A most attractive corner terrace shophouse with an extended side balcony on a beautifully restored row of shop houses on one of the oldest streets on the edge of this World Heritage Site. The house has been lovingly restored with use of only the best and appropriate materials for a house built at the end of the 19th century.

Entry via ornately carved doors with embossed gold leaf, to a hall with guest wc. Through stylish screens, there is a living room which faces the internal courtyard with a most attractive specially commissioned mosaic fountain from a mosaic artist incorporating Straits Chinese and Arabic elements. On the other side, are a dining area and a large kitchen with the latest fittings and equipment (including a wine fridge) installed for contemporary living.
A discrete laundry follows opening up to another graceful courtyard. At the end of the house detached split level cottage for staff.

Upstairs there are two separate bedroom suites, one in the first half and the other at the back. Each suite has a bedroom, a living room, a bathroom (with a rain-shower) and a study on a full height second floor (one with a window opening on to the outside). The master bedroom opens up through French doors into a large unusual side balcony which overlooks the street.

All materials used in the total renovation of this house are of the highest quality from the Victorian tessellated floor tiles to the reclaimed antique hardwood used for doors, door frames, kitchen cabinets and all wooden fixtures and fittings as well as the Italian designer Artemide bedside lamps for the master bedroom. Other lighting is in keeping with the heritage of this house including Victorian Diamond Jubilee bell-jar lamps of the era.
