A once in a lifetime opportunity to secure an impressive residence situated directly opposite the iconic grounds of Adelaide Oval on one of South Australia’s most exclusive terraces. Its unique and tightly held position surrounded by some of Adelaide’s most prestigious and historically significant properties, within close proximity to the city, parklands and Torrens precinct makes this a truly rare and exceptional offering.
With a commanding corner position and striking street presence, this gracious home of elegant proportions is being offered to the market for the first time in nearly forty years. As a superb example of the Georgian Revival style, its classical architectural features include a columned portico, shuttered windows, black and white tessellated tiles and exquisite fanlights.
Set over two levels, the house enjoys glorious views across Pennington Gardens towards the northern end of Adelaide Oval and the city beyond.
The ground floor provides expansive and flexible living options imbued with light.
From the entrance foyer, a king-sized bedroom with oval views includes an ensuite bathroom – perfect as a primary or guest bedroom. This flexible space could be adapted for use as a second living space or large home office.
A grand living room and adjacent dining are bathed in northerly sunshine that streams in through a bank of full-length feature windows overlooking the saltwater pool and private paved alfresco dining terrace with steel framed pergola.
The all-white kitchen incorporates a breakfast bar and a range of European appliances, whilst the laundry with WC can be conveniently accessed from the pool area.
Upstairs is currently configured as three bedrooms and two bathrooms, with a large suite incorporating a separate study/dressing room and ensuite. This flexible floorplan provides versatile family accommodation options with up to four bedrooms if required.
An elegant arched door opens to a balcony providing a dress circle seat on which to perch and enjoy the magnificent surrounds.
Finally, a double garage accessed from Lakeman Street offers valuable off-street parking to the rear of the property.
There is no doubt that the location of this property is one of the most unique and exceptional in Adelaide. First class football, cricket and tennis are literally on the doorstep, whilst the CBD, North Adelaide Golf Course, Torrens River precinct, and Festival Centre cultural and arts hub are a leisurely stroll away.
