Kingly features are simply grand
Opulent living in a beautiful, quiet suburb is hard to pass up, writes Tom Dougherty.
THE larger rooms of a bungalow was attractive for vendor Mark Brindal when he first saw the property more than 20 years ago, and the location clinched the deal.
‘‘The Liberal AttorneyGeneral Robert Lawson said to me something that didn’t occur to me but I think it is true, ‘Kings Park is Unley Park understated’, and it is, it’s a beautiful area,’’ he says.
‘‘It is a quiet area with nice, tree-lined streets.
‘‘This is a bungalow which we were very lucky with, it has ornate plaster ceilings, beautiful fireplaces everywhere and lovely timber floors.’’
Built in 1930, the brick home has four bedrooms, with the master featuring a fireplace, a walk-in robe and an ensuite with a bath.
Two of the other bedrooms also feature fireplaces.
The kitchen, which was updated eight years ago, is in the middle of the home and it features a walk-in pantry, a butler’s pantry and white timber cupboards.
At the front of the home is a formal loungeroom, with a door through to the formal dining room, both of which have polished timber floors.
‘‘It is a house that in a sense is made for entertaining, the back has a big family room with an alfresco area with a three-metre wide veranda, you can do either formal or informal entertaining,’’ Mr Brindal says.
The casual living area at the back is tiled and has views to the garden, which has a lawn area, and one of the bedrooms at the back has french doors out to the covered area. The property also has a bathroom with a bath and a shower, a laundry with a linen closet, a carport at the side and a shed with a panel-lift door in the backyard.
