pedestal-style vanity. Modern comforts include the welcome addition of ducted gas heating and ducted evaporative cooling which are so sought after. The home is set on a slightly elevated block, which would offer amazing views over the city with only some moderate alterations at the rear, to possibly extend with balcony and windows (STCA). Outside is an easy-care garden, and off street parking available with roller door giving added security. Only a short stroll to boutiques, restaurants, entertainment, schools, parkland and train station. Homes of this calibre and location are snapped up quickly, so your early inspection is highly recommended.
