Renovated Period Cottage in
Secluded Park Setting
Prestigiously nestled in one of North Adelaide's most highly sought after streets fronting onto green parklands, this historic John Hogg built home has recently undergone elegant renovations to include modern conveniences whilst maintaining the home's charming character and period detail.
Passing a fragrant rose garden one enters the property via a cast-iron gate complemented by classic white picket fencing and into the entirely renovated semi-detached cottage which comprises 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, informal meals/living area, separate lounge area, laundry room and 2-car garage off a private laneway.
Beyond the tessellated-tiled verandah, the spacious welcoming hall separates the master bedroom from the remaining living zones creating privacy to relax and unwind. Towering 3.6m high period ceilings create an airy sense of space with intricate architraves, ornate cornices and polished original Baltic pine floorboards all enhancing the property's desirable heritage features. Decorative period lighting and chandeliers have also been lovingly retained throughout the home.
Down the long main hallway one finds the brand-new kitchen with Miele appliances, ample cabinetry/pantry space and an informal meals area. Both bathrooms are located on either ends of the home with the main new bathroom adjacent to an extensive WIR. A generously-sized family room located to the rear of the home offers capacious in-built storage with views to the back garden surrounded by mature landscaping. The services of a gardener are included in the lease to maintain the lush green surrounds.
There is abundant off-street parking for visitors directly in front of the home as well as a convenient rear laneway via Arthur Street that takes one to the undercover parking with space for two cars.
The residence is perfectly positioned just behind the best of trendy Melbourne Street, North Adelaide Shopping Village, within a short drive to the CBD, is zoned for both North Adelaide Primary and Walkerville Primary schools, as well as the soon to be built Adelaide Botanic High School, and is in close proximity to Wilderness School and St Peter's College not to mention within a short stroll to tennis courts, BBQs and picnic areas in the adjacent parklands.
Further features include ducted heating and cooling throughout, a new smart water meter, instant gas hot water and security system.
