169 King Street E
169 King Street East was designed in 1885 by William Newlands for banker Donald Fraser. Please let us introduce you to Donald Fraser House. This 3 bay , 2 storey, high brick foundation house has been meticulously restored to its original splendour. The corners of the façade have quoins with raised panels and the channeled hood-moulds over all windows have decorative keystones and ends. The paired doors open to a vast foyer with original plaster reliefs propelling you to a design masterpiece. Vaulted ceilings, cut glass, and period chandeliers draw the eye up whilst the decorative consistencies of times past are easily apparent. The beautifully finished eat-in kitchen holds wonderful space overlooking the rear courtyard and affording time for family to cook, dine and visit. Separate dining room and parlour each beg for entertainment and memories to be made. The upper levels connect large principal bedrooms and a very generous master suite with walk-in closets. The central hall, exits to a second floor veranda to survey the bustle of the city below. On the upper level, a gentleman's parlour complete with work out facilities and bathroom with walk-in multi-headed shower spa. When you adjourn to the lower level, you will find your custom pub complete with 3 taps and a 500 bottle wine room. His and her restrooms are of course provided for you and your guests with your home offices, neatly tucked away. Completely upgraded to today's standards of heating, cooling, electrical and plumbing, all the difficult work has been completed. The rear courtyard is an oasis unlike any other in the city with a full pool, and stamped concrete surrounding this beautiful space, it is a complete compound protecting family and pets to roam freely about the property. Double electric gates, open to a two-car brick garage with loft space. This home requires very little maintenance as the grounds are finished with red granite, manicured lawns, and irrigation drip.
