SOLD BY JAMIE BROWN 0413 000 887

Prominent and historic landmark beachfront residence (circa 1916), superbly elevated to capture life by the sea.

Perfectly pitched, high on the sand dunes, and boasting a commanding corner allotment of over 1,000 sqm (approx.), with two street frontages, and with vehicular garaging off both "The Broadway" and the rear lane access. Large wine cellar.

This most eminent and admired residence, showcases a timeless street elegance, featuring an encompassing deeply shaded arcaded stone-clad verandah, allowing the resident to fully capture this most prized position, all year round.

Enchanting garden grounds compliment and surround the residence, with a large lawned area to the rear, taking in elevated views of the ocean.

An abundance of classic ornate features, which have been well preserved over time, display an inherent charm of a bygone era, with polished boards, leadlight windows, high ornate ceilings and marble fireplaces, being only a few of the attributes on show.

The formal rooms are gracious, including sitting room, smoking room and dining room, which flows out through leadlight French doors, to the sweeping sandstone verandah.

Accommodation is very comfortable, with four bedrooms in total, including a two-storey self-contained stone/vine-clad outbuilding, with ensuite bathroom and kitchenette, perfect for visiting guests, or a teenager's retreat.

The very large master bedroom, with walk-in robe and ensuite bathroom, enjoys stunning ocean views through the beautiful leadlight windows.

The home would respond well to further renovation, with potential for roofline addition, together with enough room for a more substantive extension to the rear, allowing for expansive contemporary casual light-filled living zones, which would comfortably cater for the future demands of a growing family (STCC).

It would be difficult to find a more classic beachfront offering in South Australia, that is quite livable in its current form, but also presents enormous potential to the incoming purchaser, to realise the property's ultimate future existence.

Ridiculously eminent, and a most regal position, being 15 seconds from your front gate to the sand, or a picturesque short walk along the grassed South Esplanade, to fashionable Jetty Road's cafe and retail precinct, and only a short tram ride to the city.

Once it's gone, how long will you have to wait before it comes on the market again?, if at all! Premium blue chip coastal opportunity, not to be missed.

Excellent garaging and wine cellar.
