Early interest has come thick and fast for a "not your run of the mill" property on The Hill.
Mike Flook, of Robinson Property, is marketing a unique residence at 58 Church Street which has been the home of Richard and Lea Rule for the past 10 years and has undergone a stunning transformation in that time.
The couple have thoughtfully renovated throughout to deliver a light-filled home that offers comfort, convenience and style in equal measure.
"In 27 years of selling real estate, it's probably one of the most unique and amazing properties that I've come into," said Mr Flook, who reported being inundated with enquiry on the property.
"For someone looking for a point of difference and nothing quite like they've seen, this is certainly that."
'The Cottage', as it is known, was built circa 1860 and forms part of a group of terraces originally built by the Anglican Church for the Dean of Christ Church Cathedral.
It retains an elegant Victorian facade but through the striking red front door a modern masterpiece is revealed.
It is a stark contrast to its "70s style renovation" when the Rules purchased the property.
"There was pale pink carpet and pinky coloured walls," Mr Rule said.
"It was a 70s renovation that had attempted to try to replicate some of the original features but it didn't quite hit the mark."
They have used glass and timber and a light colour palette to add warmth and natural light.
The residence comprises three levels, with alfresco areas on each floor and stunning views of the harbour as well as across the grounds of the Cathedral.
Both owners love interiors and each part of the home has been carefully considered. A poster of dodgem cars enlarged into wallpaper and used in the stairway void has "been a nice feature". It is one of a number of elements to the property that make it so unique.
"Our interest is creating a bit of an eclectic feel that gives it a bit more interest than just a straight white wall," Mr Rule said.
"You don't want to overdo it so it becomes too busy but a few feature walls like that add points of interest around the house."
On entry level is a lounge, two bedrooms and a media room which extends through steel-framed bi-fold doors to a polished concrete courtyard.
The middle level is devoted to the main living and kitchen and enjoys an open plan layout and a harbour outlook. The top floor is devoted to a master bedroom and retreat. There are bathrooms on each level.
The owners have loved the northerly aspect of the property as well as its walkability, with the city, harbour, restaurants, cafes, King Edward Park, Anzac Memorial Walk and beaches all a stroll away.
A price guide has not been disclosed but Domain understands it to be below the $2 million mark. The property will be open for inspection on Saturday at 12.30pm.
