2 beds 1 bath Apartment


A spacious two-bedroom art deco updated apartment on the Esplanade, with character features and original timber flooring.

This art deco two-bedroom one bathroom apartment (c.1926) combines character, including original timber flooring, with a contemporary update, reflecting its prized position, being a stroll across the road to the grass verge and along the path through the dunes to a delicious expanse of white sand and the sea, or in the other direction to the cosmopolitan lifestyle and nostalgic vibe of Semaphore Road.

This apartment offers the best of all worlds for first home buyers, downsizers, or holiday home buyers: period yet modern style living on the tightly held Semaphore Esplanade less than 20 km from Adelaide.

Entry is via the porch and into the apartment's entry foyer with original door fittings and decorative chandelier. To the right, through double-glass doors, is the family/dining area, with feature brick fireplace and gas heater. Other features include the dado picture rail, Artemide light fittings, reverse-cycle air conditioning, and original windows. A glass door opens to the light, bright and airy front sunroom that captures the sea breezes and opens up views to the dunes and sea beyond. A side door from this louvred sunroom provides access to outside.

From the entry, the second bedroom is directly ahead, and to the left a hallway opens to the generous main bedroom with overhead fan and reverse-cycle air conditioning. Further along the hallway is the completely refurbished bathroom, with white wall tiles, feature flooring tiles, heated towel rail, elevated vanity, and all-glass shower surround. The fully equipped galley-style kitchen has plentiful storage, and the laundry at the back, which provides linen storage and has direct access to the rear, opens to a paved courtyard and attractive garden setting.

A secure storage area is next to the front stairs and there is extra storage in the bike shed.

The property enjoys an impressive street presence and sits in a botanic-like original walled garden with lawn, making it the perfect spot for a cup of tea or sunset drink.

Semaphore Road, one of Adelaide's widest boulevards, has developed a style all of its own, with contemporary cafes in century old buildings rubbing shoulders with an array of shops, restaurants, and traditional pubs. It is also home to an historic library and the oldest purpose-built cinema in Adelaide. The 1920's Palais bathing pavilion on the foreshore is now the Semaphore Palais hotel.

Semaphore is zoned for LeFevre Primary and LeFevre High School, with Dominican School nearby. Ocean View College B-12 and Portside Christian College are in the near vicinity.

From the Esplanade, it's an easy commute by bus and train to the city, and West Lakes Shopping Centre is 10 minutes away by car.
