Glebe Townhouse

This bright three-bedroom Victorian styled townhouse, with a rear garden, is positioned on Holmwood Ave just a stones throw from the picturesque Brown's Inlet and on a  quiet, tree-lined street in the Glebe.

It is subject to a thoughtful renovation by its current owner, the house marries modern  touches with the charm of some  classic Victorian features, including high ceilings, wood floors and crisp white wainscotting


The house presents a smart façade to the street, with its decorative cornicing and ornate columns .

Inside, the foyer  which is appointed with white painted paneled wainscotting  leads you to the main rooms. The living and dining room are formal sized with high ceilings  and a fireplace that has retained its period style mantelpiece. Original wooden flooring runs underfoot and the owners have carefully added paneled wainscotting with a plate rail to the dining room.

The kitchen, which lies to the rear of the plan,  has been updated with contemporary materials including wood cabinets and brushed steel counters as well as designed to provide a smart eating cafe area.

Up the wood staircase ( also accented by the decorative wainscotting) to the second floor  where there are three bedrooms and a full bathroom. The front bedroom opens to an "Old World" front porch which is pure delight - looking over the trees and street to the Inlet.  The main bathroom has also been updated to provide a more modern look with walk in shower stall .

There is a rear garden and excellent parking off at the rear of this home.
