It captures your attention from the street with its unique design and garden wall.
But it is hard to imagine what will be revealed beyond the striking facade until you step inside.
The two-bedroom home at 44 Tooke Street in Cooks Hill is being marketing by McGrath Newcastle City's Tammy Hawkins with an "entry level" guide of $700,000.
For the past six years it has been the home of film producer Kelly Boulton, who is reluctantly moving on to another project.
She has transformed the Cooks Hill house, which she has "fallen in love with", into an urban retreat by making the most of the space available and adding timber and greenery to give the property life and warmth.
"It's a high building and the beautiful thing that I fell in love with was the vertical space," Ms Boulton said.
"From the outside it looks like a little gingerbread house but you go inside and it's so much bigger than you could imagine because of that vertical space and the light. It's bright all of the time."
Features include Blackbutt flooring, custom-made Oak shelves and a paved outdoor entertaining area surrounded by lush wall gardens.
It is set for auction on March 23 and has attracted plenty of interest.
It is open for inspection at 11am on Saturday.
