1920s Gentleman's Bungalow for sale #1920s #bungalow #realestate #Adelaide
There is something so Adelaide about stone buildings with wide tiled verandahs, overlooking a lawn tennis court. Can't you imagine sitting here in a seagrass chair sipping on a lemonade (or gin and tonic) on a warm summer's day, watching a set of tennis?
This 1923 Gentleman's bungalow is built from Mt Lofty stone. It is a rambling 5 bedroom, 2 bathroom home set on 1,858 square metres of land. It is for sale.
The extensions are in keeping with the 1920s "hollywood" style.
While I'm not a fan of fussy looking swags on curtains, the original part of the house is generally decorated in a neutral way.
Australians are not big fans of wall paper. Nor are they in favour of too much clutter, especially in kitchens. Isn't it interesting how a fashion and style can be so specific to a country?
The classic lines of red brick, terracotta tiles, cream fretwork and woodwork in these extensions exudes calm. It looks so neat.
Whistler Ave Unley Park is adjacent to Heywood Park and close to the shopping precinct of King William Road. Interested?
