Historically, the home was built by Theo Hanke in 1894: he has been quoted as being an adventurous designer.

An imposing entrance features a host of restored Victorian touches including tessellated tiled verandah, ethched glass door, ornate high decorative ceilings and stunning polished timber staircase.

The opulent sitting room located at the entrance of the home is graced by large windows decorated with plush imported “Sanderson” fabric curtains all centred around a working Victorian marble fireplace. A majestic formal dining room commands immediate attention with its high ornate ceilings, large bay window and again a working Victorian marble fireplace as its focal point. The perfect place to host an unforgettable dinner. At the heart of the home is the fully equipped Chefs kitchen and family room.
