For something special, choose a maisonette with a surprise exclamation mark in a surging suburb... - Harris Real Estate
13 Leslie Avenue Westbourne Park
2 1

From its Art Deco details, deceptively long parcel and the way it hushes the outside world, to the north-facing barn style extension that you never saw coming and speaks ahead of its time…

This is proof that a rare maisonette in surging Westbourne Park is simply worth waiting for.

Rare because oversized homes on indulgently large blocks are customary in this tree-lined neighbourhood with a prized zone pass to Westbourne PS and Unley HS, all just moments from Mitcham Square and Scotch and Mercedes Colleges.

Of course, we have nothing against those larger homes that add to the value – and street appeal – of a suburb that puts the CBD within 12 minutes.

We are simply saying this 2-bedroom Torrens titled home is a low-maintenance breath of fresh air – perfect for professionals, downsizing duos, or first-time parents in waiting.

Built in the 1930s, the owners’ mid-century furniture shines in a home with high decorative ceilings, charming brush box timber floors, two light-filled bedrooms and a front lounge room with a brick-laden fireplace.

An updated main bathroom and kitchen – boasting stone tops, integrated appliances, bundles of storage and bench space to appease the messiest of home cooks – headline a series of recent upgrades to go with that inspired ’90s extension…

Rising to 3.6m-high and framed in glass, this architectural exclamation mark takes an angled, light-grabbing departure from the norm and adds an equally impressive alfresco pavilion to boot.

The end result is not only a living space that inhales natural light and a big view of your lush, landscaped rear yard; but also confirms just how special this home really is.

More reasons to love this home:

– Torrens titled home on a leafy, quiet street
– Ducted reverse cycle heating and cooling
