This blog is my *virtual magazine* of stunning homes in Australia currently for sale. The homes are not necessarily perfect (like in a magazine shoot) so you need to forgive some obvious mistakes, and just enjoy seeing how others live, perhaps even take some inspiration from here n' there! (if you see your home here, take a bow because I search high and low before I finally decide to post a home for my blog!) THANKS FOR DROPPING BY...

"Villa Adelfia" another Norwood 1890 Classic

General Features
  • Property Type:  House
  • Bedrooms:    5
  • Bathrooms:  2
Outdoor Features
  • Carport Spaces:  4
Yep, I'd be happy with this beautiful home, 
the decor is a bit drab, but that's just down to personal taste I guess.

This ad also had a video by the real estate agent...

Not too shabby...

I think the kitchen lets this house down a bit... too small?

AND Here's the Master Plan!

AND here's what the Agent said about it!

"Villa Adelfia" C. 1890
A Grand Bluestone Queen Anne Villa of outstanding charm and beauty. Resort features include floodlit synthetic NS Tennis Court, large dry cellar, separate studio room and setting on private landscaped grounds of 1635 sq mts ( approx.). First offering in 20 years.

Please contact us to register for an inspection.

Homes of this calibre, size and amenity with future development potential (STCC) are coveted in Adelaide and are so rarely found in the vibrant, cosmopolitan Norwood precinct. The next custodians of this iconic property can provide their precious family with the benefits of living in an iconic, history laden estate, cocooned in a private and secure setting within an exciting near city location that offers the ultimate in convenience with the ability to walk to all shopping, educational, commuting, health, dining and entertainment services.

The poise and charm of this delightful home, sited on a corner block with side access is evident from your very first glimpse.

Preserving the character features of its Queen Anne styling with soaring ceilings, decorative cornices, stunning fireplaces, elaborate leadlight and wide arched hallway with Baltic timber floors, the home has been authentically extended and updated to offer a flexible floor plan perfectly suited to modern family living.

The entrance gallery with feature tile floor leads via an arched hallway past grand formal rooms such as the port room with a gorgeous bay window and fireplace, and a large formal dining room, no doubt the glorious scene of many a grand dinner party.

Standing proudly overlooking the light filled family room is the sleek modern white kitchen with an island breakfast bench with black granite tops, a Paul Bocuse double oven and a built in side-by-side Amana refrigerator with ice maker.

The adjoining casual meals room has sunny views of the floodlit all weather tennis court. This room flows through to a raised return verandah, from where your tennis friends can observe proceedings on the court while enjoying the setting sun over a glass of the wine of choice.

This sublime outdoor entertaining area also overlooks the soothing lawns and landscaped gardens with decorative European trees, ordered paths and garden beds, an Avocado tree and feature raised pond with fountain.

A large dry wine cellar with high clearance is accessed via an easy staircase, and can reliably house the collection of the most avid wine collector.

The glorious master bedroom features an impressive marble fireplace, plush carpets, romantic bay window with seat, a bright and spacious period styled ensuite bathroom, a walk-in robe plus a central make up/ perfume area fit for a movie star.

Three further double bedrooms with fireplaces offer flexibility for ample family accommodation or study activity.

An elevated coach house above the double carport provides the ideal retreat for teenagers or a bright lofty space to inspire an artist.

Standout features of this home:

- Charming bluestone return verandah villa on 1651 sq mtr allotment
- Floodlit NS synthetic tennis court
- Separate elevated coach house/ bedroom
- Mature landscaped grounds overseen by elevated verandahs for sophisticated outdoor entertaining
- Sleek modern kitchen with Paul Bocuse freestanding oven and granite tops
- Open fireplaces, ducted gas underfloor heating, and ducted cooling for year round comfort
- Large, dry connoisseur's wine cellar
- Corner block with dual street access, and development potential (STCC)
- Two large double carports/ storage area with auto electric gate access
- Bore with pump and filter and Ducted vacuum system
- Brilliant location just walking distance from cosmopolitan Norwood Parade cafe precinct, supermarket, restaurants, library and medical facilities.

Truly a generational opportunity to own one of Adelaide's most desirable properties, Peter and Eloise McMillan look forward to helping you with your enquiries
