Property Spotlight – 51 Whyte Street, Somerton Park


51 Whyte Street is a gleaming gem of a property, set in a golden location and sparkling with luxury and refinement.

Representing this property are Samuel Paton and Jace Mitchell, of Ray White Brighton. Samuel is a participant of SA Real Estate News’ series “The Recruits,” which follows the experiences of several newcomers to the Real Estate industry. This series can be found here.

The frontage of this home is easy on the eyes, its soft hues reminiscent of the sandy and sapphire colours of the nearby beach. Inside, Jarrah floorboards and blackwood fixtures make a more bold statement, infusing the interior with striking and stylish character.

Spread across its two floors are four bedrooms – each containing large built-in wardrobe – as well as a study, multi-use upstairs space and a formal lounge. This is the most grand of these interior spaces, providing a serene, spacious living area.

A perfect equilibrium is found between traditional and modern – classical touches such as the grand architraves are preserved, while respectful styling prevents any clash with modernity.

The more modern touches include three state of the art bathrooms and a sophisticated kitchen, containing extensive bench space, nearly every conceivable kitchen appliance, and built-in wine cabinet and rack.

The modernity of 51 Whyte Street also imbues the home with a firm hold on the elements – a feature gas fireplace and air conditioning systems keeps the interior spaces at optimum temperature, while solar-heating does the same for the shaded, fenced pool. A programmable irrigation system channels water into the gardens, ensuring healthy greenery year-round.

However, as refined as the development of 51 Whyte Street has been, it is not necessarily finished. New owners are welcome to add a few more facets to this gem, as the structural layout of the property allows for further extension of the second floor.

If this property is a gem, and it most certainly is, it is the adornment of a shining crown, other jewels sitting alongside it. The golden bands of Jetty Road Brighton and Jetty Road Glenelg stretch nearby, the spires of Sacred Heart College and Brighton Secondary stand conveniently close, and supermarkets and pubs are dotted in close proximity like gemstones. Waves lap at the base of the crown, the aforementioned beach a mere six minute walk away.

51 Whyte Street is on sale for $1.399 to $1.499 million, and images and floor plan can be viewed here.
