Evoking grandeur, character and unique chemistry, this palatial three bedroom residence occupies a substantial portion of the historically significant circa 1915 United Friendly Society Dispensary building. Originally designed by eminent boom-era architect William Pitt, and zoned commercial and residential, the property’s handsome façade and many period elements, including soaring pressed metal ceilings, original floorboards/staircase, and leadlight entry, are beautifully preserved. Entered through a sundrenched private garden, complemented by an entertainer’s pavilion and alfresco zone with trailing grapevines, the former pharmacy’s shop-front is now an entertainer’s delight with a light filled living/dining domain and recently renovated kitchen featuring stone island, dishwasher and Smeg dual-fuel cooker. An elegant lounge, with timber mantel/gas-fire, picture rails and decorative ceilings, adds appeal. Grand accommodation includes two enormous bedrooms with sitting/study areas. Plus main bathroom, laundry/storeroom second shower/powder room, heating/cooling, plantation shutters and coveted off street parking/ROW. Affording a peerless lifestyle with bayside cafés, beaches, shops, The Substation, schools and Newport station on its doorstep.
