Phone Sally Cameron for the private viewing time - 0412 915 108
This magnificent landmark sandstone villa has undergone an award winning restoration and extension that perfectly embraces historic elegance, and showcases an exceptional standard of sophisticated contemporary living. A floorplan of generous proportions offers versatility perfect for entertaining, everyday family comfort and privacy. Situated in a tightly held position with parkland frontage and immense street appeal, this is a rare and outstanding offering.
Graciously elevated and picturesque, the original slate floored wrap-around veranda is bound by beautiful iron lacework, overlooking established hedged gardens. The lobby entrance incorporates glorious fretwork and stained glass, and introduces limed floorboards that extend through grand formal living and dining. A sunny library with parkland views is fully lined with bookshelves and cabinetry, providing the ultimate home office/study.
Private and spacious, the master bedroom forms its own sumptuous retreat with his and hers dressing room, and huge ensuite with freestanding bath, double walk through shower, and heated floor and towel rail.
The striking designer kitchen is lined by bespoke cabinetry, and boasts a hidden pantry cupboard, European appliances, stone countertops and a central island bench. Nestled within the original section of the house, the kitchen is connected simply but masterfully through to the sensational open plan living extension, with views extending to the pool and gardens beyond.
The original rear stonework of the residence has been beautifully restored to form a stunning internal juxtaposition between old and new. Intersected and connected by a soaring glass atrium, vast casual living with gas fire and skylights is wrapped in glass, with sliders opening seamlessly to a wide terrace overlooking lawns to the side and poolside entertaining to the rear, all covered by automatic, sensored louvers.
The extension cleverly incorporates a separate kid’s wing. Floating granite stairs with glass balustrade access the upper floor with three bedrooms all with built-ins, and bathroom with heated towel rails. Below, a versatile room with adjacent bathroom, doors to the rear garden and surround sound is perfect for a home theatre, teenage retreat/ playroom, private guestroom, or 5th bedroom. A huge laundry provides extensive storage and entry to garage parking.
Finally, 3 original dry cellar rooms with outside access, offer flexible use from intimate nights for the wine connoisseur to storage.
Beautiful mature gardens and lawns that envelop the property can be fully enjoyed from the various terraces, decks and verandas. Taking centre stage is the resort style solar heated pool with north facing pavilion for soaking up the sun.
Further features abound and include top of the line security, automatic irrigation, ducted air-conditioning, Foxtel points, indoor/outdoor speakers, and undercover off street parking for 4 vehicles with handy gated access to the rear garden.
Ringed by parklands, and only minutes from the city, cosmopolitan O’Connell St, Adelaide Oval, North Adelaide Golf Course, the home is zoned for Adelaide Botanic High, Adelaide High, North Adelaide Primary and close to some of Adelaide’s premier private schools. This is an exemplary and iconic North Adelaide property that should not be missed.
