This property is the love child of period renovation savvy and contemporary interior cool.

Creative minds at local outfits March Studio and MCO-llection have transformed this once-semi-derelict Victorian into a global showpiece.

Impressive use of timbers, textures, colour and light rightfully earned it a place in The Design Files and a fan in Lucy Feagins.

The double-brick, three-bedroom house, built in about 1870, enjoys a prized cul-de-sac position backing Victoria Gardens.

Sensitively modernised without losing its curb-side charm, the dwelling  has a highly liveable floor plan  with free-flowing downstairs living and dining areas, a marble open-plan kitchen,  a deck and prized undercover parking.

Its extensive renovation was a “labour of love” for its vendors, says agent Andrew McCann of Jellis Craig, who takes it to auction on October 21.
