WHEN Miriam Whit­ford re­turned from Melbourne to Ade­laide six years ago, she had her signs on one type of prop­erty – a blue­stone cot­tage in Park­side.

Soon af­ter mov­ing back, she found what she was look­ing for – her Dunks St home.

‘‘I fell in love with the place im­me­di­ately,’’ she says.

‘‘It’s a fan­tas­tic place for en­ter­tain­ing.

‘‘It’s got a great liv­ing and din­ing space, which is great for din­ner par­ties.

‘‘The other thing I fell in love with was the orig­i­nal fea­tures – beau­ti­ful lead­lights – and the size of the house.’’

Two bed­rooms, each with built-in robes and al­most iden­ti­cal in size, are lo­cated on ei­ther side of the en­try hall in the 1880-built blue­stone cot­tage. The liv­ing area is fur­ther along the en­try hall, with an ad­ja­cent din­ing room.

A kitchen and bathroom are lo­cated to­wards the rear, open­ing to an out­door en­ter­tain­ing area, which over­looks man­i­cured gar­dens de­signed by Amanda Pryor.

‘‘There’s also an ex­tra room at the back which is handy and can be used as a study or a stu­dio,’’ Ms Whit­ford says. ‘‘There are a lot of two-be­d­room homes in Park­side that don’t have this much space.’’
