They sure don't build them like this any more! Here we have a rare one owner home that has come to market 50 years after being planned and built.
Situated in a quiet residential street high on "Dernancourt Hill" with delightful views toward Mt Lofty, and just a two minute walk to the bus and Dernancourt shopping centre with its great selection of specialty shops and a supermarket, this lovely solid brick (of course) family home has served its owners very well. Clearly built to last for generations, there is plenty of life left in this dwelling yet, and tons of potential for both renovation and / or extension as the new owners may see fit. For example, a potential exists for a second story addition that would offer spectacular views. Of course the fact that the home sits on a touch over the old 1/4 acres of land (1021 SQM approx) allows for plenty of other development possibilities (STCC).
Features of the home are many, but include the basket range frontage and beautiful Terra Cotta roof, and a commanding street presence with its elevated (high side of the road) position and views. Inside via a generous and welcoming entry foyer are large living rooms comprising separate lounge (with the great views), a large combined kitchen / dining area with dishwasher and walk in pantry, 3 or 4 bedrooms as required (one has been utilised as a studio area for many years but is easily utilised as a large 4th bedroom as the new owners may decide), a combination ducted gas heating and refrigerated air conditioning system keeps the home very comfortable throughout the year, assisted by the taller ceilings common in this era. The floor coverings throughout the home combine well with the neat feel of the decor, whilst the master bedroom and lounge are unusually equipped with automatic remote controlled opening of the curtains, no doubt to help take full use of the outlook.
Outdoors to an expected huge (auto watered) garden with a lovely pergola covered area for entertaining in all weather and an assortment of lovely fruit trees, including several espaliered apple trees along the back boundary that provide a lovely backdrop. A rainwater tank (plumbed inside) plus a garden shed and storage area under the main roof are other handy features, as are the single garage and adjacent lock up carport, plus a conveniently placed caravan "pad" for those who may have a van or boat to store.
