One of the two upstairs bedrooms also provides city views, with a two further bedrooms downstairs.

The downstairs floor was rented out in recent years to various businesses, but previously housed the space for late owner and haberdasher Peter Dee’s clothing store, Peter Dee Co.

Mr Dee’s wife Joanna still lives upstairs and is selling the home.

“They’ve owned it since about 1985,” said Nelson Alexander auctioneer Arch Staver.

“After (Peter) closed his business he leased the downstairs space to an acupuncturist and a beautician.”

The ground floor also has two bedrooms, in addition to a bathroom, kitchen and plenty of storage space. Another kitchen is located upstairs.

Mr Staver believed the home was built around the 1800s as a pub, with the numbers 1876 marked at the top of the building a potential nod to its origin.

A basement cellar is also evidence of its former life as a pub, as is the “stunning” Victorian facade.

The downstairs space has been previously used as a shop.

A number of potted plants are seen growing on the roof.

The iconic building boasts three frontages.

A small study nook is also found upstairs.

“I guess what make this a bit special is the rooftop terrace and garden,” Mr Staver added.

A number of potted plants are seen growing on the roof in the listing photos, next to the quaint courtyard which offers stunning views across the city.

Mr Staver said the home would likely attract someone who wants to work from home or run an enterprise on the ground floor.

“It would make a nice little office or home for any enterprise,” he said.

“It could also suit an investor.”
