Designed by Joseph Walker and constructed in 1875 , the Young Street Terraces have high historic significance due to being part of the first Government House site, originally used as nurses’ quarters as part of the Sydney Hospital. The buildings demonstrate the later post Government House phase of site development, and are the only buildings which utilised the site to now remain.
Their relative simplicity contrasts with the more opulent public administrative buildings built at the end of the 19th century showing the change in attitude to public buildings. Behind the Victorian Filigree architectural style and cast iron balustrades, the building offers a floor area of 315sqm. The interior detail is largely intact in terms of skirting boards, architraves, doors, windows, staircases and fireplaces.
Adapted for office use, a rare opportunity exists to lease the three level character terrace which features a private balcony and great natural light. Located on the corner of Young and Bridge Streets at the foot of One Farrer’s Governor Phillip Tower, the terrace provide a unique business address in a prime CBD location.
