The bluestone villa, built in 1900, a year before Federation, has heritage listing and is one of the largest historic row houses in Halifax Street. It has a versatile floorplan that includes a blend of formal and informal living spaces, a library, three bedrooms, two bathrooms and a private back garden with off street carparking accessed via Tomsey Lane. The owners have installed ducted evaporative air conditioning and hydronic heating throughout the home and there are solar panels on the roof. Behind a pretty front traditional wooden paling style fence and a substantial 11m approx wide frontage, a pathway through the fragrant rose garden leads to the tessellated tiled verandah and front door which is surrounded by original leadlight dating back more than a century. The current owners have enjoyed sitting on this verandah to watch the world go by. They have also enjoyed the sunlight that spills through the bay window of the front room, which the vendors use as a music room. It has a gas fire surrounded by a stunning black marble mantlepiece. On the other side of the central hallway is the first of three bedrooms although there is potential to accommodate up to five bedrooms if you don't need a music room and library. It has built-in cupboards and a large picture window to the front garden. Further down the hall, the main bedroom includes an ensuite bathroom with a frameless glass bay window above the vanity unit. Like the first bedroom, the third bedroom has built-in wardrobes. The main bathroom, conveniently positioned in the centre of the home close to all the living areas and bedrooms, has travertine marble tiles and a large spa bath. Behind the front four rooms is a spectacular library room that could also be used as a formal dining room, study or home office. A wall of north facing glass and a set of French doors from the library opens into a garden atrium that brings sunshine and fresh air into this room throughout the year. The library also looks through this open green space to the casual dining and living room and has extended views to the back garden which is filled with colourful flowering perennials and shrubs. The glass atrium acts as a light well between the traditional front and conservatory style back part of the home and the living room has a fabulous wall of glass that extends into the ceiling overlooking the back garden and the adjacent kitchen. Striking with its black benches and white joinery, the kitchen includes a host of cupboards and drawers as well as overheads. A ceramic sink has been built into an island bench that divides the kitchen from the casual dining and living area. A door from the kitchen leads into the laundry which could be utilised as a butler's pantry. The laundry also has direct access to the back garden. It is quite exceptional to find a house in the CBD with such a large rear garden - large enough to include mature trees, a garden shed, an alfresco brick paved dining area and provision for off street parking via Tomsey Lane.
