Victorian grandeur, O'Connell Street proximity and period prominence

24 Childers Street, North Adelaide, SA 5006

3 bed1 bath1 car
Own the last remaining relic - that being one quarter of the original Town Acre 943 still standing - a significant slice of North Adelaide's C.1880 history glowing in its two-storey sandstone stature and revelling in its leafy Childers Street pocket footsteps from O'Connell Street.

It'll seduce you from its solid stone exterior, but inside is where lofty ornate ceilings, stained glass, Baltic pine boards and bay window formal living room conjures thoughts of high tea, top hats and tails.

Today, the grandeur of its open fireplaces and French doors are offset with modern influences and fresh decor applauding its heyday - commercial style stainless kitchen, formal and casual living, sunroom extension and outdoor alfresco.

Cottage gardens appear out of every French door exit (of which there are many) as bi-folding doors separate events from the casual dining room to soirees spilling out to the slate-floored sunroom catching every ray of northern light through its arched windows.

Outside, do alfresco in the glass pagoda-style pavilion surrounded by lawn, lavender, creeping vines and a few fine friends.

Turn in to a ground floor master with fireplace, convenient entry into the slate-tiled two-way bathroom with deep spa also assigned laundry duty, European style.

And it's the only renovation project this home requires which will be well worth your while...

Upstairs, two more grand bedrooms, two more ambient fireplaces; a central hallway leads to the balcony with period balustrading and views to the procession of wandering locals heading for their favoured eatery on O'Connell.

And serve up a feast it does; from Euro-Asian fare to fine brews; a world of cuisine and not a car key required in this locale.

Claiming over a dozen watering holes in your walkable postcode, the iconic Adelaide Oval, Aquatic Centre, leafy Wellington Square, Next Generation Gym and Memorial Drive tennis - in this city-fringe, this prized real estate really is world-class...
