Stylish Inner City Terrace - Sydney

Our 1880s terrace house was remodelled 4 years ago into a contemporary living space.

The house is spacious and comfortable. The front room is a study/bedroom with walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom. This leads into an open plan space with a formal dining area, concealed laundry and gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar. The adjoining sitting room opens through bi-fold doors to a leafy private courtyard. There is a full barbeque (gas connection) and an open hearth outdoor fireplace for the cooler months. In summer the courtyard is shaded by a sliver of woodland beyond the property.

The first floor level has a study alcove, guest bedroom, sleek full bathroom (including bath) and the main bedroom and ensuite bathroom. Both bedrooms are well provisioned with storage. The main bedroom leads onto a sunny private deck which is perfect for breakfast or an evening drink.

Our house features mid-century furniture and work by artists we love.

About the location

Set in a quiet, leafy street, our terrace house is close to transport, shops and restaurants. It`s a stroll from the University of Sydney and you can walk to the harbour in 15 minutes and to the city centre in less than an hour.

The Inner West area of Sydney has a cosmopolitan cafe life and a diverse population. Buses and the light rail system serve the area well. Broadway Shopping Centre is a five-minute bus ride from the house, and on the way you pass Glebe Point Road, with its funky bars, restaurants (Greek, Indian, Lebanese, Mexican, Vietnamese) and cafes. In late 2016 a new restaurant/cafe/shopping hub opened in the old tram sheds at Harold Park, just five minutes walk away. Swimming pools, a library, galleries and markets are close by.

On nearby Blackwattle Bay, our favourite walk has classic Sydney views of the Harbour Bridge and Anzac Bridge, easy access to the famous Sydney Fish Market and, on New Year`s Eve and Australia Day (26 January), it`s a great spot to see the spectacular fireworks.
