The embodiment of the “nice things come in small packages” adage, this single-fronted Edwardian and its block of nearly 250 square metres have been treated beautifully – not just in terms of space maximisation but also the overall aesthetic.
Beyond its charm-filled façade, the house retains beautiful cornicing on high ceilings, deep skirts and a fireplace to keep the Edwardian flag flying, but all else focuses on the look of today.

And the location? Mighty fine: Greenwich Reserve and The Strand waterfront are a five-minute amble away; Westbourne Grammar is within a two-minute zip in the car; and restaurants and shops are also in the neighbourhood.
The top storey of the house is entirely dedicated to the grey-carpeted main bedroom, which is under a plaster vaulted ceiling and has white plantation shutters on windows. The walk-in robe is roomy, while the spacious en suite has a tub to soak away cares, along with raised bowl-basins atop a storage-rich vanity.
As well as a study – which could take the role of a fourth bedroom – there are two fitted bedrooms downstairs, one with a fireplace. They share a modern bathroom with a bowl-basin atop a grey-laminate vanity.
The expansive living hub at the rear is a wonderfully light-filled space, courtesy of a clerestory window and an angled wall of glass that includes bifold doors to a deck. The floaty white sheers dressing the glass emphasise the airy feel, as does the high ceiling with stepped cornices.
The covered timber deck out back, sheltered by bistro blinds, is a fab entertaining/relaxation space. It looks out to a paved area flanked by a pair of underplanted ornamental trees, with two steps heading up to a thriving lawn. Laser screens are on the fence and a shed is tucked to the side.
This is a property that salutes a smaller footprint while underscoring the benefits of such. It’s a goodie …
