Commissioned to create a character-laden, traditional masterpiece with quality finishes & detail, reminiscent of chic European city style, was the brief given to Adelaide’s most iconic builder, David Cheney. A specialist builder, who was privileged to let his designs come to life with clients prepared for no-expense spared quality.
This striking, sandstone-fronted, solid brick residence was custom-built in 2010 by the current owners, displaying immense street appeal with eye-catching period architecture.
The façade is complemented by a heritage, cast iron fence with video intercom, an electronically controlled gate to an automatic opening leading to a triple-length carport & stunning, formal English-style gardens.
Step up to a wide, basalt-tiled verandah & gorgeous clear lead lights surrounding the front door. On entry, you are welcomed by the rich, solid oak ‘herringbone’ floors lining the multi-arched hallway, featuring an impressive, central guest foyer with detailed surrounds to the oversized skylight, chandelier light fitting & decorative plaster work.
The home provides a most practical floorplan, allowing multi-use spaces, if required.
There are 4 extra-large bedrooms, all offering stylish plantation shutters. The indulgent master offers a pleasant garden view & perfect northern orientation. It provides a 2-person walk-in robe & dressing room and sparkling Italian marble ensuite, complete with heated flooring.
Bedrooms 2 & 3 are fitted with quality, matt 2-pac robes, whilst bedroom 4 also offers northern orientation and a garden view.
The main ‘family’ bathroom offers the same stylish fit-out as that in the ensuite, including a deep, relaxing freestanding bath, heated flooring & heated towel rail. A separate guest powder room is central to the home.
There is the ideal 2-person office, complete with built-in work stations.
A set of tall, classic french doors off the hall open to an optional 2nd living retreat or home theatre, complete with built-in ‘jamo’ ceiling speakers for surround sound.
The family size laundry offers extensive, wall-to-wall storage cupboards, shirt drying rod, provision to house side-by-side front loader & dryer and a ‘crimsafe’ door opening to the service area in the carport area.
Enjoy entertaining family & friends in the large, open plan dining and family areas, incorporating the chef’s kitchen.
Cook up a storm in the well-designed gourmet kitchen. It is fitted with matt 2-pac cabinetry (consistent material to all other cabinetry), polished Caesarstone benchtops, including island bench & breakfast bar, glass splashbacks, appliance & pantry cupboards and Miele package including 900 mm wide gas cooktop with wok burners, under bench oven, integrated dishwasher & rangehood.
There is direct access into the kitchen from the 4-metre wide enclosed carport.
Large picture windows from the open plan rear, invite views over the basalt-tiled terrace, open paved terrace, bowling-green style lawn & stunning private gardens. The cocooned setting of the rear gardens is an absolute treat to those who desire serenity. There is ample room to house a pool if this is on your wish list.
Extras include: Daikin reverse-cycle air-conditioning (zoned), security system, colour monitor to intercom (which can also be programmed to view on your phone), NBN, led downlights, approx. 13 ft ceilings, wooden sash windows, automated watering system (including subsurface irrigation to the footpath) & krix outdoor speakers to rear terrace.
Enjoy a short walk over for a coffee at burnside village, a myriad of popular restaurants nearby, bus to city, ‘The Parade’ & close proximity to some of Adelaide’s top private & public schools.
