About this listing
Offers closing Tuesday 3rd October 2017 at 3:00pm, unless sold prior.

There is a timeless quality to Adelaide's inner northern suburbs, where substantial homes were designed for comfortable living across multiple generations.

Barker Road epitomises such classic character as one of Prospect's premier locations and this three bedroom 'gentleman's bungalow' is a shining example.

Located on a substantial corner allotment of approximately 750 square metres with an impressive width of more than 24 metres, this red-brick home has a wealth of traditional and modern features to make the discerning buyer feel immediately welcome.

Typical of bungalows of the era, the main rooms are generously proportioned, with panelled ceilings and multi-paned windows that bathe the tastefully decorated spaces with light.

There are two living rooms. Immediately off the entry is a main, formal space with a charming window seat and space heater. A second living room at the rear, beyond the kitchen/meals area, opens into the third, large bedroom and is next to the laundry and second bathroom. This could be a separate area for the kids, or perhaps a private retreat for guests.

The front two bedrooms, off the entry hall, are unusually large, with high ceilings emphasising their spaciousness and, off the master bedroom, a roomy, bright ensuite with modern tapware, a rainfall showerhead and, adding the luxury of choice, a hand-held shower.

Ambitious cooks will love the roomy, light-filled kitchen, featuring quality appliances such as a Falcon six-burner gas cooktop, three ovens and a Smeg dishwasher.

Another bonus is a cellar, with access from a corner of the third bedroom.

These bungalows were constructed to cope with Adelaide's hot summers, but these days, with the benefit of ducted evaporative cooling with outlets in every room, you'll stay comfortable inside even on the most sizzling day. You'll also be snug on those cold winter nights, courtesy of ducted gas heating.

Outdoors, there is an elevated entertaining platform, lawn areas, veggie beds and two sheds for storage and garden tools. A large paved area leads to a double carport.

While this is already an inviting place to call home, it also presents an ideal opportunity to extend, subject to council consent.
