There's an undeniable prestige to Dutton's wide and leafy Terrace in walking reach of Wilderness Girl's School and North Adelaide's Park Land fringe, and with it, a villa of enduring 1910 charm holding an exciting vision...
One that goes beyond the home's solid sandstone character, elaborate villa details, and up to 5-bedroom versatility. The next ace is its north-facing rear with a pool and rear studio on landscaped cottage grounds.
Let the project begin.
As for the home, its grandeur is palpable. Whether it sees a new coat of paint or a full-scale remodel, its owners of 40 years know how magical the sunlight is from the architecturally designed rear family room, and how glorious its gardens are to wake to.
An awakening from an elegant master with a heritage style ensuite, and one of many decorative fireplaces and hand-painted ceiling roses.
And that Stephen Penglase double brick addition is as timeless today as it was in the 1980s. High ceilings, hardwood floors, wide northerly eaves catching the winter sun; exactly where potential sits for indoor/outdoor flow to the pool with a studio sideline…
Relax under umbrella shade poolside as mature shrubs bring the privacy. And the studio/retreat with sliding robes? It speaks entertainer's pavilion (STCC.)
Timeless style gravitates to the JAG granite-topped kitchen too. A functional zone with Miele gas and electric cooktops, a wall oven, and semi-integrated dishwasher.
To the home's array of formal living, student quarters, or office potential; two offer separate entry, the formal dining room with a sunroom annexe makes sense as a playroom, library, or bedroom.
And just as the villas and manors around you in this esteemed suburb have done, carry the villa's beauty forward…
On the brink of Robe and Fitzroy Terraces, Walkerville's cafés, shopping, and eateries, your gift is villa versatility.
