Above and beyond – showstopping renovation and breathtaking views …

Auction Location: On Site

Award winning boutique builders Sweedy Homes have gone above and beyond in transforming this delightful c.1960s Cape Cod style home into a contemporary family masterpiece. With spectacular panoramic views across Adelaide, glorious terraced grounds and a pool, there’s nothing left to do but enjoy all the best this prestigious eastern lifestyle location has to offer.

With charming street appeal, newly landscaped plantings complement the smart symmetrical façade that hints at what lies within.

The latest in interior design starts at the front door, with engineered oak boards stretching through an interconnected and versatile floorplan.

A warm and inviting centred entrance forms a reception area for guests to mingle and spill into entertaining zones.

To one side a highly flexible space has been cleverly designed to include a bar area with sink. This allows a variety of uses including a place for guests to be welcomed with a wine, a lounge area, a study, or as an extension of the adjacent master suite.

The sophisticated primary suite has the wow-factor, with a soaring 4.9m plus cathedral ceiling providing an incredible sense of space. Through a walk-in dressing room is an up to the minute ensuite with designer fittings and floor to ceiling tiles.

The other side of the entrance transitions past curved cabinetry to the open plan living hub and meals area with chic banquette seating, that seamlessly connects through to the kitchen and outdoor living.

The kitchen is a masterclass of contemporary design. Dark walnut timber cabinetry with engineered stone countertops hosts a range of integrated Smeg appliances, and not one but two a walk-in pantrys. The second incorporates a laundry, a hidden powder room and outdoor access.

The kitchen is designed to take maximum advantage of show stopping views. A sensational gas lift window with breathtaking city views opens right up to bring the outside in and create a servery connection to outdoor living.

The alfresco dining and living platform sets the stage. With a glass balcony, this decked expanse virtually hovers above Adelaide and is the ultimate perch from which to enjoy city views to the sea and sunsets with friends.

A second deck surrounds the large tiled pool – the perfect place to lounge in the sun and watch the kids play. In the distance, a firepit area and landscaped plantings that include a perfectly positioned and majestic Golden Elm tree.

Upstairs, family accommodation boats three bedrooms all with built-in robes, and a large main bathroom with soaking tub that mirrors the opulent design of the ensuite.

Two bedrooms are big enough to incorporate study nooks, and one opens through to a huge balcony deck with lofty north- facing tree top views, providing another exceptional space for entertaining.

Positioned in the tranquil eastern foothills, this property has burst into the 21st century with wow- factor features and breathtaking panoramas to create an outstanding family home.
