Past meets present in Adelaide family mansion

An exquisitely renovated villa in Glen Osmond shows just how well tradition and modernity can work together.

Based around the earlier 1955 structure but extensively updated and upgraded, this six-bedroom home represents the pinnacle of modern living. 

With a price tag of $3.6 to $3.9 million, the 1,798sqm property on Day Road, Glen Osmond, houses manicured lawns, expansive patios, a saltwater pool, and your own private lawn tennis court.

It’s all based around the two-storey family home. Oversize glass sliding doors lead from the backyard into the open plan living area, where high white walls provide a blank canvas for warm timber highlights to wow. 

Taplin Real Estate agent David Baxter says the dwelling’s transformation has been impressive.

“I was extremely impressed with the decor and the way it had been renovated and the openness of the living areas downstairs,” he says.

“Everything flows in the house exceptionally well and there’s the odd little nicety like the wine room and television cabinet.”

Below the downstairs TV is a cosy fireplace, while surrounding it is all the storage you could want!

Across the room is a beautiful timber finish designer kitchen with stone benchtops and adjacent butler’s pantry and views out to the gardens and pool.

There’s a central island with bar seating to keep the kitchen sociable while providing extra bench space, and a large window providing easy access to the outdoor balcony deck.

Raised decking keeps any pool splashing contained, and provides extensive viewing of the manicured lawns.

“The gardens were planted by the original owners and they’re exquisite,” David says.

“It leads out to the tennis court which is north/south facing, which is of course ideal.”

You don’t even need to leave your room to keep an eye on what’s happening outside. The two main bedrooms look over the backyard, with a further three rooms on the top floor facing out onto the front courtyard. As for the master bedroom, it holds even more surprises, like a luxurious double shower in the en suite. Enjoy a private, glass-fenced balcony looking out over not just your own backyard, but views of Adelaide and surrounding district.

“It’s a family home,” Dave says, “but it’s out of the box.”

“It’s had quite an elaborate makeover.”
