8 The Common was constructed by Sarah Homes circa 1970, based upon designs of renowned architect John Chappel, and has since been restored to perfection.
The work of a renowned designer
Diverse shades and shapes fill the home – the brick walls and archways, the gleaming blue of the pool, the emerald lawns and shrubbery, the lavish timber deck.
The owner of the home speaks on the spaces these frame and connect, shedding light on the home’s merits as only a resident can.
“The main residence has 5 large ensuite bedrooms, each with its own space and privacy. The family room and open plan kitchen are in the centre, the heart of the home, where everyone meets up to spill their hearts out and ease their hunger.”
“The formal living and dining rooms are picture perfect settings for meals and conversations, looking out over The Common.” The views on offer are the bold green of lush verges and the pale hues of scrubland, turned orange at the beginning and end of each day.
An outdoor area provides extensive opportunities for recreation, as the owner attests. “Choose from tennis, badminton, basketball, footy and swimming, relaxing in the Japanese spa or sauna/steam room, soaking up the sun or just reading your favourite book.”
“The outdoor pavilion with full kitchen setup enables the hosts and good friends to enjoy the best the Adelaide lifestyle and this home have to offer… you can see everyone is enjoying what they are doing and simply just relaxing.”
Perhaps the highlight of the home is its subterranean secret – an owner and guests can “go down the spiral staircase to their cave, the wine cellar, sharing the joy from the fruitage of the winemakers’ hands and spirits!”
