A rare opportunity to acquire a beautiful detached double fronted Victorian villa style residence dating from the 1860s. Designed by Edmund Figgis and described by architect Jeremy Williams as "the most elegant Greek Revival residential development in the southern suburbs".

Lovingly cared for by its present owners and sympathetically restored and developed over 29 years, No.1 is flooded with natural light. Functionality and elegance are perfectly combined throughout.

The large bathroom on this landing features a beautiful 4-panel glazed door painted after originals by Matisse. The natural light though these colourful glass panels creates a most pleasing impression over the full length of the hall.
