With its exclusive passes to those ever-popular CBD high schools, this is a 1910 period villa with more perks the deeper you delve, just a stroll from The Parade and quirky cafes on surging Magill Road.
The long standing and very reputable Adelaide High School or the forward-thinking Adelaide Botanic High School? It’s an enviable conundrum facing this sandstone-fronted home with some inspired alterations to go with its beautifully preserved original features.
You won’t have to delve very deep to see how its stone facade, leadlight windows, fireplaces, polished pine floors, 11-foot decorative ceilings and prominent timber detailing conjure that better-with-age kind of beautiful — made even better by fresh white licks of paint and plantation shutters.
One of those alterations included a conversion of an original bedroom into what is today the master’s walk-in robe and sleek ensuite with under-floor heating and porcelain tiling.
If three bedrooms won’t suffice, then the front formal lounge will happily oblige alongside a formal dining room with its own sense of versatility and a sneaky servery window to the kitchen’s walk-in pantry.
And not just any kitchen; but an Alby Turner & Son creation with French Provincial style cabinetry and Rosieres freestanding double oven, solid Jarrah tops, Miele integrated dishwasher and one foot in the casual meals and family zone of the rear.
Saving arguably the most inspiring move of all for last, a wall of bi-foldable glass was added to beautifully blur the lines between the indoors and a rear yard with alfresco pavilion, paving, planter boxes, fire pit and the green privacy of a high Murraya hedge. This has to be the one.
