Wabi-sabi: the beauty of imperfection 11B Perseverance Road, Tea Tree Gully
House Sold - Tea Tree Gully SA
Imagine, tucked away on the very edge of Anstey Hill Recreation Park a magnificent parcel of land with panoramic views at its highest point, with a 90-year-old (or thereabouts!) home ripe for renovation and/or redevelopment (STCC). It is effectively invisible to traffic passing along Perseverance Road and has rear access to Ellis Street, arguably the best street in Tea Tree Gully.
The possibilities are only limited to the imagination with this property. One exciting possibility would be to keep the house that is already on the land and develop a truly spectacular family home or AirBnB get-away, given its historic interest as one of the oldest houses in the area and proximity to the village. As a 1930s inter-war era house it was built to last! Traditionally constructed with board formed concrete this technique is still visible on some walls and ceilings accentuating the timber imprint with a dramatic textured wall finish. With concrete walls up to 30cms thick (approx) throughout this ‘bunker’ it offers solidity and protection from the elements.
A central large hallway extends the length of the home leading to four main rooms of generous proportions with lofty pressed metal ceilings. With four fireplaces including the original and still functional Metters wood stove adding charm and character. The wooden floorboards have been painted white for that Pinterest artistic design aesthetic, sash windows and the original barn style doors are most definitely on trend as everything old is fashionable again! The country style kitchen captures sunsets and opens on to the wide verandah under the main roof encircling the house with parts enclosed to accommodate an al fresco, kitchen, bathroom, entry lobby, and a wine cellar. Enjoy the Mediterranean lifestyle with fruit and olive trees from your garden. You will have to be quick though as kangaroos, possums, koalas and other local wildlife like to share, at least the magpies and kookaburras will sing for their supper!
Another option is to live in the home as you develop the land in phases or simply remove the house and garage with mechanic’s pit all ready to accommodate future living opportunities which could maximise the panoramic views. Plans are available to peruse with possible subdivision options. With approx. 1487sqm of land there could be scope for 4 parcels of land to be. Alternatively, Keep the house and subdivide only part of the land. A new owner would need to follow up with Tea Tree Gully City Council to determine what the current rules will allow.
Situated where it is, this is a very rare piece of land right in the centre of historic Tea Tree Gully with elevated views across the Adelaide Plains to the Gulf. The museum, Gully Hotel and various eateries and coffee shops are just a brief walk away. The beauties of Anstey Hill Recreation Park including its mountain bike and hiking trails and the whole of the Adelaide Hills are just a backdrop to this opportunity. With schools, shopping centres, medical facilities within easy distance and the O-Bahn passing many times per day, plus sporting facilities and a vibrant local community, this is certainly an opportunity in a thousand and will suit a new family that owns it for decades to come.
