Roslyn Gardens in Elizabeth Bay is a prominent and historic street boasting a diverse range of architectural styles and some truly beautiful homes. Among them are the magnificent Brent Terraces, a four-storey Victorian Italianate terrace row praised for its ornate detailing, featuring balconies adorned with matching cast iron lace from the renowned foundry of Dash & Wise.
This residence offers four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and a flexible floorplan spread across its four levels, a beautiful ballroom/music room on a dedicated level with a new blackbutt hardwood floor, providing a nod to the house’s historical significance while accommodating modern lifestyles, elegant formal living and dining spaces, high 3.4m ceilings, a home office, two private outdoor living areas, a chef’s gourmet kitchen, ample storage and double garage accessible from the rear lane via Bradley Lane.
This terrace showcases a host of original features that add both charm and character. The first level has original sandstone internal walls, while stained glass windows and doors grace the entire residence. Seven marble fireplaces, three of which are equipped with jetmaster heaters for whole-house warmth, contribute to the unique and cultural aspects of the home. Original Doulton’s laundry sink, a spiral cedar staircase spanning all four levels, and preserved Kauri timber floors on levels 2, 3, and 4 further exemplify the property’s historical richness. Additional features include a cedar staircase adorned with rare and beautiful hand-carved Waratah flowers, believed to be one of the only surviving cedar stair carvings of the Waratah from 1897. Original 1897 carvings and patterns from Kauri wood embellish the staircase.
