Property Spotlight – 1890s sandstone villa provides vibrant and refined luxury


1 Williams Avenue was constructed in circa 1895. An elevated sandstone villa evolving into a home of such elegant splendour, that the previous owners held onto it for 27 years before putting it on the market. The vibrance, heritage and composition of the home, leave little wonder at the decision to spend a quarter of a century within it.

Luxurious layout

Across 1,254 square metres, this refined home sprawls – each room benefiting from the extravagant heritage and the convenient contemporary.

The spacious sitting room and three of four bedrooms, include resplendent marble fireplaces; the master bedroom also featuring a dressing room, built-in-robes and an ensuite.

Connecting these rooms to luxurious bathrooms and a lavish wine cellar, is a picturesque hall with lead light windows and a decorative arch.

Along this hallway and many rooms within the house are the gleaming floorboards and intricate cornices, idyllic reminders of the heritage of the home.

Harmony of hues

The different colours that permeate this house combine to make a vibrant and complementary canvas.

An owner will be inundated with as much green as a sack full of emeralds, from the immaculate gardens, to the trees lining the cul-de-sac to the lush lawns.

Inside, the natural tones of the polished floorboards contrast with the pale shades of white walls, that flow outside with the purity of sandstone, ivory-white quoins, metalwork and snow-white roses.

Similarly picturesque and agreeable locations in close vicinity, include Dulwich cafes and the Victoria Park Racecourse. Proximity to the CBD, as well as Hutt Street and East End, provide a myriad of opportunities to enjoying the bustling vitality Adelaide has to offer – the same vibrancy captured in this stellar home.

1 Williams Avenue is on sale for $1.75 to $1.85 million, and is being represented by Nicole Neill of Toop&Toop Real Estate.
