Glen Osmond 2A Playford Street

Presenting "Woodley House", a most historic, iconic and substantial Victorian Style Villa (Circa 1843) of splendid proportion, 6 kms from Adelaide CBD.

Disposed over three luxurious levels, that have been tastefully and meticulously enhanced and refurbished by the current owners. North/South floodlit synthetic tennis court, wine cellar and glorious garden grounds.

This landmark family residence, of over 700 sqm (approx.), is sited on some 5884 sqm (approx.), offering almost 270 degrees of breathtakingly elevated views over Adelaide to St. Vincent's Gulf.

The pedigree of the residence is unrivalled, with Osmond Gilles (the first Colonial Treasurer of South Australia), purchasing land in 1842, and subsequently commenced building, of what was to become a Grand Victorian Style Villa.

By way of history, as late as 1898, there were few buildings between "Woodley House" and the city, and the suburbs of St. Georges, Linden Park, Glenunga, Tusmore, Toorak Gardens, Dulwich and Rose Park, were non-existent.

The entrance to the Estate is via an enchanting olive tree shrouded driveway, which is a most magical way to approach this stately residence, as it mystically appears.

Showcasing an outstanding lifestyle opportunity, with this family Estate undergoing major restoration, under the watchful eye of Sydney-based Architect, Ian Traill, and his wife Fiona, with great attention to detail, along with superb taste, the residence has been brought very much up to the current expectations of the market.

Equivalent of some 16 main rooms, this beautifully styled family home has been fully rewired and plumbed, along with extensive Cat 6 LAN Internet cabling to all habitable areas, ensuring excellent Internet coverage, and efficient Smart TV operation throughout.

Proudly displaying a myriad of well-preserved character features, including high ceilings with ornamental cornices and ceiling roses, high skirting boards, imported solid French Oak panelled windows, double hung and casement windows, and French doors, presenting throughout.

This grand entertainer enjoys exceptional formal and informal living and entertaining areas, in which to exist, for the growing family, or for hosting large gatherings, whether inside or out.

The residence flows exceptionally well with 3.9 metre high ceilings in the entrance hallway, which flows into the very generous formal sitting room, with Italian marble fireplace and three sets of French doors, which open to the sweeping verandah, which encompasses the front part of the residence, so you can fully appreciate this magical, and elevated setting.

Apart from the several more formal areas, there are numerous casual living and entertaining zones in which to exist, including a most spectacular north/westerly orientated light-filled Conservatory, with two feature chandeliers, exposed timber rafters, with black metal tie rods, beautiful bluestone walls, and dual French doors, which flow out to the most stunning Chateau style, vine-clad entertaining area with stone wood fired pizza oven.

The master chef's kitchen is quite the showpiece, with its crafted stonewalls, Carrera marble benches and 2-Pack cabinetry.

The kitchen also boasts an ensemble of Miele appliances, including 2 x ovens, gas cook top, dishwasher, rangehood and large double bowl butlers sink. A generous pantry is also of great assistance.

A bar area is ideally positioned alongside the Conservatory, with Woodley "Queen Adelaide Quality Table Wines" leadlight signage, bottle storage racks, long timber servery, wall hung glass racks, feature stonewalls and three crystal pendant lights.

This bar area is of great assistance when entertaining, given it is nestled between the kitchen and the Conservatory, making entertaining a breeze.

This delightful, sun-drenched family zone, not only offers the ultimate entertaining zone, that can comfortably host large gatherings, but also produces some of the most spectacular views of Adelaide, right down to the coast. The Tuscan/Chateau ambience, this seamless indoor/outdoor setting creates, I believe, is unrivalled in Adelaide.

Given the superior elevation of the home, the outlooks are stunning from nearly every room in the house, taking full advantage of this most picturesque and elevated surround.

Further living areas include a downstairs library/entertaining room with immaculate repointed stonewalls, and feature steel wall framing for artwork, or the like, (all with Cat 6 LAN Internet access, for Smart TV operation).

Accommodation is extravagant, whether for the growing family, or for fortunate guests, who are lucky enough to be invited.

All 6 bedrooms are serviced by 4 stylishly presented new bathrooms, and two additional powder rooms, with 4 of the 6 bedrooms having stunning new ensuites.

A floodlit, North/South tennis court is perfect for the growing family, whether it be for tennis, cricket, football etc., all year round, and is overlooked
