A touch of Deco in a one-bedroom garden flat so close to Jetty Road…
While family homes are a Glenelg East staple, it’s great to find a pied-a-terre in a sought-after stretch between the tram and Glenelg Oval.
Shining in its own lovely light, this appealing one-bedder – make that two when you squeeze a sofa bed into the study – has plenty of quirky charm within a generous envelope of garden greenery.
Classic seaside Art Deco, right down to its very own palm-fringed plot.
As one of four – two up, two down, it shares a ritzy 1938 apartment building at the confluence of two leafy streets, with lock-up garaging at the rear.
And with more elbow room than its modern counterpart, why settle for a bland box when you could be enjoying soaring ceilings and a flurry of character – banded glazing, plate racks, fretwork divide, fireplace – coupled with stylish updates and the modern comforts of today.
There’s nothing cookie cutter about the layout either.
Pass through the foyer, and you’ll find yourself in a carpeted hallway offering a cupboard for your outerwear before it rolls around the corner to the bedroom – a spacious double with built-in robes, ceiling fan, split system and garden view. Next up, that clever little study you’ll use as an office/occasional overnighter, and then a chic fully tiled bathroom with both bath and shower.
A glass door etched with the image of a paddle steamer adds further vintage appeal as it ushers you into the living spaces beyond.
Where a carpeted lounge, warmed by a gas fire, communes with lino-floored meals and refurbished kitchen areas via a cut-out and fretwork-crowned walk-through.
You can also access these from the rear (your carport) and side, where a courtyard looks forward to a more active alfresco role. That’s the great thing about this pad, its blissful privacy and generous space inside and out.
In a location that gets a big thumbs-up… Tennis courts at one end of the street, the tram at the other and Jetty Road’s parade of seaside fun just around the corner. Woohoo!
