Historic Kensington House is spectacular - Never extended, this original heritage mansion showcases incredible turn-of-the-century architecture.

Prominently located on the corner of Kensington Road and George Street, it is in the heart of the action yet an escape from reality too.
While it retains Norwood’s charms, it is also a bustling, city-fringe location, a mere 3km to the very heart of the Adelaide CBD.
Parking for The Parade sometimes almost reaches back to Kensington House, it is literally that close.
A relaxing escape with country ambiance, you can still enjoy the ultimate of fast-paced city living.
Kensington House is foremost an exceptional family residence on immense and perfectly coutured grounds, but there are a multitude of options for business and commercial integration, as is currently the case (subject to the necessary council consents).
Meticulously renovated throughout in 2007, this elegant yet commanding residence features rooms of vast proportions, adorned with the glow of period features, stately fireplaces, 4m ceilings, plush window treatments and Carrera marble bench tops in bathrooms and kitchens.
There are so many zones - multiple living areas, both formal and informal, multiple entertainer's terraces, three to four to five bedrooms, depending on configuration, three kitchens and three large cellar rooms. There’s also extensive undercover and endless off-street parking, in addition to a detached fully self-contained apartment.
There’s such potential to reorganise the way you live. Currently mixed use, it’s also perfect for multi-generational families. There are facilities for international guests or visiting families, potential to further develop, potential for amazing garden spaces, potential for future ’anything’.
There’s a grand entrance hall with anteroom plus gracious formal reception area complete with fireplace (but gas convenience) reminiscent of the Great Halls of London. A second imposing entrance off George Street is perfect for multi-use thanks to the extensive visitor car parking.
The classic formal rooms feature box windows. There’s also a formal lounge, Theatre room, formal dining room with access both upstairs and down, and a guest suite that’s so private from the entire residence. Downstairs, the whole family can stay toned in the gym or optional theatre room.
The north wing offers two bedroom suites, kitchen and everyday family living, as well as an outdoor deck. There’s convenient access to the wine cellar closed off by contemporary glass balustrade.
The east wing provides flexible options for further residential living with existing approval for commercial office use. The George Street entrance features the master suite with huge walk in robe and option to create a lavish en-suite. There’s also a second lounge or bedroom and powder rooms, all renovated to reflect the grandeur of the era. The tone is in keeping with the rest of the residence, yet features all the technology requirements for today’s connected world.
