c.1905 twin gabled villa with a very special transformation and one surprise after another

Expressions of Interest Close Tue, 2nd Nov – 1pm

It starts with a picture-perfect twin gabled façade facing leafy Hughes Street. It ends with a solar heated pool and exclusive rear access to the Linear Park pathway. But it’s what’s in-between that makes this architecturally reforged family home something truly special on a boundless parcel that breaks the magic 1,000sqm barrier.

Some call it a gallery, others a catwalk. Either way, the clearly defined transition between the impeccably presented c.1905 villa and the 2015-completed extension is the first of many architectural masterstrokes in this solar-powered entertainer headlined by its flexible five bedroom floorplan, state-of the-art security and luxurious master quarters.

The moment the afternoon sun settles in the central courtyard and floods through the north-facing windows of the open-plan addition is the moment it all comes together, shedding light on the conversation-starting kitchen and a family room that flows with effortless ease to an alfresco pavilion with its own kitchen and a pool view.

Call your friends, start the Smeg BBQ, set the pool to your desired temperature, send some Nina Simone through the integrated Bose speakers, and grab your finest drops from your underground cellar. It’s time to celebrate one very special home on the leafy brink of the city and cosmopolitan Unley and King William Roads.
