Property of the week: classic Adelaide stone

118 Buxton Street, North Adelaide

Asking price: $2.65 million plus
Bedrooms: Five (four in the main residence and one in the rear studio)
Bathrooms: Three
Garage: Four

Adelaide’s rich architectural tradition as well as grand and spacious living are on offer in this heritage property.

While the street face of this stone home (circa 1890) is easy on the eye, the interior has plenty of aesthetically pleasing and functional features.


Traditional touches include a bay window, return veranda, two marble fireplaces, high ceilings, feature cornices and leadlight front door.

Yet fans of contemporary living will find a lot to like about the home’s layout, including four spacious bedrooms, a smart kitchen and a light-filled,
conservatory-style living area, which complements an outdoor entertaining zone.

Families will also appreciate that the 1032sqm property has a separate and self-contained rear studio/apartment which can be accessed via a spiral staircase from the accompanying double garage.


Accommodation aside, this corner-block property is ideally located in the heart of fashionable North Adelaide, and very close to the renowned O’Connell Street.

North-Adelaide-6Klemich Real Estate sales consultant Richard Hayward says keen sports fans will love the fact that they are close to the revamped Adelaide Oval, venue for AFL matches and top-class cricket contests.

“It’s easy walking distance to the Adelaide Oval, about 250 metres from O’Connell Street’s shops and restaurants, on the doorstep of the Adelaide parklands and the North Adelaide Golf Links,’’ Mr Hayward says.

The agent says the home will appeal to families because it features a lot of accommodation as well as a study.

“It is a character stone residence which is highly sought after,’’ he says.

Mr Hayward says the home has attracted “good interest from a mixed bag’’ of prospective homebuyers – mainly young families with children  “who are wanting well-maintained grounds as well as a premium position with all the amenities’’.

Those community services include nearby private and government schools.

The north facing conservatory overlooks a garden with established trees, which provide privacy and shade in the warmer months.

“Café-style bifold doors open to an undercover decked entertaining area, and fully fenced saltwater swimming pool,’’ Mr Hayward says.

Those who appreciate the good life will be further enchanted by the large wine cellar in which they can store their favourite tipples. A total of four cars can be accommodated in two separate garages, and the property can be accessed via a rear lane.
