C1880 significance in a bluestone cottage with front row seats to the city.
As city busy passes by, Angas Street takes a quiet turn – and back in time – to one of the 13 remaining row cottages of “Elder Mews”, holding State Heritage significance and front row seats to amenities on its vibrant doorstep.
A doorstep bookended by Frome and Hutt Streets, with the lively East End at your beck and call.
Funded at the bequest of Sir Thomas Elder in1897, the cottages were built by Adelaide Workmen’s Homes as lodgings for the ‘honest and respectable workman’ allowing residents to live close to their jobs.
Over 120 years later, his legacy lives on.
Working-class or otherwise, No. 224 presents as a perfect city weekender, a come-and-go base for the student, or as a pretty place to land for the retiree looking to adopt a labour of love to its Jane Austen-like front and rear cottage gardens…
Just ask the neighbours, who love green-keeping the common grounds, keeping social within its close community, and keeping vigil.
Inside, the home’s liveable beauty is worth rolling your sleeves up for; freshly repainted, there’s value-adding scope by turning over the carpets and polishing its boards or reviving its basic timber kitchen and dining zone, maximising a private light-gifted garden reveal.
As the cellar underneath awaits its next batch of vintages.
And you’ll praise the present owners for renovating its bathroom and laundry – both wet areas being the grateful recipients of a contemporary splash of white with quality built-in storage.
Heating and cooling are limited to what Council will allow (approval is required for a roof-set ducted system) but with solid stone to insulate, gas heating and small A/C to the lounge plus a system to the main bedroom, you’ll be snug enough for now.
And what a prize this city location is, with free parking, right in time for Adelaide’s string of festivals; meet at Hutt Street, stroll to Rundle Street and the “Garden” in minutes, or cross the road to the Seven Stars before a show at the Bakehouse Theatre.
