In a street full of character homes, this town hall-inspired facade finds a way to stand out.
Behind statuesque fencing and leafy green hedges at 32A Marlborough Street, College Park, lies a striking triple-tiered frontage.
The Adelaide home’s facing was inspired by the original St Peters townhall just down the road, but the interior is all modern.
On the market with a price in the low to mid $4 millions, Toop & Toop Real Estate agent Megan Thredgold says the 1,344sqm property is one of the best on the street.
“It’s a new build, about eight years old,” Megan says. “The owners bought the land and had it designed and built from scratch.”
“It’s been beautifully designed and kept, it looks brand new.”
A dramatic entrance foyer opens onto 10-foot ceilings and a wide corridor, breaking off onto the first of six bedrooms. The master bedroom tucked away at the back of the residence enjoys several luxuries of its own, like its own access to the pool and bed-framing pillars. A deluxe dressing space that takes up a full room provides plenty of space for your wardrobe, while the designer en suite goes above and beyond with dark timber fittings and a luxurious square spa bath.
While the master bedroom can be found at the back of the house, a similarily large bedroom with its own en suite can be found at the front of the house.
“It’s essentially a second master bedroom,” Megan explains. “It’s been designed so the front of the house is fully self-sufficient with custom-made cavity sliding doors so the back of the house can be closed off.
“It’s perfect for multiple families, or if you have your parents living with you.”
The central room houses an open-plan living, dining room, and adjoining kitchen. Custom built-in timber cabinetry in the kitchen and around the television link the spaces together, with plenty of room for a table under the custom, glittering chandelier.
Speaking of glittering, the kitchen’s Caeserstone benchtops sparkle beneath multiple spotlights, offset by steel and frosted glass appliances.
Just outside an al fresco terrace with its own outdoor kitchen looks onto enclosed gardens and a decadent heated saltwater pool, and past the pool is another fantastic space. The nearby 85sqm studio can be used as a self-contained entertaining space, or for nearly any other purpose.
“The owners used it to house cars, it’s perfect for car collectors because it’s up the back of the property, it’s secure and alarmed, and six cars can fit in there,” Megan says.
“It’s carpeted, fully air-conditioned, and has its own bathroom, television and kitchenette so you could even convert it into an apartment if you wanted.”
