Charming character villa with more than meets the eye …

Best offers by – 8th March at 2pm

Expect the unexpected. This charming 1900’s single-fronted villa is sure to impress and surprise. The impression of quaint on the outside belies the amazing package on offer behind the white picket fence.

Comprising of a three-bedroom home with traditional features, modern convenience and a fascinating history to the front of the property and a separate self-contained, two-storey studio apartment to the rear, this makes for a situation with endless opportunities. Of possible interest to extended families, those running a small business from home or a base for personal trainers or the fitness orientated. There is plenty of space for everyone to live and work peacefully and independently including students, the adult children at home or even the rellies from overseas.

Entering the villa, original features have been retained. Attractive original leadlight surrounds the front door to a cosy entry. Impressively, the high ceilings boast amazing original pressed metal consistently throughout the original part of the home. The main bedroom offers wall-to-wall built-ins, French doors to the front verandah and lovely nook behind the villa windows. The exceptionally large lounge is well placed and flows through to a large meals area with a neat kitchen. Two modern bathrooms and sunny light-filled porch complete the rear of the home.

Moving to the outdoors, the relaxing pool area and outdoor entertaining connect the original home with the new studio apartment.

The studio apartment positioned at the rear of the property, is surprisingly spacious. Downstairs the kitchen and living area looks out to the pool and a vine covered area with brick pizza oven and outdoor kitchen extending from indoors. The contemporary bathroom is well placed for guests at the pool as well as residents in the studio. The kitchen has huge appeal, dark cabinetry, stone bench tops, great storage and new appliances. Three garaging spaces with industrial feel offer great flexibility being ready for a gym, warehouse-style home office, workshop or hobbies.

Upstairs, the large open space could offer sleeping accommodation, games and recreation space or further office or storage space. Recent owners have used the studio as a home office and at times part of the property has been rented out. For those for whom an extension an further renovations may be part of the plan, be the envy of others in having a space to call home on site and avoid the cost of renting.

Located in this popular city-fringe location, there is plenty of appeal to families, extended families, or working-from-home professionals. Annesley College is within walking distance while Adelaide and Adelaide Botanic are the zoned High Schools. Head to the city or beach via the nearby tram, walk through the Parklands or ride the bike paths. The local Drakes supermarket is within walking distance with chemist, OTR and Goodwood Hotel. Shop for the best on Sundays at the Farmer’s market. Be spoilt for choice with everything on offer on the Goodwood Road strip and enjoy the total Goodwood vibe.
