Designed by award-winning architect Max Pritchard, 2 King George Avenue is an award-worthy house. The breathtaking location alone warrants admiration, before the home itself is even considered.
From the slope of Adelaide’s foothills, the spectacular north facing vista of Torrens valley is a joy to appreciate – a rolling, picturesque expanse of Australian flora, thrumming with birdlife and threaded by the walking trails of Linear Park.
Any home with these picturesque views would be remiss to cut them off from the interiors, and architect Max Pritchard has not done so. He interrupts the walls as often as possible, with countless wide windows, but also finding every opportunity to place a glass sliding door in the wall, as an inlet to one of the many balconies or decks and the idyllic views beyond.
The most striking example of this is the wall of glass on the ground floor, connecting the kitchen and living space to the curved deck, and letting in the soft, invigorating yellow of sunlight, and the green of the natural landscape, all visible from the foyer.
2 King George Avenue requires a second storey to contain all its excellence. Across the two levels, five bedrooms are spread, the spacious master suite adorned with walk-in robe, en suite and private balcony.
Some houses require rearrangement to suit an owner’s varying whims, some are incapable of satisfying them. 2 King George Avenue is neither. This is the perfect home for every variety of resident, in every state of mind.
The lone resident will find a spectacular home, and never be short of guest rooms. For a collective in a sociable state, the curved deck and living areas allow for the communal experience. In cases where there are more occupants than there is desire for company, multi-zone living allows for residents to live almost as if in separate homes.
This home is a breathtaking spectacle, both natural and man made, as well as a stunning technical design. For the owner who wishes to start every morning with an electrifying visual stimulus, this home is unmissable.
2 King George Avenue is on sale for $1.1 to $1.2 million, and is being represented by Kay Morris and Michele Alexandrou of Toop&Toop Real Estate.
