The restoration and refurbishment of No 5 Warby Street over the last three years has been a remarkable success. To see this Edwardian/Federation home as it was originally presented around 1915 tells us a lot about the quality, attention to detail and the hands on workmanship of that era. The tuck pointed brick work seems faultless. All the appealing heritage features have been retained and enhanced including high ceilings, beautifully polished Murray Pine Floors, timber fretwork and sparkling leadlight. The refurbished kitchen and bathroom are sympathetic to the era and a vast improvements on those of the day. The installation of a top quality hydronic heating system, multiple ceiling fans and ducted air conditioning were not envisaged in 1915 but now add enormously to the comfort of the home. Located just a stroll from the CBD on a spacious 840m2 site the home contains three bedrooms, a study, lounge plus a gracious formal dinning connecting to the spacious kitchen.
The very rear of the home awaits further work according to the taste of a new owner. Similarly the stylish and detached red brick rooms or former garage would make a marvellous studio. Given the location of this property NO 5 represents one of those rare opportunities to enjoy life in the central City precinct in a home of real distinction and comfort.
