With resort-style views and stunning architectural design, this five-bedroom property will make you feel like you are on a holiday every day.
A Burnside home blurs the boundary between outside and in and is set in one of the state’s most sought-after school zones.
The moment you enter 6 Slape Crescent, your gaze is drawn upwards.
The grand cathedral-style formal lounge features stunning atrium-style windows, which not only bring in the natural light, but beautifully frame the picturesque, lush green landscape and bring it inside.
Set on a lovingly maintained 1180sq m allotment, the sprawling five-bedroom, three-bathroom property is tucked away alongside tranquil First Creek.
Owner Rick Phillips, who bought the home in 2004, admitted the big, green views won him over the first time he set eyes on the property.
“You never really tire of the views. From the moment you wake up, it’s like you are in a resort,” Mr Phillips said.
“The high ceilings and the large, open spaces add to the ambience.”
If you thought a scorching summer day would make you like the ceiling-high windows a lot less, you are in for a pleasant surprise.
“Even when it’s 45 degrees outside, it’s really cool inside. The trees provide the prefect cover to the house,” Mr Phillips said.
The property also offers idyllic outdoor settings where you can relax under gently swaying palm trees while taking in the relaxing sounds of nature. The home also boasts an outdoor spa area.
If the outdoors are visually arresting, the architecture inside is equally dramatic.
Complementing the windows and adding a feeling of grandeur is a sweeping brass rail stairwell that leads up to the lavish master bedroom.
The views follow you here as well and the master suite is a stunner with ample room and treetop views. There’s also a luxurious ensuite along with a ‘his-and-hers’ dressing room.
“I have loved living here and I hope the new owners will love it as well,” Mr Phillips said.
Downstairs, the gourmet kitchen leads through to a spacious second lounge/family room and a separate dining area.
The guest bedroom features a walk-in robe and ensuite as well.
Apart from the fully paved outdoor entertaining area, there’s also a pergola on the property along with a double lock-up garage and off-street space for additional vehicles.
Brought to market by selling agent John Karras of Harcourts Magill, the property is set in one of Adelaide’s most enviable suburbs.
“It’s a lifestyle opportunity not to be missed,” Mr Karras says.
