More like something out of a storybook than just another home, to call this C1910 weatherboard cottage a charmer would be the ultimate understatement.
Perched at the high side of its gum-studded Blackwood address, it’s a first impression worthy of a 3-bedroom home punctuated by eye-pleasing symmetry, surrounding greenery and return verandah.
The ‘woody’ theme continues inside where jarrah floors and pine wall panelling feature prominently amongst two main living zones separated only by an exposed brick feature fireplace.
Take note of the lounge room’s leadlight window; salvaged from the old John Martin’s building and one of many beautiful quirks of a home that was sympathetically extended along its journey.
To add a master bedroom with a walk-in robe, ensuite and private access to the return verandah was an inspired move. As was dressing the solid timber country-style galley kitchen in a zesty citronella.
With tessellated tiles, a freestanding claw bath and exposed piping, the main bathroom is a treasure of its own in a home that reveals a rear alfresco pergola/patio in a gem of a rear yard.
A rear yard featuring veggie patches, herb gardens, a powered shed with workshop and storage mezzanine, and the feeling you could be anywhere.
You are in fact just seconds from Blackwood’s convenient heart and not much further from some of Adelaide’s most esteemed colleges, and the CBD beyond. Well placed? That’s an understatement.
