Newington: Imposing Victorian Charm with Modern Family Spaces

Alive with distinctive Victorian charm and personality, Newington (circa 1888) effortlessly combines the elegant refinement of a different era with the relaxed comforts of today.

From street level, this landmark, double-fronted property makes a grand statement beyond a blooming cottage garden and exquisitely detailed, cast-iron and timber verandah. Under soaring ceilings, discover all 3 bedrooms zoned to the front of the property with the palatial main bedroom offering a well-proportioned dressing room and a striking ensuite with granite-topped, twin vanity.

Classically character-rich and ideal for entertaining with style and substance, the air-conditioned formal dining and lounge rooms are enhanced by a pair of immaculately restored, gas-fuelled open fireplaces. The full complement of period features are on display here with exquisite ceiling roses and decorative cornices impressively catching the eye.

The home magnificently opens up in contemporary fashion with the light-filled comforts of far-reaching living and dining. Taking full advantage of the northern sun, a window-walled and glass-roofed conservatory works wonderfully well as an informal dining area, complemented by a gleaming, granite kitchen featuring a timber-topped breakfast bar and Asko dishwasher. Beyond this space, a commanding mezzanine level stages a versatile home office with storage.

Substantially set on 800 sqm (approx.), the outdoor areas are testament to inspired planning. Enjoy effortless flow to a paved courtyard, a thoughtfully landscaped garden, and a tempting, solar-heated pool. Comprehensive features of this beautiful home include a skylit, family-sized bathroom, an underfloor wine cellar, large laundry, built-in cabinetry in the formal areas, alarm system, and extensive heating and cooling throughout. A remote-controlled double garage and additional off-street guest parking completes a home entirely in tune with modern demands.

This is privileged Brighton living with each and every space telling its own story without compromising classical period integrity. Take a short walk to Brighton Primary School, Church Street’s specialty shopping and cafes, dog-friendly William Street Reserve, and enjoy easy access to a range of leading schools and the beach.
