St Peters Private Residence, SA
This 1890s Bluestone villa in St Peters was updated with a sophisticated renovation, giving the property a new sense of space.
Expansive indoor-outdoor living spaces, seamlessly connected and bathed in natural light… sounds like the description of a brand new home? Think again! This is an 1890s Bluestone villa, tucked away in the leafy Adelaide suburb of St Peters, updated for the new millennium through a sophisticated renovation. The opening up and extension of the rear of this Victorian-era home has given the property a new sense of space usually reserved for modern homes. Meanwhile, the street-facing façade retains its old-world charm as part of the distinctive villa and cottage streetscape of St Peters.
The rear additions have enabled the key living areas (kitchen, dining and lounge) to connect effortlessly to the alfresco barbeque and pool areas, culminating in an expansive entertaining space. Alspec’s Hawkesbury multi-fold doors, installed on all the external facing living areas, accentuate the full width openings by being configured to stack externally. When fully opened, they ensure the kitchen, living and dining spaces merge into one with the elegantly landscaped garden, barbeque and pool areas. For openable windows and fixed glazing, Murray Top Hung Awning Windows were selected, teamed with ecoFRAMEplus Centre Pocket Double Glazed Framing.
