3 Derby St, Collingwood, VIC, 3066
Magnificent Sophia Terrace has a rich history having been constructed by the land owner and master plasterer Henry Adamson in 1876, who owned 4 side by side dwellings in Derby Street. The Terraces are all similarly-styled and as a group, these buildings have been preserved becoming an important heritage element in an area of Collingwood which has been substantially lost in later development. It is a rare privilege to be able to offer you our stunning townhouse. It combines its period character with tasteful modern improvements. Seconds from the Gertrude Street arts precinct, Smith Street cafes and transport, the two-storey townhouse features Adamson's exquisite plaster ceilings, Baltic floors, original staircase and ornamental fireplaces with a versatile floor plan.
Three upstairs bedrooms sleeping up to 8 guests, featuring a massive master bedroom with generous storage in the floor to ceiling built in robes. Grab a book and hideaway in the master on the reading chairs and coffee table. There is a TV in bedroom 2 and kids retreat in bedroom 3. A bathroom is located both upstairs and downstairs.
A sunlit living room with 55” Smart LED TV and free Wi-Fi is all yours to enjoy. There are plenty of books and magazines to flick through while snuggling up on the lounge or challenge your friends and family to a game of noughts and crosses.
