205a Wireless Road, Mount Gambier Step back in time W HEN you walk through the front door of this impressive property, you step back in time to an era that oozes classic ambience, grand features and timeless appeal. This home – located at 205a Wireless Road West – is a hidden gem that would be a wonderful home for a family. With the front of the home built more than 100 years ago, the limestone property has been lovingly and meticulously extended to create a magnificent home that blends the old with the new. The home boasts a stunning bay window, French doors, gorgeous classic bathrooms, original Baltic pine flooring, ornate fireplaces and a large classic neutral kitchen. The most impressive feature of this home is no doubt the original fittings still remain prominent throughout the home. In particular, the home has pressed tin on the ceilings in its original section as well at the front of the home. Nestled along leafy sycamore and elm trees, the property – sprawled over three quarters of an acre – is just a stone’s throw away from the TAFESA/ University of SA precinct and close to Tenison Woods College. The home is also flanked by a gorgeous English garden, which includes a free-range chicken run, an organic vegetable garden, a fruit orchard and a solar heated outdoor pool. Steeped in history, the property – which has been recently painted throughout with a classic neutral colour scheme - also has a number of original stone sheds that add character to the prominent property. One of the stand-out features of the property is its rustic and sheltered outdoor entertainment area, which would be an ideal place for entertainment on a summer’s day. 2 - The Border Watch Real Estate Guide, Friday, February 21, 2014 Marketing agent Peter Dempsey, from Ray White Keatley Mount Gambier, said this new listing was a unique opportunity for a potential buyer to purchase a character-filled home and enjoy a country lifestyle with the convenience of city living. A hidden gem that would be a wonderful home... – Peter Dempsey “This stunning treasure is a one of a kind opportunity that is not to be missed because of its idyllic country living on the edge of the city,” Mr Dempsey said. “The original home is over 100 years old and the pressed tin ceilings add to the character and ambiance of this home.’ In fact, Mr Dempsey described the main bathroom as stunning because of its sense of luxury. “The round leadlight window in the renovated bathroom is something not to miss, along with the opulent claw bath, timeless black and white tiles and vanity with Caesar stone benchtop,” Mr Dempsey said. He said the light-filled open plan living – which had gorgeous 12 foot ceilings, had a decorative gas working fire place and a striking bay window – would be ideal for the avid entertainer. The home boasts a three-car garage, ample shed space and a recently erected colour-bond shed next to the pool. “The 12-foot ceilings throughout the home give a feeling of spaciousness with all the bedrooms having ceiling fans while the spacious family rooms are cooled by both fans and a large split system,” Mr Dempsey said. “All three bedrooms boast their own fireplaces with the two front bedrooms having built in robes and the main bedroom has a spacious walk in en suite and large walk-n robe.” Mr Dempsey urged people to make an appointment to inspect this impressive property, which oozes the charm of yesteryear.
