The house had previously been used as medical offices before the vendors embarked on a complete renovation transforming the building into a four-bedroom family home.
Contemporary features mix with period details creating a luxury home with an elegant kitchen that has a butler’s pantry, two Smeg ovens, 3.5m stone island bench and underfloor hydronic heating in the polished concrete floor.
