The Yarra Street property was originally designed by John Beswicke, known as "Hawthorn's architect", who created some of the suburb's most famous buildings, including the Town Hall. 

The renovated home sustained period details of arched hallway, marble fireplaces and stained glass windows in a modern and contemporary space. 

The home was sold by Kay & Burton's Michael Armstrong and Sam Wilkinson after three weeks marketing.
