A Grand Residence Set on Large Elevated Grounds in Exclusive Walkerville …
Set on a significant and prestigious landholding approximating 2,241sqm, this grand c.1920s residence is the definition of a prominent lifestyle property. Its distinguished and historic return-veranda glory fuses with an expansive hi-tech extension to offer stately family living with five-bedrooms, five-bathrooms and a pool in idyllic grounds.
The magnificent restored façade stands proudly behind secure electric gates, which open to a turnaround gravel driveway that stretches past a vast expanse of lawn providing the perfect place for summer soirees.
Embraced by a wrap-around timber veranda, the grand entrance creates a lasting first impression with soaring ceilings, leadlight windows and restored floorboards spanning from a guest wing with remodelled ensuite to the right, and formal entertaining zone to the left.
Creating an elegant arena for dinner parties, a cosy fireplace sets the mood between spacious lounge and dining rooms. A brick-feature walled home office/ library with separate entry is ideal for a those working from home.
The contemporary extension is a masterpiece of cohesive design that transitions between old and new. Heated polished concrete introduces a luxurious open plan hub sophisticated in both form and function, that incorporates living with a gas fire, casual dining with floor-to-ceiling pool views, and a gourmet kitchen with every bell and whistle.
Entertaining will be a breeze with a kitchen that will showcase the home chef, with striking 80mm porcelain benchtops and splashback, a freestanding ILVE gas cooktop/double oven, Asko dishwasher, whisper-quiet soft close cabinetry and automatic appliance cupboards. The concealed butler’s pantry with two extra dish-drawers and spacious laundry with floor-to-ceiling linen storage allows you to stash away unsightly mess so you can continue to enjoy your company.
From here, a dedicated kid’s zone will enhance every family dynamic boasting a living retreat and powder room, both with direct pool access. Three bedrooms all with built-in robes and electric blinds include two with access to the main bathroom and one adjoining its very own ensuite.
Orientated to enjoy a stunning outlook over the Adelaide hills, the serene primary suite with plush carpets offers the ultimate escape from busy work and family life. With a spacious walk-in robe, skylit dressing nook and ensuite with couple’s shower, this adult only retreat spells pure bliss.
When the weather is too perfect to stay inside, the outdoor kitchen overlooks the glorious north-facing grounds brimming with blossoming crepe myrtle, ornamental pears and espaliered citrus which complement the tranquil saltwater swimming pool and spa that promises an extra dose of fun come summertime.
A residence as hi-tech as it is elegant, C-bus Home Automation controls the lighting and blinds with the touch of a finger.
