A place where friends can drop by for relaxed gatherings; this stylishly renovated and extended home inspires a warm reaction in both visitors and passers-by. Add exciting work-from-home options and nearby Queen Street attractions eclectic cafes, boutiques and homeware stores - and the appeal is clear!

The 1900's freestone fronted cottage with its corner shopfront is something of a local style icon, having been featured in both House and Garden and The Adelaide Magazine.
There is well-screened private access to the cottage plus double doors to the former caf-bakery, now a light and airy studio space with wine cellar below, providing a separate client entry for a home-based business. It works equally well as a second living area, guest or teen bedroom.

Clever design touches and storage solutions abound throughout the home: stunning floating bench seating is integrated with spacious built-ins in two more lovely big bedrooms while a huge louvered window and rain shower bring a taste of the tropics to the sleekest of bathrooms. With overhead ceiling rose open shower , concealed cistern, extra deep bath plus high end tapware this is a bathroom that your friends will envy.

Stepping through a doorway at the end of the hall, the transition from old to new is nothing short of miraculous as you find yourself enveloped in a sea of green. Character features preserved with polished floorboards, stained glass entry and high ceilings flow seamlessly from the old to the new. A glass breezeway supplies handy access to the carport before flowing through to a contemporary lifestyle hub that works beautifully for fifty guests or more. Here, massive sliding doors can be opened up to lush courtyard pockets for seamless indoor-outdoor entertaining.

The 2009 additions featuring polished concrete floors also play host to a contemporary kitchen voted one of Australia's top ten rooms, where a timber dining table glides from under Calcutta marble to give you seating for eight. All-Smeg stainless steel appliances and a wall of black oak veneer storage make this the perfect entertaining zone.
