After almost half a century of being cherished by the same family, this character-filled, double-brick bungalow is ready to welcome and reward new owners.
Built around 1920 in one of Adelaide's oldest and most charming inner-northern suburbs, the home presents a valuable, affordable opportunity to get a foothold in the Prospect market - or perhaps to downsize.
For a young family, this is a prime location, with Prescott College just 400 metres away and Blackfriars Priory School within a kilometre. The shops and hub of Prospect Road are 1.6 kilometres from your door.
On a block of approximately 500 square metres, the property has tremendous potential for renovation. Subject to council consent you could extend upwards or outwards, using the solid structure as the foundation to fulfil your dreams.
In the meantime, step inside and start enjoying this new phase of your life.
First, bask in the glow of the light-filled hallway, where the pure-wool carpet complements the neutral-toned walls. The carpet extends throughout the front of the house, into the two bedrooms and the lounge room that boasts grand proportions at nearly seven metres long and four metres wide - plenty of room here for entertaining or just relaxing in split-system air-conditioned comfort.
The front bedroom has substantial built-in wardrobe space incorporating a full-length mirror. The other room to the right of the hallway has refrigerated air-conditioning and gas heating and is currently used as a separate living area but could easily become the second bedroom, or even be transformed into the main bedroom.
Typical of bungalows and villas of the early 20th century, the three front rooms have high ceilings that, along with the neutral tones, enhance the atmosphere of light and spaciousness. The original doors and architraves add to the period feel.
At the rear of the house the hallway leads to the separate laundry, bathroom and a compact kitchen/meals area with gas cooker and plenty of cupboard space.
Beyond the back door, a full-width verandah with attached carport opens onto an expansive yard featuring a mini-orchard of mandarin, navel orange, lime, fig, plum and grapefruit trees. It's a perfect space to unleash your green thumb and your gardening imagination.
