Be the centre of attention
This one’s well planned, writes Tom Dougherty.
ASYMMETRICAL cottage at Upper Sturt was on a big block and still easily accessible from the city, vendor Melinda Chapman says. ‘‘We found this property and it had over an acre of land, which was great, it was like being in the country without being more than 20 minutes away from the city,’’ Ms Chapman says.
There are three bedrooms, the master bedroom at the front featuring a built-in robe and an ensuite with shower.
‘‘The master is massive, you really get a sense of space with the vaulted ceilings, every window has a gorgeous view and it doesn’t feel like you have neighbours,’’ she says.
One of the other bedrooms, which is at the back of the house, has a walk-in robe.
There is a loungeroom at the front, which has a fireplace, and there is a dining room adjacent.
The kitchen is located in the middle of the property and there is a family room next to it.
The kitchen features wooden cupboards, a breakfast bar, white stone benches and a raked ceiling.
‘‘It is fantastic, you always feel like you are in the centre of what is going on,’’ Ms Chapman says.
There is a combustion heater in the family room and it has french doors that open out to a covered pergola area with a paved floor.
‘‘We have had lots of barbecues and parties out there, it has been a great place to bring up kids,’’ she says.
There is also a bathroom with a bath at the back of the home, and there is a laundry with external access.
Other features of the home include a cellar and a 60,000 litre rainwater tank which is plumbed to the house.
On the grounds of the property is a shed, a cubby house and a chicken coop. At the front there is a wrought-iron gate and a timber fence.
There are two verandas at the front of the home which look over a lawned area and an established garden, and there is also a veranda attached to the side of the house.
Located on Upper Sturt Rd, the property looks over the Belair National Park.
