Formerly known as " Enfield Villa", and built circa 1863, and once an imposing private residence, the property is now comprised of similar style well-maintained apartments, and immediately you step into this charming building you instantly fell part of its rich local heritage and rich past , with an abundance of historical character. The apartment retains many original period features including high ceilings, large bright sash windows, deep skirtings, wood panelled doors, ceiling roses, and chandeliers.
