Historic Adey Road holds a significant chapter in time, and number 5 is one of the landmark homes that share this privilege. Behind the age-old Oak tree is a Symmetrical Sandstone Cottage pristinely presented on a very beautiful 1,068sqm allotment.

An easy walk to Blackwood Village shopping, popular cafes, and the train for town – what a lifestyle to be enjoyed! 5 Adey Road is a peaceful home with a feeling of retreat and relaxation - a home for all seasons. Cosy warm in the winter and cool and vibrant in the summer.

The original character features have been faithfully maintained. Often classic homes can be tainted with improvements over time, but number 5 is a perfect representation of its era. High ceilings with delicate cornices and ornate centre pieces, leadlight windows, and polished Baltic Pine floors are all present and in fabulous condition.

The 4 main rooms to the Symmetrical Cottage originally comprised 3 bedrooms. Today there are two huge bedrooms and two separate living areas. Detached from ‘Oak Tree Cottage’ is a self-contained studio or a ‘bed and breakfast’ retreat.

The two main bedrooms have cast iron fireplaces with timber mantels and they both enjoy a beautiful outlook through the verandah to the old Oak tree. The main living area has a cosy combustion heater, and the adjacent formal dining room with its many different uses – perhaps a third bedroom or home office - also provides direct access from the double carport. Separate everyday living areas that also combine perfectly when entertaining!

The simple and un-cluttered galley kitchen has that relaxed country feeling and combines beautifully with the main living area. You’ll love the garden outlook and the natural look of stone, slate and timber. There is built-in pantry storage, and a classic reproduction of a period-style oven that ideally has a gas cook-top.
The marble bathroom is brand new and all class! There are two vanities, a large walk-in shower alcove and separate toilet.

To the rear of the home and complementing the kitchen is a slate tiled sitting room - a room that can be changed with the seasons. This is the perfect spot for breakfast or to recline in your favourite chair and just relax. Colonial doors swing open and bring the outdoors in. An outdoor pergola with salvaged timbers and brick pavers is an extension to this versatile space.

There is valuable drive through access from the huge double carport to the rear of this stunning 1,068sqm allotment, where there are two lock-up garages - perhaps the home for your classic car, and the ideal workshop or painter’s studio. Rear yard access like this is hard to find.

And what a very special rear yard setting this is! Mature trees and beautifully sculptured gardens are a haven for bird life and provide the simple pleasure of being at home with the environment.

Wandering paths of recycled pavers find their way to a series of structures that transport you to rustic a farm-like setting. An outdoor kitchen complete with barbeque and sink combines perfectly with a barn style pergola. Cafe blinds close to create an outdoor room where all there is to do is kick back, relax with a favourite bevvy and catch a game of footy! If your guests need a bed, they can simply retreat to a large studio room complete with a kitchenette and shower room - or is the ultimate teenager retreat?

5 Adey Road is a very special property. The accommodation is very comfortable, the position is a beauty, and the 1,068sqm of land is gold. A rare find indeed - what an opportunity!
