Our newly extended Victorian terrace is situated in Paddington, one of Sydney's oldest and most vibrant suburbs. We are either walking distance or a short bus ride to all of the major tourist spots, beaches and parks. We are on a quiet, tree lined street yet minutes away from all the bars, pubs, cafes, cinemas and shops that our area has to offer. Our house is comfortable, private and secure...a little oasis in the heart of town. We look forward to hearing from you.
Built in the 1860s, our house was originally a two-up, two down worker's cottage. Now, with the extension, it comprises of three living spaces downstairs, with powder room/laundry, and three bedrooms upstairs along with the main bathroom. The house is characterful and warm, with vintage furniture, artworks and bits and pieces that we have picked up over the years.
The large kitchen has been architecturally designed and is well equipped with new or near new high/end appliances; stove, micowave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, twin sink and plenty of utensils for cooking up a storm! There is a breakfast table for more informal dining and entertaining. The big cedar doors and windows let in an abundance of light and open directly out to the courtyard. Olive oil, salt, pepper and other essentials for cooking are provided. Milk, butter, bread and eggs are left in the fridge for you, with our compliments.
The lounge has has a big bookshelf, with hundreds of books for your perusal. Or lie back on the sofa and watch TV, Netflix or a DVD.
The dining room has an old French dining table, vintage chairs and the original iron fireplace. It's a perfect setting for more formal dinners, under the ambient glow of our family heirloom chandelier.
The main bedroom is in the new part of the house. The big square window looks out over the courtyards and gardens. There is a very comfortable queen size bed, dressing table and a remote control ceiling fan and light. There is a separate space which houses a large wardrobe and room to dump your travel bags.
The middle bedroom has a desk and shelving and can be used either as a study or set up with a single bed or bunks for a family stay. It has a remote control skylight plus a big internal window which captures light from the stairwell skylight. This room is only accessible when rented as a two bedroom.
All the rooms are stylishly furnished throughout with designer or vintage furniture and floorboards throughout. The house has great cross-ventilation and keeps cool in the summer. The gas heater warms the house up quickly in winter.

I am an interior designer from Sydney and my husband is an artist, originally from London. This is our home and we live here with our son and our newborn twin girls. We have owned the house for 8 years, recently designing and completing an extension and renovation which has added a large kitchen entertaining area and a third bedroom. We let the house when we are traveling.
