Stunning Redesign of a Classic Terrace on the Edge of Darby Street

One block from Newcastle's best eat-street on Darby Street, this classic Victorian terrace in a handsome row of eight flaunts a creative renovation and redesign that embraces the outdoors and reveals an intelligent use of space. Beautifully presented, the home transitions from traditional period charm to sleek modern style with a free-flowing layout that seamlessly connects to a private alfresco entertaining courtyard at the rear.
