Amazing development opportunity!

Michael and Christine Holowiecki of Keeping It Realty are proud to present this charming cottage located within minutes of Adelaide’s beach-front lifestyle and sited on a whopping 1000 square metre, triple fronted allotment! This sensational opportunity offers a myriad of development possibilities and multiple subdivision configurations!

With its classic layout, generous room sizing, and vast land space; this versatile property has the potential for renovation and extension or complete redevelopment. Depending on the focus of the buyer, here stands a template upon which a classically beautiful home can be re-awoken; or a perfectly located blank canvas awaiting modern residential reinvention.

A bullnose verandah adorns the front of the home; providing immediate street appeal and a dateless period façade which has the practical application of shielding the interior from the direct heat of the Australian sun. The classic heritage of this home is further established as as you enter the wide stately hallway. The 11 foot ceilings give an immediate sense of space and grandeur which is reinforced by the substantial sizing of all of the living areas and bedrooms.

Whilst the use of rooms has been differentiated over the years, there is immediate potential for this home to offer four ample bedrooms; a number of which contain converted storage and feature spaces in place of pre-existent fireplaces. These are unique aspects which create visual interest and interior styling opportunities. Currently, the main bedroom features built-in robes and a ceiling fan.

The original kitchen is set within an ample light-filled area. Any number of beautiful, updated kitchens would be impressive in this space. Similarly the bathroom, which is separate to the toilet, has the potential to be updated and re-formatted via redesign. The lean-to laundry and additional storage space within this area is also considerable, highly functional and open to reinvention.

The home is completed by a huge rear yard that already holds several sheds, a large grassed area and a rainwater tank. There is room for the addition of a double garage and an extensive vegetable garden; and the dedicated landscaper could create something truly impressive. This space would accommodate a large decked entertainment area easily.

Within minutes of Semaphore beach and the cafés, restaurants and community ambience of Semaphore Road, close to transport routes and approximately 15 minutes from the West Lakes shopping precinct; this address is enviable as either a stunningly classic and well-apportioned residence or a completely redeveloped investment project that is sure to deliver sound returns.

We can’t wait to meet with you to discuss the exciting opportunities offered by this address.
