It may look like a regular, pretty Bluestone villa from the outside, but step through the front door of this Fullarton home and you will see that it’s just about as modern as houses come.
You will find it at 1 Katherine St.
The circa 1900 property has been given a sophisticated renovation that retains many of its standout character features including high ceilings, a central hallway with ceiling arches, stained glass panels and an original iron lacework veranda.
Yet it also incorporates a host of luxury modern touches with fixtures and fittings of an exceptionally high standard.
A particular special feature is the floor-to-ceiling glass wall in the open-plan living/kitchen/dining area to the rear of the home. The glass is thermal and has been acoustically treated. It lets in light and views over the neat rear yard, with paving, greenery and an outdoor kitchen with a barbecue.
The main kitchen, meanwhile, has feature Caesarstone, a large island bench, a butler’s pantry and modern dark-toned cabinetry, offset by elegant pendant lights.
The main bedroom is also something quite special. Luxuriously large, it includes a substantial walk-in wardrobe/dressing room as well as a large ensuite with a cocoon-shaped freestanding bath. Another coocoon bath can be found in the main bathroom.
Additional features include plush carpet to the bedrooms, plus extensive use of solid oak parquetry flooring. The property also has a new roof, new wiring and new plumbing.
The four-bedroom home on 511sqm is on the market with LJ Hooker Kensington/Unley. It will go to auction on Saturday, December 15 and is being marketed without a price guide.
