This delightful 1880s maisonette located in the charming village atmosphere of old Kensington, offers the best of both eras with up-to-date amenities & Victorian-era character features.
Painstakingly restored by a qualified engineer, the attention to detail is astounding, and no expense has been spared. The external walls have been injected with silicon by Adelaide's leading salt damp experts "Tech Dry" and also offer thermal properties which keep the cottage considerably cooler in summer, reducing the need for air-conditioning.

However, there are split system reverse cycle air conditioners both upstairs & downstairs to provide the desired conditions for any season. It has also been hardwired for networking.

The galvanized roof and gutters are new, as are the Jarrah floorboards on the ground floor and the Tasmanian oak floorboards on the first floor.
The handmade "Broom Stick" front fence follows local heritage, as does the original front section, restored with heritage cornices for the new 3.4m ceilings.
Exposed Oregon rafters add character to the sloping ceiling of the first -floor master bedroom and ensuite, accessed by a bespoke jarrah & steel staircase.
The kitchen cabinetry is Tasmanian oak with beech benchtops, contrasted with stainless steel & glass for the splash back. Top class Blum soft closing drawers, and opaque glass infills for the overhead cupboards add style and practicality to the spacious kitchen.
The matching mobile kitchen island bench offers extra preparation space as well as a drop-side table for entertaining.
Quality appliances include a stainless steel Kleenmaid electric oven & gas cooktop. Also included in the sale is a European under-bench washing machine, stainless steel Fischer & Paykel single-drawer dishwasher, and the stainless steel Electrolux fridge & freezer.
The main bathroom on the ground floor includes a claw foot cast iron heritage bath with a frameless glass shower enclosure.
A generous attic with full insulation offers plenty of scope for storage or access to a private rooftop hideaway. The side lane offers a parking alternative with a right of way.
The rear courtyard is protected with a substantial sail cloth and has Merbau decking as well as stone grey pavers. It provides the opportunity of an inviting outside entertaining area for most of the year.
