Rare city-fringe calm in a charming villa Garden of Eden
Where rich character and stone façades are a given, this extended C1925 two-bedroom villa has further appeal – more than its walkable metres to Glen Osmond Road and highly-prized zoning to Glenunga International High School…
Silence. Every hypnotic tick of the clock tells you just how whisper-quiet it is.
Carrying a distinguished air, timeless interiors, high ceilings, polished Baltic boards, abundant leadlight and two living zones, it’s bound to steal the hearts of young families or professionals eager to seize a 420sqm (approx.) preserved slice of near-city charm.
Two generous bedrooms with decorative fireplaces line a central hallway arriving at its first living room, one with the stature to stage a baby Grand…
And it has, we’re told.
Today, the vintage “crème brulee” light piece, glorious stained-glass outlook, and gas “Wonderfire” fireplace with its ambient glow are its notable talking points.
A welcome dash of snow-white contemporary comes from the fully-tiled bathroom, C2002, with its stone-topped vanity, full bath, hidden WC and frameless glass entry to its shower stall.
To the slate-floored extension where a country timber kitchen houses a stainless oven, la Germania gas cooktop, and picture window views – be it the Gothic stained-glass vision you see as you wash up, or the Edna Walling inspired garden that seemingly never ends beyond the living room French doors…
The home’s second living room swings open to an all-weather sanctuary with atmosphere (and a few friendly Murray magpies), enjoying dappled light through the Washington Thorn to a carpet of lush undergrowth, as the evergreen oak next door adds a superb summer canopy.
Hand-laid brick paths lead to a well-concealed garden shed.
From your wide and leafy street, Glen Osmond Road offers dining variety such as Hispanic Mechanic, Singapore House, The Arkaba and The Parkside Hotel, and this close to the world’s best shopping at Frewville is an 8-minute drive to the city.
Fall for the silence, convenience and charm of Florence.
