Rare Opportunity! Victorian Terrace With Rear Lane Access

Don't miss this rare opportunity to secure your future in owning your very own piece of historic real estate in a prime location. A rare investment opportunity to own 2 side by side Victorian Terraces in Cooks Hill's most photographed location. Adjacent to Newcastle's famous 'Love Lane'; the smell of the mouthwatering culinary delights will lead you out your front door, across the street, down the cobbled, fairy lit, succulent potted lane to Darby Street. Here you will enjoy a community herb garden, boutique shops, bars, & selection of international cuisine. Darby Street is home to some of Newcastle's best cafes and restaurants and the bustling night life are just a stone's throw away.
