Secure living in quiet street
Security attracted the vendor to this home, writes Tom Dougherty.
THE SECURITY of a property at Gilberton attracted vendor Trevor Hallion and he found it to be a pleasant area with a good neighbourhood. ‘‘I liked the security and high ceilings, and it was new when I bought it,’’ he says.
‘‘It’s a quiet street, I was used to living in Medindie, you never got to see your neighbours but at least here you see your neighbours and the area is friendly.’’
The Torrens-titled contemporary home has three double bedrooms, with the master featuring a built-in robe, access to a private courtyard, and an ensuite with a shower.
The other two bedrooms are situated just off of the entrance and they overlook the front of the property.
In the middle of the home is an openplan kitchen, dining and living room with bi-fold doors that lead out to a paved entertaining area.
The kitchen features a breakfast bar, a dishwasher, white cupboards, and stainless steel appliances.
‘‘It is a modern sort of house with high ceilings, most of the places I looked at had low ceilings so I liked this place,’’ he says.
‘‘It has a private courtyard and you can shut the doors and no one has any idea what’s behind them.
‘‘It is a pretty comfortable place, this is light and friendly.’’
The entertaining area is paved and has a pond and a low-maintenance garden.
Located near the bedrooms is a bathroom, which has a bath and a shower.
The property has a double garage with an automatic roller door and side-street access.
There is also a garden shed in the backyard and located next to the kitchen is a laundry.
‘‘It would suit a business couple, somebody by themselves,’’ Mr Hallion says. Located on Torrens St, the home is close to Linear Park and North Adelaide.
Schools in the area include Walkerville Primary School, Wilderness and St Peter’s College.
Public transport is easily accessible on Walkerville Tce, and Northcote Tce.
