Explore the outstanding potential of this original Victorian terrace in one of Darlington's best pockets surrounded by cafes and restaurants in a creative urban enclave on the city fringe. A former shop dating to the late 1890s, the two-storey terrace retains its original shopfront facade and offers a prime canvas for revival on 130sqm approx. Bordering Redfern, 300m to the station, this rapidly transforming urban precinct is a renowned educational and cultural hub and one of Sydney's most dynamic inner-city hotspots. Soaring 3.8m ceilings, Kauri floorboards and a courtyard with a sunny northerly aspect present the ideal foundations for renovation with rear lane access to garaging a massive bonus and making for an easy build. Located on the edge of the University of Sydney, this vibrant inner-city pocket is a buzzing arts precinct where galleries and studio spaces define the urban landscape, 500m to Carriageworks' cultural hub and farmers market, and just over 2km to the CBD.
