Want to live like the Men in Black … the cardboard cut-out version that is? Here’s your chance, with Unley Park’s favourite alien slayer home up for rent.
Adelaide’s iconic Men in Black house at 224b Cross Rd could be yours to lease for just $975 a week, and yes – the iconic cut-out must stay.
Tamir Dunning of Tamir Dunning Real Estate Unley said the four-bedroom house, which sold in August last year for $1.5 million, was an unmissable chance for Sci-Fi fans.
The multi-level home has been something of a landmark to locals for the past 20 years, on one of Adelaide’s major roads.
“Since 1998, Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones have stood proud in the window overlooking Cross Road and defending Adelaide and the galaxy from the worst scum of the universe – and now is your unique opportunity to call this property your headquarters and join them,” he said.
“While the tenant has the right to store the cut-out, it has been clearly labelled in the tenancy agreement that the item must be cherished and cared for.
“The owners have put a high value on it and stipulated that it must be meticulously cared for.”
Featuring a deceptively humble facade, the four-bedroom property, which is set on a sprawling 1950sqm block with stunning gardens, features a 1970s three-level main home and a separate guesthouse. Both were renovated to a high standard.
Other features include a designer kitchen, four separate living areas, a separate balcony and decked entertaining area, and a three-car garage with automatic remote entry.
“We already had a lot of good interest with 14 groups inspecting the home during the first open,” Mr Dunning said.
“I think the property would be ideally suited to a family as it comes with four big living areas and a big garden.
“The house will also come with a gardener who will come out once a month to make sure the garden is looked after.”
This property is being offered with a 12 month fixed term lease agreement with the tenant to pay all water usage and supply charges.
Pet are negotiable.
