Iconic 'Prescott House' - A
City Fringe Estate
Enviably positioned astride broad tree-lined estates of Adelaide's most exclusive street stands a majestic two-storey bluestone Manor steeped in history and grandeur infused with modern style.
Today, iconic 'Prescott House' commands attention on an immense land holding of approx. 1,442sqm amidst lush mature gardens containing both a private swimming pool and a sympathetic modern architectural extension built in 2006.
Originally constructed as "Rosslyn" in 1884 as one of Adelaide's earliest estates, the residence was commissioned by MP and hotelier William Sandover whose family donated the Sandover Medal to the Western Australian Football League as the award for the leagues' best and fairest player each season.
Now, 'Prescott House' is defined by ornate character features such as soaring 3.6m ceilings, handsome bluestone construction, broad balconies and intricately detailed skirting boards and cornices complimented by polished Baltic Pine floor boards. Further, the Manor is composed of 6 generous bedrooms (Master with ensuite), 3 bathrooms, 3 living areas and garaging for 2 cars, all connected by a convenient home elevator or feature staircase.
Renovated 3 years ago, the modern kitchen connects seamlessly to the contemporary open-plan living area. Also, boasting stone benchtops, copious amounts of quality cabinetry and luxurious Scandinavian Asko appliances the kitchen is outfitted to a standard befitting the most demanding of gourmands.
Adjacent to the kitchen is the modern living room that flows into a covered outdoor alfresco area surrounded by lush verdant gardens. Also connected to this area is a guest bathroom and large laundry. Featuring on-trend subway tiles and a luxurious sauna the bathroom also has direct access to the pool enclosure, conveniently doubling as a mud room.
Completing the home is a spacious double garage which opens onto the alfresco area, allowing additional space when entertaining. Further, atop the garage is a large 5th bedroom which could also be used as a teenage retreat or storage area.
Located in close proximity to popular Rose Park Primary School, elite private schools and the trendy cafes, restaurants and shopping of the Norwood Parade the home is a 5 minute drive from Adelaide's CBD.
Residing at the intersection of the character of yesteryear and modern convenience, 'Prescott House' represents a rare opportunity to secure a truly iconic residence in one of Adelaide's most elite suburbs.
