62 Esmond Street,
Hyde Park, SA
Denford - Under ContractPrivate and secluded, this superb home on a generous corner allotment of over a thousand square metres, is beautifully placed surrounded by gardens and shaded by sweeping return verandahs and wide north-facing terrace. One of the early residences in the heart of one of Adelaide’s most cosmopolitan and popular suburbs the home bears the name of the original area, now known as Hyde Park. Recent extensive renovations and extensions complete a story of one of the iconic homes in the street, resulting in a superb family home.
So attractive from the outside with a discreet entrance to the front verandah with front entry gable, beautiful local bluestone and stunning stained-glass leadlight at the front door, old flows delightfully to new with all the features on the modern family’s wish list. The elegant colour palette, stylish finishes, quality fixtures and superb space are beautifully understated. The owners have created a family home with amazing attention to detail and intelligent design, where new complements the old with consideration for living comfortably and sustainably.
Entering the home, the hall boasts charming character elements. Long and wide, beautiful feature leadlight doors, fanlight, polished floorboards and the traditional arch set against a soft modern colour palette. The three bedrooms off the hall each have lovely natural light through large windows. Each of the bedrooms is individual, bedroom one with a fireplace, restful tones of grey and an ensuite with classic vintage touches. Bedroom two also has an ensuite and offers lovely French doors opening to the verandah and sunny warm décor, while bedroom three is also large with an airy feel. From the hallway a stunning double formal living area is welcoming and so functional. Filled with light via long windows to the verandah and courtyard beyond, these rooms boast classic marble fireplaces with gas log heaters to add to the cosiness of this space on the coolest days. The stunning designer family bathroom is superbly located and so gorgeous it will be difficult to get the kids to leave. The hallway flows into the north-facing informal living and entertaining area to the rear of the home that spans across the home providing outlooks both to the back garden and side courtyard. This area is outstanding, reflecting the careful thought and consideration in designing multi functionality of work, relaxation and social space. Surpassing the usual kitchen, this brand new kitchen by Dovetail is the ultimate cook’s dream. Heaps of storage and fantastic benches with windows directly overlooking outdoors, a hatch opens to the outdoor dining. There is space for a country work bench or rustic work table at the centre. Imagine the children gathering around after school or friends calling by. Featuring Licorice washed cabinetry with stone benchtops, this is the ultimate modern interpretation of the country kitchen. The Falcon cooker has pride of place with multi burners and ovens, looking fantastic against subway tiles. When the natural light has gone for the day, LED strip lighting creates a great effect in the work area. This user-friendly work space extends to the adjacent laundry and store further optimising the work flow and access to the kitchen garden and services area. The adjacent informal space is tremendous with dining and lounge space large enough for all the family and friends to relax congregate or entertain. Designed to maximise winter sunshine and light and avoid direct sun in summer, use of the air conditioning system in this home will be restricted to the hottest of summer days and the bleakest winter months. The Austrian oak flooring looks amazing and is comfortable under the feet. Supplied by Mafi, it is recommended as allergy free. Windows and doors are designed for insect-free ventilation and the large double doors fold back to open onto the terrace extending the area.
The north facing terrace extends the home and overlooks the garden. There are lawns for children to run and play, space for a cubby and play equipment, a home for pets. The kitchen garden is extensive and an area to potter. The courtyard is an intimate spot for an escape.
Ask a local; located prestigiously between King William and Unley Roads, just moments to the city. Local shops, boutique shopping, cafes bars and restaurants are within a short stroll.
