A stunning family home waiting for its next chapter sits behind a high fence in the historic township of Guildford. Built in the 1930s, the home vibrates with the beauty of its authentic fabrication and wealth of preserved period features.

Complete with high ceilings - coffered in some rooms, exquisitely ornate in others - a decorative cased opening, oiled jarrah window and door frames, lead light windows and a deep verandah with Tuscan columns set against a rough stuccoed facade, the home does require updating. Still, it is poised for transformation into a truly impressive family residence.

Formal rooms sit at the front of the plan; a central hall leads to three large bedrooms, a kitchen with the original hearth opens to a rear porch overlooking the level backyard, and a built-in verandah offers an ample, light-filled space suited to multiple uses.

Wonderfully situated in the heart of Guildford with a laneway at the rear boundary, the property is minutes from the train station, Guildford Grammar School and the town’s eclectic mix of retail and coffee shops.

Intact and inspirational, this property offers a unique opportunity.
