A Rare offering of Position and Possibility

This welcoming full brick home is offering light, character and many future possibilities. It has been well maintained and is immediately livable with the potential to add another storey (subject to council approval) and landscape the very large backyard to create your dream entertaining space, with ample room for a pool.
A charming bungalow on a spacious allotment of approximately 731 m2 which has been owned by the same family for 45 years. This lovely home is on a quiet street in one of Adelaide's premier suburbs. The house has high ceilings (3.1m), elaborate cornices, and wooden floorboards throughout, complemented by tall skirting boards, ceiling roses and stunning stained glass windows working together to keep in character with the period of the home's design.
This bungalow features a modern kitchen fully equipped with a gas cook-top and oven, range hood, PuratapTM water filtration system, and ample storage and bench space. There is a separate dining room and two living spaces(the second living space or rumpus room can also be converted to a 4th bedroom or teenager's retreat), lending the home to excellent hosting capacity with the family room adjacent to the kitchen and leading to outside. There is a delightful outdoor entertaining area with shelter from harsh sun or rain. Both the front and back gardens are low maintenance, but a selection of over a dozen well-established fruit trees enable the occupants to enjoy delicious bounty each year. A substantial shed provides additional storage space.
All three bedrooms are of generous proportions and there is a huge tiled bathroom with a spa. There is also a second bathroom - more than a mere powder room as it has a full shower and toilet - tucked into the laundry with easy access from outside. (Just perfect if you decide one day to put a pool in!)
There are split system air conditioning units, a gas heater and ceiling fans throughout the house, and downlights also keep energy costs to a minimum. There is ample secure parking for 3 cars and undercover off-street parking for 2 more.
It is a 15-minute drive to the Adelaide CBD, or a 6km bike ride. Bus stops on nearby Prospect Road and Regency Road are a mere stroll away, making public transport very accessible regardless of whether your destination is north, south, east or west.
Prospect Kindergarten is only 800m away, and Prospect North Primary School is only 500m. There are a number of other good schools nearby, and the address is currently zoned for the much sought-after Adelaide High School, South Australia's oldest government high school, with facilities that include a gymnasium, weights room, tennis, basketball and netball courts, cricket nets and 4 ovals, library, Performing Arts Centre, science labs, lecture theatres and a boatshed on the banks of the River Torrens (!).
The property really is ideally located, being close to the Northpark shopping centre and several restaurants and 24-hour facilities. One day developers will have a field day with such a prime real estate spot, but in the meantime there is a beautiful home with much charm to enjoy and raise a family in.
