Lead with luxury by the sea & Jetty Road in a 1925 bungalow reborn…

Are you ready for this? Happily occupied for the past 20 years by the current owners, a reimagined 1925 sandstone bungalow betters its beach lifestyle leaving the crowds behind for a wander to the tram, Jetty Road, and prized zoning to Brighton Secondary School…

In Glenelg East, all of this is a big deal. The towering pines are your reminder.

So too, is the home’s character not only enhanced by a street lined by trees and equally house-proud neighbours, but by its elaborate custom electric gates costing a small fortune alone…

This huge home offers 1 or 2 living zones, or 3 or 4 bedrooms – a functional floorplan that makes perfect family sense.

Baltic pine floors, ornate fretwork, lofty ceilings, grand rooms, and decorative fireplaces – the home’s period embellishments rewarded with a European artist’s detailed eye but wait till you see the 2 luxurious designer bathrooms.

The first, with its pedestal vanity and clawfoot bath, nestles between bedrooms 1 and 3; the master bedroom graced with huge walk-in robes assures us it’s one wall away from becoming an ensuite.

The enormous 2nd bathroom, awash in Italian porcelain tiles, soaks into the luxe of a cocoon bath – it’s insane.

In more timeless European style, the custom kitchen flaunts American Oak, engineered stone, a 6-burner gas stove and a stainless oven with internal thermostat control – a whizz for smoked duck they say – and serves the light-filled open plan living for fine dining.

Sliding glass greets drought hardy and proudly organic landscaping fringed with almond, citrus and stone fruit trees, borrowing shade from neighbours you can’t see, and revolves around a gazebo in true alfresco style; visiting birdlife only adds to the magic.

More magic – a 3-minute walk to Glenelg Primary, St. Peters Woodlands Grammar and The Mediterranean Café nearby, even a bike track beside the tram times a city cycle in around 18 minutes.

Live close to the sea, in luxury, without the crowds. Here’s how.
