A high-end fusion of character and modern luxe …

A rare and exciting opportunity awaits in arguably one of Adelaide’s most sought-after locations. What appears at first glance to be another beautiful character home is in fact so much more than that, enriched in a long history, no expense has been spared transforming this gorgeous home into a modern family masterpiece.

This original bluestone beauty built c. 1890 has undergone a complete renovation of the highest standard to create a modern fusion of character and high-end contemporary convenience. A smart home in every way imaginable with automation throughout combined with a thoughtfully designed floorplan ensures the best in functionality and endless possibilities.

Two large bedrooms can be found at the front of the original home, including the master suite complete with walk in robes through to the luxurious ensuite with double vanity, floor to ceiling marble look tiles and separate wc. These rooms enjoy a versatile private lounge or home office, complete with a truly impressive glass paned in-ground cellar with motorised mechanical door.

A short accent upstairs reveals generous accommodation by way of a further two double bedrooms each with floor to ceiling build in robes. There is also a large living room, perfect for the younger members of the family to enjoy. This level is serviced by a cleverly configured family sized bathroom with freestanding bath and separate wc.

At the heart of the home lies the beautiful open plan living area bathed in natural light from the rear garden. A fully equipped gourmet kitchen features a 3m long island bench, high-end appliances including a 900mm wide oven and gas cooktop and a substantial butler’s pantry cleverly positioned behind. Large stacker windows and doors seamlessly extend the indoors to an alfresco dining pavilion with outdoor kitchen including WeberQ, heat strip, speakers and bar fridge. Entertain effortlessly while the kids play on the lush lawn bordered by pear trees.

A myriad of options, flexibility and opportunities take little imagination once having entered the substantial, self-contained studio apartment at the rear of the property. Currently comprised as a home office with fully equipped kitchen, bathroom, large open plan living area, two offices/bedrooms and private rear access via Mattingley Lane. It is easy to see how minor adjustments could transform this space into a generous teenager’s retreat or accommodation for visiting family and friends. Alternatively, take your business to the next level and operate seamlessly with the current set up of two office spaces with secure customer access from the rear lane.

It is easy to see why Norwood is held in great esteem as one of the Eastern suburbs most premiere and vibrant locations. A mere 5-minute walk to The Parade, offering an abundance of local cafes, restaurants and boutiques as well as surrounded by top-tier private schools and zoned to Norwood Primary and Norwood International High Schools. A short drive, walk or ride through the parklands will see you in the city for work or Adelaide’s East End to enjoy everything Australia’s most livable city has to offer.

The current owners have exquisitely transformed what once was a quaint cottage on one of Norwood’s quietest streets to a beautiful family home of high quality finishes and detail.
