This beautiful house I call home was built back in 1878 in the historic beachside town Semaphore. Originally constructed by Josiah Oldfield, a settler who was responsible for bringing the first steam engine to the state of South Australia.
The house has been extensively renovated during the past few years, the home now offers an up to the minute lifestyle while still retaining the charateristics of the orginal house. All 3 main rooms to the front of the property feature high ceilings and original fireplaces. There are three bedrooms with built in robes with a 4th room set as a sitting room or formal dining room.
The kitchen has been updated match the homes character with solid timber cupboards, a large island bench area, stainless steel appliances, and the original fireplace area. This area is an open plan living area with a dinning area and casual living room, overlooking the marvelous swimming pool. A main bathroom is very spacious and has also undergone a recent renovation. There is another room to the rear of the home that is currently used as a study/home office.
Outside is an entertainer's delight. There is a large undercover entertaining patio with shade and weather blinds adjoining the stunning inground solar heated swimming pool. To the rear of the property is a great area offering another entertaining space. This pool room style area is complete with wet bar, room for the pool table and another entertaining space. It is complete with a second bathroom that has direct access from both the pool and the rumpus room.
Additional features to the home include gas heating, reverse cycle air-conditioning, water filter, parking space for 4-5 vehicles, security mesh screens and much more. All this in a beautiful location, only a short walk to the beach, transport and Semaphore Road Precinct, minutes from local shopping centres and the waterfront development of Port Adelaide. Overall an impressive area to stay with the family.
