It is regarded as one of the most exclusive positions in Newcastle real estate and Graeme Brownlow believes his latest listing there is "as good as it gets".
Mr Brownlow, of Walkom Real Estate, is marketing 20 The Terrace on The Hill with a guide of $3.8 million to $4.1 million.
"It's a good footprint, a really good floor plan and it has terrific off-street parking, which most up there don't," Mr Brownlow said. "It's a good package."
He reported 31 groups through its first inspection last weekend - a mix of Sydney and local buyers.
The Terrace fronts King Edward Park with ocean views and is steeped in history with grand houses built there in the 1880s for the city's wealthy.
No.20 is of Victorian Italianate architecture and sits on a double block of 607 square metres. It has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, formal and informal lounge and dining areas and stunning original features throughout.
It is set for auction on May 22 and open Saturday at 10am.
