Of all the desirable streets in Melbourne’s inner north, Gore Street, Fitzroy is king. Surrounded by Brunswick, Smith and Gertrude Street shopping strips and nestled right on the cusp of the CBD, the leafy location is right in the thick of everything! And most of all, it has the BEST Victorian terraces.

This brick dwelling built in 1860 is one of them. Through the iron latticed facade and arched entry hallway, the ground floor front rooms retain all the details of its heritage grandeur, such as marble fireplaces and polished floorboards. The main living area at the rear is flanked by shuttered French doors, which open to a paved brick courtyard. As is customary for residential architecture of the era, the three large bedrooms are located on the second storey of the house, the main of which opens out onto a sweeping upper floor balcony (goals!). Perfect for overlooking all the action happening on the iconic street!

Held by the same couple for the last 34 years, the veteran Fitzroy locals oversaw a major interior renovation in 1996 and kitchen and bathroom updates over the last eight years. Though they’ll miss their longstanding home, the house is now primed for new custodians!

33 Gore Street, Fitzroy will be sold via auction on Tuesday, December 15th by Sonya Laferla and Luke Chisholm of Nelson Alexander. Like what you see above? See the full listing here!
