*** For sale by Tender, Closing Tuesday 31st October @12pm ***

Situated on one of North Adelaide's prominent tree-lined avenues, this stunning home and grounds has a family history stretching back to the early 1900s. The superb botanic-like gardens weave through the property creating a wonderful back-drop for views through the home's big picture windows.

It is thought that a previous owner employed a well-known Adelaide architect who stamped his mark on this gorgeous villa, adding his version of the popular Anglo-Indian architectural style which was uniquely fashionable during the Victorian and Federation periods.

The home comprises 4 sprawling bedrooms and the original ballroom has been converted into a study/5th bedroom. The original character features of the formal living and dining rooms have been preserved, while the enormous windows of the rear open plan family, dine and kitchen, drench this area with glorious northern light.
