About this listing
Compact yet spacious and so conveniently located, this late-1990s reproduction settler's cottage nestles among other quality homes in one of Adelaide's most modern neighbourhoods.

Sitting behind a picket fence and substantial retaining wall, and with an impressive tree and garden providing a green screen, the property conveys a welcome sense of seclusion. Yet it is a mere few minutes' walk from a supermarket and the Golden Grove Village and Shopping Centre, with public transport only another 10 or so minutes away. And within an adult's brief stroll or a child's short sprint is the wide expanse of a public park and playground.

The contrast of red brick with cream masonry and timber highlights and L-shaped bullnose verandah with period fretwork lend the home great character - and this feel-good ambience extends indoors, where light floods the living areas and bedrooms and is magnified by the freshly painted antique white walls and neutral-coloured tiles.

There are three carpeted bedrooms - two at the front and one at the back - although the single third bedroom, with windows opening to both sides of the verandah, could also serve as an office or study.

The master bedroom is spacious and leads into an alcove with floor-to-ceiling wardrobes on either side and, beyond, through a sliding door, to the Jack and Jill bathroom with full-size tub. Another doorway provides access to the bathroom and separate toilet from the rest of the house.

Down a short hallway are the laundry, with outside access and plenty of space for a washer and dryer, and the rear-facing second bedroom, which provides views to the rear patio and courtyard garden, has a built-in robe and can easily accommodate a double or queen bed.

The practical floor plan incorporates an expansive, open-plan kitchen/living/dining area which invites members of the household to mingle and chat over a coffee or pre-dinner drink and nibbles while the cook - or cooks - rustle up a meal on the gas cooktop and electric oven, whilst picking ingredients from the ample storage. A cute touch is an octagonal porthole window to the verandah and front door, so you can see the dinner guests arrive.

The living area looks out through a corner of big windows to the covered patio and courtyard garden and entertaining area, tailor-made for winding down and slapping a steak or burger on the barbie.

There's parking for two cars, one behind a carport with roller door and the other in the driveway, from where the paving extends around the front of the home. It all adds up to a relaxed, easy-care lifestyle in a highly desirable property.
