Located on the quiet, English Oak tree-lined Desaumarez street in the eastern suburbs hot spot of Adelaide’s Kensington Park is this warm, character residence reborn.

Built circa 1926, the home has been extensively renovated and sees 3-bedrooms, 2-bathrooms and 1-garage.

On arrival, one notes the privacy offered through manicured hedges and the handbuilt wooden slate gate. Here, entering into the driveway is a Japanese inspired, professionally landscaped garden, replete with Volcanic Basalt pavers, walls and feature boulders.

Upon entry, the home’s charm and immediate warmth is apparent – provided by the polished Tasmanian Oak floorboards and the sunny aspect.

The home meanders from room to room – echoing the kind of serenity found in the gardens. Here, a wide entrance – replete with feature lighting – guides one through to the dining area, which overlooks the established gardens.

The main living spaces are home to a custom “library wall”, gas fireplace in the main lounge, and German designed Paarhammer custom tilt-and turn windows.

It’s also here the kitchen lands, complete with Falcon gas cooker, oven, overhead pot filler and Miele appliances.

A Sonos audio system serves the rear garden, kitchen and dining area, bathroom and main bedroom.

The home is also privy to three bedrooms, with the master bedroom complete with built-in robe, more custom joinery (which houses VAF speakers).

Kensington Park is close to The Parade’s boutique shops, cafes, cinemas, Burnside Village, Marryatville shopping precinct and elite schools including Pembroke, Marryatville and Norwood Morialta.

The listing is headed to auction on June 5 and is managed by Stephanie Williams (+61 413 874 888) of Williams Real Estate.
