For over half a century, 54 years to be precise, this landmark home, with its lush English gardens and luxurious interiors has been lovingly cared for by its owners.
Set on 1880sq m block on 519 Torrens Rd, Woodville, the Queen Anne villa was built in 1890. Today, it is a fine example of the restoration work done by its residents in turning this character-filled home into a luxurious abode.
Past the wrought iron gates, a horseshoe driveway leads the way to the four-bedroom residence with a stone frontage and verandahs. The elegant interiors have been heavily inspired by classical European architecture. Detailed cornicing, crystal chandeliers, decorative moulding and classic archways are present throughout the home.
The formal sitting room is equally grand and boasts a curved bay window which overlooks a sunken garden with a stunning water feature. Large picture windows in the dining room offer views of a latticed courtyard.
There is plenty of room both inside and outside the home to entertain family and friends. A large family room opens to a rear tree-lined garden.
The master bedroom, which also has access to the landscaped front gardens, has an ensuite, walk-in robes and dual vanities.
Keeping with the theme, the kitchen too makes a statement with elegant cabinetry, marble splashback and a French-style skylight.
According to Sharyn Yelland of Giordano & Partners, who is presenting the property to the market along with Grant Giordano, the estate is for sale with an asking price of around $3 million.
“A property like this rarely comes up for sale,” Ms Yelland said.
“Given the vendor’s affinity to European interiors and English gardens, the house has been restored around that ethos. The attention to detail is remarkable,” she said.
The home also features a stunning library with stairs leading to a spacious wine cellar. A large office keeps with the aristocratic theme of the home and features detailed cabinetry, ornate ceilings and an open fireplace.
Apart from an enviable location, other highlights of the home include ducted reverse-cycle airconditioning, 13kW solar system, automatic sprinklers and an alarm system.
