When will you ever find a little piece of paradise in the middle of the city again? This Japanese inspired beauty has been the owner’s considered creation, brought to life by a team of artistic and talented people.
The vision began at construction in 2000, with a striking architectural transformation completed only 5 years ago, thoughtfully designed to inspire peaceful, serene and positive energy throughout the home. Architect John Maitland has excelled in creating a modern glass fronted masterpiece, which brings the buzz of the tree lined city street into the home.
When you first approach the home, the facade takes your breath away. Looking up you glimpse a reflection of a secret garden created by master craftsman Fumio Ueda, privately tucked away behind the timber front fence.
Once inside you can view this beautiful garden of moss, water, foliage, stone, timber and other natural elements through the giant picture window. The front room would make a lovely sitting room or home office.
Follow the floating timber floors through to the light and airy North facing open plan living, dining and kitchen, which overlooks another beautiful Japanese garden and courtyard. Aesthetically appealing bamboo gate and custom fence allow direct access to the rear garage. Modern timber and white kitchen with Corian and stainless steel benches, overhead cabinetry, gas cooking and dishwasher.
Downstairs bathroom and laundry, with organised under-stair storage.
Quality wool carpeted stairs lead to the upper level; a flexible space, currently configured as two master bedrooms, both with an abundance of built in robes.
The front bedroom has an extended front retreat with towering insulated glass windows, hovering above the downstairs garden and giving the sense of being in the treetops with the resident native birds. An example of true Japanese home philosophy, displaying the relationship between natural materials and the environment.
Third room is currently used as a home office with built in desk and storage. Main bathroom with deep Japanese soaking tub or plunge bath, open shower and vanity.
Overall the property has the feeling of style with a simple minimalist vibe, located steps from some delectable restaurants, and within easy walking distance to many amenities the Adelaide CBD provides.
Torrens titled and located on the corner with prized dual access from the side and front of the home via intercom, and the second car park at the rear is very useful. Extras include ducted reverse cycle air conditioning, solar electricity, security system and so much more.
Inspection is a must, as the ambience and energy of the home cannot be easily encapsulated in words.
