Haven is best of both worlds
Enjoy the quiet end of a retail strip, writes Katrina Stokes.
LOOKING over the tops of a jacarandalined avenue and across the Adelaide Hills, it’s deceiving to be sitting above King William Rd. The three-bedroom apartment is situated away from the buzz of shops and restaurants at the quiet end of one of Adelaide’s shopping strips.
The vendors, who have owned the property for three years, have bought a larger home two streets away where they plan to raise their nine-monthold child.
‘‘We bought it as a young professional couple because we wanted to be close to the shops and the city,’’ one of the vendors says.
‘‘It would be suitable for anyone who wants a lifestyle change but is for someone who appreciates a good-sized house.’’
Featuring three bedrooms, the apartment is set over 200sq m on on the second floor of a retail premises.
‘‘The size of the master bedroom was what really sold it for us. It’s like a suite,’’ the vendor says.
Built seven years ago, the property features floating timber floors, sandstone floor tiles and neutral tones.
A bright-red Jag kitchen, which lies in the open- plan living area, includes Smeg appliances, a walkin pantry and Caesar-stone counters. The apartment – set close to boutique shops, restaurants and cafes – has been a joy to live in, the vendor says.
‘‘You can walk up the road on a Saturday morning and grab some fresh rolls or go for a breakfast and coffee,’’ the vendor says.
