Henley property offers holiday at home

Strong initial interest in a sophisticated, modern home in Henley Beach South has highlighted a recent surge in demand for lifestyle properties.

With reduced capacity to travel because of coronavirus restrictions, some South Australians are instead seeking homes where they can enjoy leisure activities in their own backyard.

The contemporary property at 35 Hobart Road, Henley Beach South certainly fits that bill, both in terms of location and amenities.

“I don’t think it’s unreasonable to suggest there are more people seeking these type of lifestyle homes,” Toop&Toop Sales Partner Tim Thredgold says.

“This particular property is a good example.

“It’s a 600m walk to have the sand between your toes.

“A number of the people who have shown interest in this home are coming from suburbs around the city fringe and are now looking for a property where they can enjoy all the benefits of living by the coast.”

The Torrens-titled home offers approximately 357m2 of living space over two levels.

It features four bedrooms plus study nook, the spacious master with deluxe en-suite and walk-in robe.


The designer kitchen boasts European appliances, stone benchtops, integrated dishwasher and a large butler’s pantry, all overlooking the light-filled north-facing open-plan living and dining area offering direct access to the alfresco entertaining space.

Thredgold says the home’s flexible floorplan and exacting design and build quality are among its strong selling points.

“There’s no doubt it has a bit of pizazz and you get a real sense of quality as soon as you walk through the front door,” he says.

“While it’s a home that could suit those looking to downsize, there’s still ample accommodation.

“There’s also the flexibility of having a master suite downstairs or that space could be used as a third living area.

“This home and the one next door were built by the same builder in 2014 - and the builder lives in the other one.

“The owners are actually downsizing again and they’re buying a home created by the same builder.

“You couldn’t get a much stronger endorsement.”

Thredgold is calling for best offers for 35 Hobart Street, Henley Beach South by 5pm on Thursday, October 29.
