Award-winning artist Sarah Louise Ricketts is selling her designer Carlton statement home.
The textile artist’s work and studio is on show at 19 Drummond Street, for sale with a $4-$4.4m price guide.
The expansive inner-suburban terrace’s bold style perfectly matches Ms Ricketts’ colourful felt creations, which have been recognised across the world via exhibitions and awards.
Nelson Alexander Carlton North agent James Pilliner said an extension designed by Robert Simeoni was added by the vendor in the past decade.
“(Simeoni) oversaw the construction of the open space and ensured the line of sight connected well to the older part of the home,” Mr Pilliner said.
“The front of the house still looks original and pays respect to the heritage of the Victorian era.”
A front formal living room, arched hallway, multiple ornate fireplaces and a terraced balcony are elegant features of the home.
Modern style is found in the kitchen with stone benchtops and a breakfast bar, a games room, and an outdoor terrace that leads to a rooftop deck.
Other features include a self-contained studio above the double garage and a cosy family gathering zone with feature gas fireplace.
Mr Pilliner said the five-bedroom property was one of Carlton’s larger offerings and it was time for Ms Ricketts to downsize.
He added the terrace was also in one of the “tightly held” parts of the suburb, where buyers frequently battled to break in.
CoreLogic shows the property previously changed hands for $1.3m in 2007, prior to renovations.
The prized package’s expressions of interest campaign closes on March 3.
