Just as St. Peters promises wide avenues of tree-lined character, steps away, Joslin joins in. And what makes this four-bedroom, C1900 villa so special, is its ripe for restoration stature on some 875sqm approx., a hand-held stroll to tennis courts, playgrounds, and East Adelaide School…
Take the cracks and crumble, the tired tessellated tiled verandahs, fretwork, turn-of-the-century charm and its Residential Historic Conservation zoning - just as its last family has done for 34 years – and give it a deserving fresh start.
Such a renewal will be laborious, but so worth it.
With high ceilings, Baltic pine floors and a pliable floorplan, the home opens from one of two entry points; a generous sitting room (or king-sized bedroom) from the street-facing verandah, or a driveway arrival through the leadlight-adorned entry hall.
Here, the lounge room ushers everyone around the first open fireplace, the second is a treat for the formal dining room en route to a basic kitchen with upgraded stainless oven.
And why not start here – keeping intact the renovated and fully-tiled bathroom – for the home's north-facing, back-end rewrite?
Some 18.29m of frontage promises ample extension girth for those value-adding renovations this home can't wait to explore - STCC.
With an established rear lawn, stone retaining walls and a sample of fruit trees, there's enough freedom to encroach with a new addition and/or alfresco, retaining its lengthy driveway access to a detached double garage (with roller door) at the back.
One job off the list.
As expected in the sought-after east, you'll be spoilt for schools and amenity; from Walkerville Terrace, The Avenues and The Parade Norwood for retail, cafes and shopping, premier schools such as St. Peters and Prince Alfred Colleges, and a leisurely walk around the leafy block to Linear Park.
But first, roll up your sleeves for lifestyle on Third…
