1960's Gem on Oakbank's Rural Fringe
With fantastic views over the neighbouring racecourse and Mount Lofty Ranges, this authentic 1960’s home with feature tuck pointed Basket Range sandstone façade has outstanding potential. The home is solid stone and brick construction, has 9 foot ceilings throughout and generous room dimensions. Set on 1510sqm (approx.) allotment with excellent rear access this is sure to appeal to the astute buyer.
The elevated home has a welcoming entrance, via covered verandah, to a wide hallway. The vintage shag carpet throughout hides timber floorboards awaiting discovery. The slow combustion heater, central to the home and providing a good thermal bank, is a focal point within the large lounge opposite which the timber windows frame the garden views and racecourse beyond.
For the chef of the home there’s plenty of space within the kitchen which has solid timber cabinets, servery to the meals area, and handy portable island bench. The master bedroom overlooks the front garden, has BIR’s and adjoins the garage (under main roof) which could house future ensuite or WIR.
Bedroom 2 & 3 have ample room and both house BIR’s. The home is serviced by 1 bathroom with shower, tub, timber vanity and separate toilet. Alongside which sits the laundry with external access and handy 2nd shower.
With easy access on both sides of the home the fully concreted driveway would have been an impressive feature in it’s day and allows for ample parking and good shed access. The mature Elm tree shades the rear garden in summer whilst allowing light through to the various colourful bulbs in winter. All of which can be enjoyed from the rear pergola decking and BBQ area.
As mentioned, this home has outstanding potential. Oakbank is a tightly held location with welcoming community, great local specialty shops, hotel and easy access via Balhannah to the freeway and Adelaide Beyond. Homes in this particular location, with rural outlooks on a large allotment, will continue to be sought after for years to come.
