Find your city lim­its

MANY peo­ple look for a change of life­style but rather than the tra­di­tional sea or tree change, the ven­dors of a mod­ern home opted for city liv­ing.

They dis­cov­ered the Ade­laide prop­erty by ac­ci­dent five years ago and fell in love with it im­me­di­ately. At­tracted by the clever use of space and sleek ar­chi­tec­tural de­sign, they left their sub­ur­ban home of more than 30 years.

‘‘The de­sign is spec­tac­u­lar. It’s like you’re liv­ing within a re­sort,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘Hav­ing the pool, a lot of nat­u­ral light – it’s very con­tem­po­rary and quite unique.’’

Lo­cated on the south­ern side of Ade­laide’s CBD, the large three-bed­room prop­erty boasts quiet sur­rounds within walk­ing dis­tance of all the city’s hotspots.

‘‘It’s quiet but close to the vi­brancy of the mar­kets and restau­rants . . . three min­utes’ walk away,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘There are also ho­tels and restau­rants in the back streets and on Wright and Hal­i­fax streets.’’

Per­fect for a pro­fes­sional cou­ple, the home has a dou­ble garage and plenty of room to en­ter­tain.

‘‘This is an ac­tual house as well, which makes a big dif­fer­ence – it’s not apart­ment liv­ing,’’ the ven­dor says.

In­side, the sleek mod­ern feel of the prop­erty is in stark con­trast with sub­ur­ban liv­ing.

An open-air, so­lar-heated swim­ming pool fills the in­ter­nal court­yard sur­rounded by rooms, cre­at­ing a pri­vate oa­sis.

The front room, which houses the kitchen and liv­ing area, ex­tends on to a deck over the pool.

The bed­rooms and liv­ing ar­eas up­stairs are fin­ished in an equally mod­ern style, com­plete with a home theatre.

The large atrium pro­vides light through­out the home and a view to the pool be­low.

‘‘You could be any­where in the world,’’ the ven­dor says.

‘‘We’re not look­ing out on peo­ple. The front is frosted glass and that’s its ap­peal as well.

‘‘When you’re in the pool . . . you’re look­ing at the sky and when you’re in bed at night you’re look­ing at the sky.’’
