About this property

Owing to its Tudor Revival design by one of the towns leading architects for his own use, 5 Ure Street has architectural significance and is one of the landmark houses on the South Hill - commonly known as 'Forrester House'.

Through its association with John and Elizabeth Forrester the house has historical and community significance. The house was built in 1906 to the design of John Forrester.

The interior of this residence boasts a fusion of timber and lead light features that exude warmth and character. With 3 spacious bedrooms upstairs offering captivating views, this home provides sanctuary and comfort, each bedroom offers its own ensuite. A separate toilet with hand basin is located on the ground floor.

The endless living options will be sure to impress - a formal lounge, second living area and a 'snug' with adjoining sunroom, ensuring every space is thoughtfully designed with your lifestyle in mind.

For those who appreciate seamless functionality, the spacious kitchen and sun filled dining area provide a perfect space for entertaining. The heating options throughout the property offer year-round comfort with 2 heat pumps, inbuilt log burner, gas heating, underfloor heating and an AGA stove.

The patio area is ideal for alfresco dining or simply unwinding in the serenity of the surroundings.
