Let’s face it. Living at the beach is a bucket list item for most people. Whether it’s buying a holiday home with ocean views, ditching the suburban house and all its maintenance for an easier lifestyle, retiring within stone’s throw of the water, or bringing the family up next to the sea and the sand, SA’s coastline has always been appealing.
If you’ve ever tried to buy at the beach though, you’ll know that not many people are selling, and even less are developing. So when a brand new property pops up in the sought after location of Glenelg, it’s a hot ticket for those who are after the finer things in life.
When it’s a Penthouse alternative without the corporate fees and pet restrictions, it’s another step closer to the dream home ideal.
Well this month, Lang and Oxford have brought luxury beachside living a step closer for one lucky buyer after releasing a brand new, Torrens titled, state of the art designed and built 3-level Glenelg home onto the market.
Just metres from the South Esplanade and with views of the ocean, 12a Kent Street is modern masterpiece with three large bedrooms, three bathrooms, light filled living spaces and contemporary, calming neutral tones throughout.
The ground floor incorporates an open plan kitchen and living room, lounge and laundry/powder room.
All the home’s bedrooms are located on the second floor with the sizable master bedroom incorporating a private balcony, ensuite bathroom and generous walk-in robe. Both the secondary bedrooms feature built-in robes.
The second floor comprises a separate study and a further bathroom with floor to ceiling Italian tiles and a frameless glass shower screen.
The work of Progetto Architects, the home has been cleverly designed to maximise space and the lifestyle of the owner with an internal lift and a solid American Oak staircase through the home’s core leading to a European style rooftop garden among the innovative features.
The Rooftop Garden provides the ideal environment for entertaining friends on warm summer nights, while the ground floor central courtyard offers an outdoor kitchen complete with a stainless steel BBQ and benchtops, sink and provision for a fridge.
12a Kent Street also has a further courtyard garden on the ground floor level. Rear access to the home comes via a two-car, remote control side by side garage which leads directly into the laundry and through into the main living areas.
The finishes and inclusions throughout the home are exemplary with a top of the range JAG kitchen complete with Smartstone benchtops and splashbacks, island bench, and Miele appliances.
Comfort and warmth have been key considerations in the design of the home, and this is reflected in the European Oak Timber Flooring, Australian pure wool carpets, reverse cycle ducted air conditioning and underfloor heating in the upstairs bathrooms.
Other features include a ducted vacuum system, digital surveillance cameras and security system, and LED video intercoms on all levels.
This luxurious ready to move in home offers architectural design and the highest standards of design and build quality with nothing more to do except adding the owner’s personal touches and personality.
