old style to take your breath away
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.
