Description

High society style in one of the city's most affluent inner pockets.
Extravagant, classically Georgian, and a fitting standout to affluent Fitzroy, is a family manor with a pool on a private 1073sqm approx. allotment no stranger to entertaining…

Built in the 1950s for Henry Rymill, every brick allegedly shipped from England, the 5-bedroom, 3-bathroom home bound by automatic iron gates, a formal re-landscaped garden, freshly whitewashed pillars, panes, and shutters, with dual carports – one for you, one for guests – holds a high society past with modern influences.

And it last changed hands in C.1960.

Imagine martinis on the marble and terrazzo terrace by the pool and palms you can see as you fly over Adelaide; and inside, elaborate chandeliers, wallpaper, drapes, and sconces, lofty ceilings, and an internal lift deeming the refined home open to everyone.

Its side entry hall greets a tiled reception, elegant living room with open fireplace, and a formal dining room fit for a dozen beneath a decadent bronze ceiling.

In contrast, the stone-swathed custom kitchen hosts a stainless Smeg oven and cooktop, Miele dishwasher, and an island encroaching a sunny meals and casual living zone.

Next – a home office, a vintage bathroom with shower and WC, large laundry, and the warmest glazed sunroom with pool views.

Upstairs meets all 5 individually dressed bedrooms, 2 fully tiled and renovated bathrooms, and a separate WC; the palatial master enjoying his and hers walk-in robes, an ambient fireplace, and French doors to the street-facing balcony.

The 2nd bedroom enjoys a rear balcony and inbuilt robe, the king-sized 3rd has sliding mirrored robes, a flexible 5th seizes back garden views and the northern sun.

And who wouldn't toast to this iconic home, its stone terrace, or its location.

Walking reach to Blackfriars Priory School and the Prospect precinct, the city ring route to trendy Bowden, the Adelaide Aquatic Centre, North Adelaide cafes and Golf Course, with Adelaide Oval in a 20-minute stroll.

An elite home like this deserves an encore…
