A low-maintenance pad offers city living in a quiet location, writes Thomas Conlin.
RENOVATED extensively by the current owners, an Adelaide pad presents an opportunity for modern city living in a great location. A quiet side-street location close to Whitmore Square gives the twobedroom home a peaceful, private appeal only a stone’s throw from nearby restaurants and nightspots.
Also close to the Central Market, the vendor says the home would suit a young professional couple or retirees looking for a low-maintenance, centrally located property.
A number or recent renovations carried out by the vendors – one of whom is an award-winning interior designer – give the interior a light and open feel.
The bathroom has received a designer renovation within the past year while new flooring has been installed in the two double bedrooms, which include build-in robes.
The downstairs living areas have been upgraded with porcelain tiling.
The vendor says the home is given added privacy and security as it is not attached to surrounding properties.
‘‘It’s a freestanding townhouse - something that’s relatively unique these days compared with a lot of the new townhouses around the city,’’ the vendor says.
A west-facing balcony terrace takes advantage of the afternoon sun and is accessible through the main bedroom.
‘‘It looks over the top of the row cottages in that southwest corner of the city,’’ the vendor says.
An enclosed courtyard garden, with a neat planted border, is perfect for outdoor entertaining and relaxing.
The home also has secure, undercover off-street parking.
