ren­o­vated villa keeps char­ac­ter

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - West -

THIS blue­stone villa, built in 1878, has been ex­pertly main­tained and now awaits an­other de­voted owner. It re­cently has been up­dated and ren­o­vated, yet has lost none of its char­ac­ter.

The kitchen has been up­graded, but with con­sid­er­a­tion for the home’s style, with solid tim­ber cup­boards, a large is­land bench, stain­less steel ap­pli­ances and the orig­i­nal fire­place.

From here, you can ac­cess the din­ing area and ca­sual liv­ing room, all part of an open­plan sec­tion.

The four bed­rooms are at the front of the home, in a sep­a­rate area to en­sure peace and quiet.

All four of the main rooms at the front have their orig­i­nal high ceil­ings and fire­places.

An­other po­ten­tial bed­room, ad­join­ing the liv­ing area, is now used as a study and home of­fice.

Out­side, bud­ding en­ter­tain­ers will be im­pressed with the un­der-cover seat­ing area over­look­ing a large swim­ming pool.

A glass fence sep­a­rates the two, and with shade and weather blinds, sand­stone paving, sur­round­ing plants and mood lighting, a re­lax­ing at­mos­phere is al­ways en­sured.

There is an­other ver­sa­tile room to the rear of the home that is used as a study/home of­fice.

To the rear of the prop­erty, an­other great en­ter­tain­ing area is pro­vided, with a bar and space for a pool ta­ble.

It has a sec­ond bath­room with di­rect ac­cess from the pool and the rum­pus room.

Other use­ful ad­di­tions to the home in­clude gas heat­ing, re­verse-cy­cle air­con­di­tion­ing, handy stor­age space and park­ing for five ve­hi­cles.

The beach is within walk­ing dis­tance. Ade­laide is half an hour away, but with plenty of nearby shop­ping, own­ers will have ev­ery­thing they need.
