The cute 1850s Georgian Paddington home of creative director Seamus Dinnigan was sold in the countdown to its recent auction.

There's just 70 square metres space throughout the rare freestanding terrace which came with a $1.6 million to $1.8 million price guide through Will Manning at McGrath. 

It was marketed as a Cotswolds cottage style residence, just off Glenmore Road near Oxford Street.

Dinnigan, the brother of designer, Collette Dinnigan bought the Mary Place home in 2015 for $1.08 million from gallery owner Evan Hughes and his lawyer wife, Kate.

Dinnigan is creative director at Collette Dinnigan's office, as well as helping out on the design styling of his sister's many homes.

He also co-produced her first coffee table book, Obsessive Creative.

Paddington's median house price for two bedders sits at $1.6 million, according to CoreLogic.

The 1850s terrace dates to around the time the homes were built to accomodate those who worked at the nearby Victoria Barracks. It was before Paddington developed as a working-class area during the Victorian era when between 1860 and 1890, about 3800 terrace houses were built to give Paddington its charming, unique character.

Of course it went into decline after World War I, fell into a slum during the 1930s and pretty much remained that way until the bohemia push descended during the 1960s and turned renovating terraces into almost an art form.
