A treasure trove of surprises
Michael and Christine Holowiecki of Keeping It Realty are proud to present this unassuming yet captivating 3 bedroom Northfield home that is bursting with impressive features throughout. With everything you need to keep the entire family happy, this property is also an investors dream, though you may well fall in love and decide to keep the joy all for yourself.
The front of the home features a large lawn and shrubbery, and a sweeping paved driveway leads to the front of the home, guiding you to a double lock up garage and a welcoming porch at the entrance to the main living area. Once entering the living area the first feature you’ll notice is the attractive floating wooden flooring that immediately makes you feel comforted. It’s just one of the many indications that this enticing home was designed with creativity and purpose in mind.
The living room (and combined dining area) flows into an L shape and has been freshly painted in neutral modern tones. A cleverly concealed heater keeps the space heated in winter and ducted evaporative cooling keeps the atmosphere cool during the hotter months. Attractive down lights in the dining area add a touch of warmth and romance.
Off the dining room is access into the upgraded galley style kitchen that stylishly follows a contemporary charcoal and silver colour scheme. With ample bench space, the drawers and cabinets are within easy reach and seamlessly blend in to ensure an uninterrupted work area. Cooking creativity is guaranteed with all the necessary appliances, while the sparkling white tile splash backs add the finishing touches.
Also accessible from the dining room is a delightful sunroom. Perfect as a home office or additional living space, this bright and cheerful room has plenty of windows, handsome timber blinds and offers numerous options for use, with the added bonus of direct access to the rear entertaining area.
As you follow the wooden flooring down the hall from the living area, you’ll find the 3 bedrooms. The main bedroom is noticeably crisp and clean in appearance, with a subtle colour scheme, large windows (with stylish blinds) for fresh air and a ceiling fan for comfort. The second bedroom boasts a large open plan built in robe with enough room to inspire you to buy those new shoes you’ve been dreaming of, or revamp your summer wardrobe and display your clothes with pride. The third bedroom also has a ceiling fan, outdoor views and open built in robe.
The home has a separate toilet and a modern bathroom, equipped with a crisp white vanity unit that offers additional storage space to ensure the bathroom remains serene and uncluttered. A large corner shower and bathtub also feature and offer the chance to soak away your worries after a hard day’s work.
The property boasts a dedicated laundry room off the kitchen with plenty of cabinets and storage options. Also ideal as a butler’s pantry, the kitchen appliances could effortlessly be contained within this useful area. The laundry leads you out to the large wraparound undercover entertaining BBQ area which is also accessible from the sunroom. Designed in an L shape, it nestles against the house and is sure to be a favourite relaxation point for all the family.
Perhaps the biggest draw card of this alluring property is the impressive studio adjoining the outdoor entertaining area. The studio is detached from the house and is self-contained with a kitchenette, cold water sink, cabinetry and fridge provisions making it perfect to transform into a “man cave” with a bar. Another ideal use would be as a teenager’s retreat. Functioning as a 1 bed-room studio the room is well insulated, with reverse cycle heating and cooling split system as well as 2 ceiling fans and a smoke alarm. It’s safe to say that any teenager desperate to gain their own independence would be delighted to make this studio their own. Of course other possible uses for this studio are infinite and include music/art studio, home theatre room, library/homework room or home office.
The countless features of this property don’t end here. You’ll be delighted to discover a separate spa room, hidden away at the rear of the property with its interior reminiscent of a log cabin in the woods. The space offers the ideal position for a stand-alone spa and there is also a luxurious rain style shower. A large window with natural scenery brings the outdoors in.
For those who love tinkering in the garage, you’ll find a large workshop to the rear of the home and accessible from the carport. It’s capable of housing an additional car or functioning as a lock up workshop. The property also contains 2 additional sheds within the yard so storage will never be an issue.
The double side by side lock up carport is situated in front of the workshop. The front roller doors open from the ample drive way that is large enough to house 3 cars, a boat, trailer or caravan.
Aside from the outstanding features of the property itself, Northfield is a lovely area to call your home. Northfield Primary School is within close proximity and Adelaide CBD is just 10.5km in distance. Plenty of public transport routes are only a short stroll away in order for you to access local university campuses, dining options or shopping centres.
