Luxury home camouflaged in former Fitzroy army barracks

A 1930s army barracks has made way for a stylish home being marketed as “one of Fitzroy’s finest residences”.

Nelson Alexander Fitzroy’s Andrew De Angelis said The Courtyard House at 41 Little Victoria St was “the best” of about six residences created inside the historic ivy-wreathed brick building, with acclaimed interior design and architect firm KPDO behind the cool conversion.

The three-bedroom pad was completed about four years ago to contain two wings over two storeys that overlook a landscaped central courtyard.

Now, it carries a $4-$4.4 million price guide that, if achieved at its scheduled March 23 auction, would put the property among Fitzroy’s priciest residences.

The record was set at $4.9 million by the 43 Gore St home of Madman Entertainment co-founder Paul Wiegard in 2017.

No. 17 Bell St is the next most expensive house to have sold in the suburb at $4.011 million in 2016, CoreLogic records show.

Red Symons’ former home at 89 Alfred Cres holds the Fitzroy North benchmark at $5 million.

“It has a level of finishes we rarely see in Fitzroy,” Mr De Angelis said of the Little Victoria St property.

“Without a doubt it’s one of the best properties in Fitzroy.”

There are “dramatic” high ceilings, Zimbabwean stone benchtops, Dinesen Douglas Danish flooring and a Gaggenau-equipped kitchen with a butler’s pantry.

The main bedroom “retreat” is a treat, featuring an ensuite and occupying its own wing.
