Sold at AuctionProperty ID 1565651An Exquisite Restored And Extended Return Veranda Villa! Live The Dream In This Go-Ahead, City-Fringe Locale
In a city famed for its character heritage, there are few real surprises, yet here in this quiet, tree-lined pocket, is a brilliant family abode, wrapped inside a labour of love, brimming with gorgeous period features and those seamless modern additions that we all look for in a home today.
And just to make it completely perfect, this charmingly elevated, return-veranda villa sits on a very handsome 1133m² inner-metro parcel, with Welland Plaza Shopping Centre at one end of the street and beautiful Linear Park at the other, moments to the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, the tram and Queen Street's hipster caf strip.
Beyond the lace-edged veranda and jaunty leadlight entry, the lovely wide hallway glows with freshly painted and polished perfection, leading the eye to the loftiness of perfectly preserved ceilings and a dazzling Art Deco leadlight door on the far side of the central archway.
But it's in the palatial formal lounge and dining room that you get to enjoy this home in all its character glory, as magnificent ceiling roses jostle for attention with superb marble fireplaces, spectacular jewelled leadlight and a set of those incredible Art Deco doors dividing the two. One can only imagine the dinner parties to be had here!
Three queen-sized bedrooms, (each with a unique fireplace), and a heritage bathroom with a corner spa bath also inhabit these original spaces that sit privately away from the glass-wrapped, open-plan family zones your gateway to a brand-new laundry, second bathroom and a fourth bedroom, (or study if you prefer).
Freshly laid, smoked oak flooring and a dreamy kitchen upgrade featuring upgraded stainless steel appliances and a slather of gorgeous Caesarstone create the ultimate family hub, complete with slow combustion heater and instant access to alfresco entertaining under the long veranda at the rear.
And with such a deep backyard, it's hard not to be swayed by the possibility of a court or pool. But for now, let the children play and contemplate all the happy times ahead.
