If it’s historic and honest you want within a vibrant and friendly community, this is it. “Lavender Cottage” – a c1900 2-bedroom villa, claiming a corner stake amongst turn-of-the-century character barely 2kms from North Terrace, still serves a neighbourly “hello” on the daily.
A treasure find with lifestyle afoot – a beer at The Wheatsheaf, dinner at Eatilly’s or Mr Sunshine’s, and groceries from Thebarton Foodland down the road – you could be next to polish this community-centric pocket.
The character villa, its cottage gardens, contemporary courtyard, and dual street functionality adds to the merit – the stone façade’s bay windows echo a pottery shopfront past while the gated driveway (off Albert Street) greets a carport, part laundry, part workshop/garage – outbuildings awaiting their next possibly commercial venture at the hands of the willing.
Quaint, and full of soul and quirk, the home offers 2 bedrooms, a living room, and a formal dining room ahead of a rear eat-in kitchen and basic bathroom; its ready-to-better interiors include a decorative living room fireplace, slate floors, carpets, linoleum, and loads of timber accents – panelling, slatted ceilings, and custom joinery a legacy passed on by the home’s 35-year owner.
Restore, reinvent, reimagine – and here, there is every reason to take the plunge.
Close to premier schools and the free city tram, Linear Park trails, Summer Sounds at Bonython Park, Plant4 Bowden’s eatery array, the Brickworks Marketplace, even North Adelaide Golf Course – there’s a bona fide sweet side to this semi-industrial city fringe…
