Take a walk down memory lane when you arrive at Archbishop's Row, where you go back over 100 years , and where you could just as easily be in Paddington or South Yarra as central Subiaco. This 117-year-old, green-title terrace house, built in the Italianate Filigree style and in the desirable end position of the row, delivers all the elegant characteristics of its era: soaring ceilings, jarrah floorboards, multiple fireplaces, and ornamental facades with decorative balustrades and parapets. Combine these with its stylish renovation and you have a home you can move straight into and enjoy.

The floorplan of the house adopts the traditional terrace format, with living downstairs and bedrooms upstairs. As you enter, enjoying the traditional front door with stained glass features, you find a formal sitting room on your left. With a beautiful fireplace and built-in storage, this room would equally make a delightful study, or an additional downstairs bedroom. A sophisticated living and dining area, again with plentiful storage and on gleaming floorboards, establishes a logical flow through to the fabulous kitchen, with a striking blue splash back immediately capturing the attention. The intelligent design offers gas cooking, quality appliances, plenty of bench and storage space, and the unexpected treat of a butler's pantry (with additional powder room), tucked around the corner. Open the bi-fold doors and make use of the courtyard year round, protected by design and the addition of a shade sail, and with a built-in storage shed at the rear.

Upstairs, the house offers two generous bedrooms, each with floor-to-ceiling mirrored built-ins, plantation shutters, and another fireplace in the front bedroom. As you would expect of a terrace house, the front bedroom also features French doors, opening out onto a balcony overlooking the front courtyard and streetscape. The bedrooms share a sleekly renovated bathroom with a European laundry concealed in the extensive cabinetry.

With "walkability" a desirable quality in central Subiaco, you need to be able to leave your car safely at home. The terrace house includes two parking spaces - one secured within the courtyard, and another allocated immediately behind the house - with both included in the title and accessed from the laneway behind the Row. Furthermore, City of Subiaco parking permits are available to residents and visitors for use of exclusive on-street parking areas. Safely parked, you can now meander the 200m to Rokeby Road or 300m to Subiaco Square, or hop on your bike and join the Perth - Fremantle bicycle path, just 100m from your door.

Original terrace houses are becoming harder and harder to find, and this graceful Archbishop's Row home wraps modern living within its historic spirit.
