Property Description

Built in 1921, and not offered for sale since 1946 – a substantial Arts and Crafts House, 23 Yates is a house steeped in history and presents a superb example of the architectural movement. Designed by Robert MacBeth, whose prior commissions included Skibo Castle for Andrew Carnegie, the house has an imposing and highly detailed fronted façade and, internally, classic proportions and symmetry, with generous rooms, original windows, fireplaces, and beamed ceilings. The accommodation - accessed from a central three storey staircase which forms an integral part of the design - offers a variety of different spaces and all the pre-requisites for modern family living. The delight for detail, that is markedly evident in the exterior of 23, is subtly confirmed upon entry through the heraldic symbols present on floor tiles which provide all guests with a blessing of well being, knowledge, protection and strength; thus prevalence of rarity and craftsmanship is firmly established. Of particular note are both the library and living room, offering two versatile living spaces both having original open fireplaces, and an aspect which allows for expansive views over the forested ravine and complimented with views of the English styled gardens. There are double doors from the living room which allows access to the garden. The exceedingly large dining room graciously completes the principal spaces with art glass double doors. The kitchen is fitted with granite and mahogany floors, work surfaces of Corian, Snaidero cabinetry, a large dining area, and all filled with an abundance of natural light. The back staircase completes the linkage of the kitchen area with the bedrooms above and the laundry/work facility below. The galleried landing of the second floor accommodation provides four bedrooms (three with walk in closets), two bathrooms, and full stair access to the attic. The master bedroom includes a wood burning fireplace and three sides of windows. The gardens are mainly Pennsylvanian slate with an abundant array of established plants and shrubs that provide form and colour yet are anchored and enhanced by specimen trees. The patio area is secluded and private for alfresco dining. There is a single car garage included with the property. Yates is arguably the finest street in the city due to its historical provenance that created the varied streetscape of estates and bespoke family dwellings. The neighbourhood is a short walk to all amenities of entertainment, dining, banking, farmer’s market, golf and Ridley College 1889.
