Representing the utmost in classical grandeur infused with modern style and sophistication, 'Zephyrside' exists in a celebrated echelon seldom found outside of generational handovers.
Beyond cast iron gates and a sweeping semi-circular return drive, one is ushered into this historic residence via a vast entrance hall bounded only by towering approximate 4.74m ceilings, an immense and ornate fireplace and soaring character-laden doorways granting entry to the grand ballroom, library complete with fireplace and in-built floor-to-ceiling shelving, immense formal dining room, the Hamptonsesque open plan lounge area and sun-drenched conservatory all overlooking meticulously manicured gardens highlighted by a solar-heated swimming pool and sunken Mediterranean style outdoor entertaining area.
Comprising 11 main rooms as well as a gym, sauna and dry wine cellar, and currently disposed as a three-storey 4 bedroom, 4 bathroom residence sited on approximately 1,800 sqm of land, this landmark residence surpasses any other reference to the unique or rare.
Enhancing the appeal of this stately residence is the separation between the living quarters downstairs and three bedrooms upstairs, excluding the large ground floor bedroom adjacent to a private and modern bathroom.
Upstairs, the presidential master offers an expansive ensuite adjacent to an oversized WIR and over 30 sqm retreat offering green views to the city.
Further features to this iconic circa 1871 estate include custom period detail throughout, polished Baltic Pine floorboards, marble kitchen island and benchtops, expansive bay windows in ballroom, panelled character ceilings, original Victorian wooden staircase, built-in bar fridges in open plan living area, third-storey widow's walk, BIRs in all bedrooms, modern downlighting, ducted heating and cooling, sub-surface irrigation to all mature plantings and rear gardener's shed with sink.
Prominently located on a wide tree-lined avenue in one of Adelaide's most prestigious and coveted suburbs only minutes from the CBD, 146 Molesworth Street presents as the scarcest of opportunities for those seeking the grandeur of a bygone era in a practical, modern and luxurious context.
