A superb character-filled family residence where original features blend perfectly with the new to create light, bright and beautiful spaces.
Plus the luxury of a self-contained studio/retreat.
Set well back from the street and ideally sited on a 668sqm (approx.) corner allotment, the original character of this circa 1925 residence is indicated by the picket fence and meandering brick pathway to the porch and front door. On entry, it is obvious that stylishly deft hands have thoughtfully reshaped and refashioned the home over time.
Quality and lifestyle are touchstones in every aspect, and this extends to the traditional and beautifully maintained garden at the front, side and rear.
From entry, the main bedroom to the right has French doors and plantation shutters that open on to the garden at the front. The room has large built-in robes and a recently added ensuite. Bedroom two and three are also made subtle with the light from plantation shutters and they also have built-in robes.
A formal lounge, with gas log heater, is at the other side of the passage, creating a private retreat and wonderful separation of living. The hallway here opens on to the highly desirable north-facing open-plan kitchen/dining/family room. Light and bright, this space is the heart of the home with modern kitchen and features timber flooring and large timber sliding doors opening on to the decked verandah. Cafe blinds make this an ideal spot for year-round al fresco entertaining.
The generous main bathroom, which has been more recently re modelled and renovated with bath, is to the right of this space, along with a separate laundry and abundant overhead storage.
The studio/retreat across the back garden is completely self-contained, with kitchen (with integrated fridge and freezer) and bathroom. The space is serviced by split-system air-conditioning.
There is side-by-side parking under a double carport from Wycliff Street and an automatic roller door provides additional security.
Located between Fullarton and Glen Osmond roads, the home is in the catchment areas for popular Glenunga International High School, and in easy proximity to Loreto, Walford, Annesley, Pulteney, Scotch and Mercedes.
The area is a local shopping hub, with the famed Burnside Village nearby and the local Frewville Foodland awarded the nation's-and world's-best IGA supermarket.
