Enjoy the best of all worlds in this luxury entertainer at 9 Prescott Tce, Rose Park
A stunning Rose Park property combines the best of contemporary luxury living with a sense of timeless charm – and is ready for new owners to move in and enjoy.
Nestled among other prestige homes in one of the suburb’s premier tree-lined streets, the four-bedroom villa has been extensively renovated by its present owners, who bought it after moving back to Adelaide from Melbourne in 2010.
“We were living in Melbourne at the time and saw it and just fell in love with it,” says one of the vendors, who asked to remain anonymous. “We loved the beautiful street it was on, its three-sided veranda and classic Victorian architecture. It’s handy to the CBD and quality schools and you can walk to the parklands … it ticked a lot of boxes in terms of its proximity to Norwood, and Dulwich Village as well.”
Set on a large corner block of 1579sqm, the home has been tastefully rejuvenated with a series of renovations and extensions.
“When we bought it, it was a deceased estate and it had been gently run down over the years … so it needed absolutely everything done,” she says. “So we’ve reroofed, rewired and replumbed, we’ve rebuilt the whole veranda and the front fence was redone. We also did the extension on the back, the garden was landscaped and we built the garage as well – so it’s been very comprehensive.
“It’s come up beautifully and it’s been an absolute pleasure to live there. It’s a really lovely house with a really good feel to it. It’s got a really peaceful atmosphere, I think.”
The vendor says the light-filled living area is one of the home’s key features.
“I love the natural light we get,” she says. “I designed the extension to feel like a conservatory and to really connect with the garden. Having that very light-filled extension on the back has just been a very pleasurable place to be at all times of the day.”
The home’s list of features is impressively long, starting with its four queen-sized bedrooms – with the master including a dressing room and luxe ensuite.
The chef-inspired kitchen boasts a Siemens induction cooktop, NEFF double wall ovens and a walk-in pantry, while a childrens’ play room/teenager’s retreat opens out to the terrace, the designer garden and solar-heated pool. A presidential-style library/formal lounge has built-in bookcases and antique chandelier, and a stunning lower ground floor level boasts a versatile study/home theatre room and wine cellar.
There is garage space for three vehicles and a spacious detached self-contained studio/home office, which could also be used as teenager’s retreat. The vendor says the home has been “fantastic” for entertaining.
“All the doors open out on to the terrace so it’s great for barbecues,” she says. “We had a dinner party for 55 people where we had a big long table down the back lawn, which was great.”
And she believes the property will appeal to a “broad” range of prospective buyers. “It could appeal to Baby Boomers who are downsizing from a large place because it is a very low-maintenance house to live in and you do have a lot of different spaces – and it can expand and contract if you have family visiting,” she says. “It works well as a family home – and for anyone who is running a business from home, it works especially well because of the studio.
“It’s got an ensuite and a little kitchenette but it does have direct access from the street … so clients can come in and out without having to go through the property. It’s completely self-contained – you could also have a teenager living in there when they’re old enough.”
