House for sale
10 Dutton Terrace,
5 2 4
Position and prestige - meet your family manor in Medindie.Fit for a Lord Mayor and built for one C1912, this sympathetically restored 5-bedroom, 2-bathroom sandstone return verandah bay window villa claims some 1361sqm* of corner position on one of Medindie's finest, tree-lined avenues.
Trust Medindie to enthral like this; the current custodians fell hard for its Mountain Ash and Jarrah parquetry floors 30 years ago, where decorative fireplaces, ceilings and leadlight fill many of its 12 elegantly preserved main rooms.
And surprisingly, its 423sqm* of grand formality is lavished in light - rare for a villa - before splitting comfortably into family casual.
Masculinity infuses the formal living filled with ornate timber, 3-metre* fireplace, large bay window and glorious leadlight; the grandeur incredible, ceilings inconceivable and Christmas - unforgettable.
To a 16-seat celebration-worthy dining room with wainscoting, picture rails and chandelier, deserving of silver spoons all round before its French doors open to the terrace.
Prestige fills the 'Pink Room' - its rouge walls warm against plush carpets and more astounding leadlight.
Where parquetry turns carpet, the master turns into a maiden's dream with a dressing room adjoining a heritage-style ruby and cream en suite - more class and more extraordinary space.
Four more generous bedrooms line the path to family comfort where casual living, dining and a contemporary kitchen brings the mood, modern.
But history lives on, from the original butler's pantry, dry cellar and solid interior doors, to full-height storage of the "East Wing" where the maid rested, and the original servant bell is still affixed to the 13-inch* thick wall...
The one Lady Bruce and Miss Gwen rang often - their names still clearly legible.
To the established, private gardens encircling the estate where four terraces including a wisteria-draped return verandah lets you choose the view - or plan the lap pool (STCC.)
In a suburb supplying Wilderness Girls' School, proximity to North Adelaide, the city and the never-ending food scene of Prospect Road, there's no doubt Dutton will endure for generations to come...
