About this listing
Sold Prior to Auction Under Vendor's Instructions.

A renovated timepiece unveiled in Rosewater.

Relive the romance. Where Torrens Road takes a quiet step back in time amongst an impressive lineage of turn-of-the-century homes, there is one Return Verandah Villa that stands out above its tree-lined streetscape.
It's Fern Leaf House.

A year ago, you'd be forgiven for thinking this home had had its day; our owner thought otherwise.

One year on, a white glove restoration, some four months of painting, repointing, plus a painstaking redress to the tessellated tiles wrapping its bluestone facade reveals a striking piece of historic Port Adelaide ready to invite a new generation within.

Where no sweat will bead on your brow...

Non-negotiable originals are the two marble, and two timber fireplace mantels each with individual designs and glazed hearths, as well as polished Baltic boards prepared for a stampede of family hooves.

The quintessential villa layout sees four grand, front bedrooms, lofty 12 foot ceilings, decorative cornices and a central hallway arch that will keep you staring for days, while white decor lets the stained-glass sing as natural light sweeps through its majestic rooms.

Two further versatile and equally beautiful rooms, namely a family and sitting room each with fireplaces, allow French doors to grant access either side of the return verandah.

But let's go beyond beauty. It's here you'll open the doors to guests, perch on the raised verandahs to watch the kids play safely on the bocce-ready lawns or scoot around the circular driveway behind secure gates.

And home to the new modern kitchen, the rear addition warmed by jarrah floors and north-facing light introduces casual dining, an all-inclusive family bathroom with freestanding bath, a well-equipped laundry with second toilet and sliding door access to the rear garden.

There's no downside - with plans for Port Adelaide's cultural heart bringing a new buzz, great beaches and nearby eclectic café strips of Queen Street, Hawkers Road or Plant4 Bowden, it's time to rethink Rosewater.

Fern Leaf House opens a new family chapter.
