How much would you pay for a 2,040sqm estate in Adelaide’s North?
This classic two-storey, bluestone mansion on North Adelaide’s Barnard Street is selling for a whopping $6 – 6.5 million, and it’s not hard to see why.
First built in 1867, character features from the original property remain today. Beautiful moulding supports pendant lights, and multiple chimneys service more than half a dozen different rooms. The parquet floors throughout and the stained glass in many of the house’s doors is just another reminder of the building’s historic heritage, and its style.
Booth & Booth agent Charles Booth says for all its historic qualities, the building doesn’t lack for modern convenience.
“It has a feeling of a bygone era, but it’s been very well kept and maintained and it’s got a very livable and modern functionality,” Charles says.
“The kitchen in particular has been kept up to date with the latest appliances.”
What stately home would be complete without a ballroom, or its own library? Make a grand entrance under a large skylight, and dance the night away on decorative parquet flooring.
For a quieter night, curl up next to the fireplace with a good book, chosen from the floor to ceiling shelving surrounding you.
There are eight different bedrooms to chose from, with a massive attached dressing room for the master, and lavishly decorated marble bathrooms.
“It was a family home, but the family’s grown up and the kids have moved out so it’s surplus to requirements,” Charles says.
“It’s a lot of accommodation, this grand mansion is on a substantial landholding.”
The land is just as impressive as the building. Manicured gardens and lawns surround the bluestone walls, with sweeping views towards the Adelaide CBD visible from the second-floor verandah and rooftop terrace.
Step out the back door and you’re almost on the flood-lit tennis court – just be ready to serve! Meanwhile, an ivy-covered fence and another lawn provide privacy for another outdoor feature to enjoy – a tiled, in-ground pool – conveniently located near the dayroom and a bathroom.
“In terms of North Adelaide, it’s one of the more substantial landholdings, and it’s quite well elevated in terms of where it’s located in the street,” Charles says. “ It’s a very nice property.”
