FEATURE LISTING: Enviable villa in sought-after Walkerville

Treated to a complete and stylish makeover by its current custodian, this spacious return verandah villa in Walkerville is just waiting for a new family to fall in love with it.

On a warm summer’s afternoon, there is nothing quite like sitting on your elevated verandah, basking in the sunshine, watching the world go by while sipping on a glass of crisp chardonnay.

Prestigiously positioned high on a large corner block, the sandstone verandah with dual street frontage creates a special first impression.

This expansive five-bedroom, three-bathroom home at 12 Lansdowne Terrace, Walkerville has been transformed from cosy character home to a modern classic with a complete interior renovation creating a harmony of old and new.

Owner Anola Kym purchased the property in 2011, finding it to be the perfect fit to accommodate her growing family.

“We loved the structure and character of the home, but we wanted to modernise it. We immediately renovated the interior in time to spend our first Christmas there as a family,” she says.

Anola embarked on a major renovation of the property’s interior, which involved replacing flooring and repainting walls throughout, in addition to refurbishing and modernising the custom kitchen, bathroom and living spaces.

Inspired by the beautiful hotels she stayed in while previously travelling for work, Anola ensured the interior design displayed traditional features to accentuate the property’s high ceilings and spacious living areas.

Upon entry through the ornately arched hallway hung with a trio of basket chandeliers, the home compromises a chic living space and formal dining room with feature gas fireplaces and spectacular crystal chandeliers.

A luxurious master suite boasts a walk-in robe and elegant en suite, tucked away behind feature cut-glass double doors.

The custom kitchen hosts timber benchtops, stainless appliances and a corner pantry with space for an intimate breakfast area.

Sunlight streams through beautiful French doors, bringing a melodious flow between indoor and outdoor entertaining.

The vast garden space offers an alfresco pavilion, perfect for entertaining adjacent elegantly manicured lawns that bloom on spring’s cue.

The property even possesses its own wine cellar to store your favourite vintages until the perfect moment to pop the cork.

In the highly sought-after Walkerville area, the property boasts unparalleled convenience with many local cafes, restaurants and shopping destinations as well as close proximity to the CBD.

The home also falls into the school zoning for Walkerville Primary School, Adelaide High and Adelaide Botanic High School, in addition to being just a 10-minute walk to Wilderness School.

With her children growing up, Anola is selling the property to move on to the next phase of her life. The sale is bittersweet, she says, knowing she will never find a house quite like this one again.

“I have so many fond memories of this house and sharing it with my loved ones, so it will be sad to see it go, but the time is right for me to move on and start another chapter of my life,” Anola says.

“I hope a new family will come and love it just as much as I do.”

The sale is being handled by Hamish Mill of Williams Property.
