old style to take your breath away

The Advertiser - Real Estate - - Real Estate -

THIS sub­stan­tial, circa-1900 res­i­dence has been de­scribed as breath­tak­ing by its sell­ing agent. Many of the orig­i­nal fea­tures have been re­tained over the past cen­tury.

The home, how­ever, is not without mod­ern up­grades.

Built to last by the cur­rent owner’s fam­ily, the orig­i­nal fea­tures have been well looked af­ter.

There are fire­places in two bed­rooms and for­mal lounge and din­ing room, and there is also a wide arched hall­way en­trance, in­tri­cate lead lighting and or­nate pressed steel ceil­ings.

Al­though at­trac­tive to many po­ten­tial buy­ers, the home also will ap­peal to a de­vel­oper, looking to ex­pand the al­ready size­able home on the spa­cious block.

The size of the block is im­pres­sive on its own, but the 1400sq m has been mostly filled with lush, well-main­tained gar­dens.

The kitchen and din­ing room have a great out­look over the rear gar­dens, and the for­mer also is equipped with gas cook­ing and a dish­washer, among other mod­ern up­grades.

There is also gas heat­ing and split-sys­tem air­con­di­tion­ing for year-round com­fort.

The home also has a mon­i­tored se­cu­rity sys­tem.

Each of the three bed­rooms is of good size and all have bonuses.

The mas­ter bed­room has an added study, ideal as a home of­fice or con­verted into an ex­tremely large walk-in wardrobe.

Bed­room two has two built-in cup­boards, and the third bed­room has a walk-in wardrobe as well as easy ac­cess to a stor­age cel­lar.

At the rear of the home is a per­gola, with an ex­ter­nal shed, toi­let and laun­dry.

Lo­ca­tion is also an­other high­light for the busy fam­ily, be­ing only five min­utes by car from the CBD and close to Ade­laide Air­port and the shops at Cen­tro Hil­ton.
