18A Francis Street, Belair

This is a very special place to live….

Where that country feeling meets city convenience. At the end of your day, come home to your own space and a unique environment that can be so hard to find this close to the city. Unley and Hyde Park are an easy 15minute drive with the city a further 5 minutes.
Your new home is divided into two… one is a superb character residence and sited behind is a detached cedar dwelling! All set-up for lucky teenagers, use it as a creative studio retreat or where your extended family and welcome guests will feel right at home.
Sky and city views and a north facing outlook to the environment are all here… you certainly don’t feel closed in. The warm sunshine will brighten up those winter days and this perfect aspect will provide balmy summer evenings around an amazing pool-side setting.
The position within Belair is very peaceful and at the same time convenient to local attractions. You can walk to and enjoy the amazing environs of our Belair National Park, catch the train to town, or wander down to the Sheoak Café, popular bakery and cellar door. You will also be rich for choice when it comes to schools.
Tucked away at the end of Francis Street on a beautiful 1118sqm allotment, the main residence was built in 1985 with the timeless appeal of stacked bluestone and contrasting brickwork. Inside there is a certain charm all of its own and real sense of place with a classic floorplan that separates the living spaces downstairs and retreats the three main bedrooms and bathroom to the upper level. The good-size bedrooms are complemented by a stunning balcony setting you will have to come and feel for yourself.
Downstairs, the country-style kitchen looks out to cottage gardens, there is room for an everyday dining table and the walk-in larder is a handy feature. The two main living areas are separated by a magnificent open-fire place that has been crafted out of solid bluestone quarried from the Adelaide Hills. There is a lounge/living room and a formal dining room that is filled with natural light and where colonial-style doors open to the veranda and your very special rear yard setting. Here, you can really slow down time and truly relax out on the back porch.
There is ideally a separate toilet with vanity on this lower level, a laundry/utility room and handy under-stair storage.

On the outside the detached cedar cottage with its gangplank entry and dormer windows looks like it belongs in a picture-book, while inside the spacious rooms over two levels will take you by surprise. There is a separate bathroom and room to create a kitchen and make it completely self-contained.

A wander through beautifully established gardens will lead you to a garden gazebo and a superb in-ground pool setting. Surrounded by a large deck where you can relax pool-side, it is so private down here that after a few peaceful laps this summer - you will have to pinch yourself to know that this lucky lifestyle and stunning home is all yours.

18A Francis Street is truly one of a kind.
