Impressively set on sprawling grounds …

This landmark property built in 1885 is ready for the next custodian, to regenerate the magnificent residence. It remains an icon which will be appreciated by the new owner whilst adding their own flair.

Impressively set on sprawling grounds of 2542sqm (approx.) with full sized tennis court, impressive lawned area and room for garaging.

Built by William Taylor, a Scotsman, who was a senior partner of James Marshall and Co., the drapery store in Adelaide which eventually became part of the Myers group. He ordered much of the decorative material in the house from Britain and proceeded to live in this fine mansion until 1900.

Albyn House is an impressive two storey structure of stone and brick quoins with a verandah running around the upper balcony adorned with graceful cast iron columns and lacework brought from Glasgow and decorated terracotta tiles are set in the walls.

The grandeur of the proportions and lavish finishes are immediately evident in the gracious reception entrance featuring timber floorboards, ornate ceilings and wide staircase that is a show stopping feature at the centre of the home.

Some of the features you’ll love include:

  • Five or six bedrooms, master with luxury marble bathroom with spa and dressing room
