15 Timpson Street, Port Adelaide

WHEN almost 80 groups view a newly-listed home in just an hour you know the property in question is something special.
That’s exactly what happened when 15 Timpson St, Port Adelaide, hit the market with potential buyers flocking to the historic former flour mill, which has been stunningly transformed into a unique example of warehouse living.

Ouwens Casserly sales consultant Anita McKendrick said response to the two-bedroom, two-bathroom, light-filled abode, which features an indoor fish pond, had been “huge”.
“So many things make this property unique and it is absolutely one of a kind,” she said.
“The level of detail that this property has with the stunning cathedral ceilings, original stone work, jarrah floors and natural light give it an absolute wow factor.

“The renovation was done more than 20 years ago, yet it was so ahead of its time that many prospective buyers have commented on how new everything appears.”
Built in 1876, the John McKell & Son’s Flour Milling and Engineering branding still takes pride of place on the stunning, stone warehouse facade.

Large skylights flood every corner of the home with light and open-plan living takes on a new meaning with the abode centred around a slow combustion heater and quirky yet charming sunken lounge with built-in seating and leather cushions.
The two bedrooms on the upper levels are bright and open, with balustrading allowing views to the living spaces below.
“It has been meticulously maintained while keeping the quirky factor alive, with an underground cellar, sunken lounge and wicked bar with recycled lathe parts,” Ms McKendrick said.

Owner Brian Perkins bought the property in 1997 and said it had been great for entertaining, with the kitchen offering an industrial ambience with stainless steel benchtops, black glass cabinetry and SMEG appliances.
“It’s been nice to have people over, particularly with the heater in the sunken lounge, which is great for enjoying some cheese and bickies with a glass of wine,” he said.

Mr Perkins, a former land conveyancer, said the mezzanine level office had provided a tranquil location to work from home. He also transformed half the double garage into a man cave.

“The other great thing about it is the location,” he said.
“It’s close to the river, it’s close to shopping and it was only 15 minutes to Henley Beach South, where I was previously.
“I’m going to miss it, I’ve been here 21 years but I’m downsizing and have bought an apartment.”

Ms McKendrick said strong buyer interest had come from residents from surrounding suburbs, including Largs and Semaphore, who had been waiting for the perfect property to come up.
“We have also had a big response from passive buyers looking for a lock-up-and-leave and to downsize from the Adelaide Hills and surrounds,” she said.

“Our target demographic is definitely single men.
“The property has attracted lots of mature bachelors and same-sex couples, along with both young and mature childless couples.”





The property is for sale via expression of interest closing November 27 at 5pm.
