There were only a ‘handful’ of terrace residences built in Adelaide in the late 1800’s, and fewer still with architectural detail as evidenced in tightly held Bohm Terrace.
Having lived in, and specialized in North Adelaide for over 30 years I can tell you that these homes come on the market rarely. This one is only available as a consequence of an interstate move and has been owned by my client for 16 years.
The residence has excellent ‘bones’ with the opportunity to add significant value with minor refinement, paint and polish (think polished floor boards, white walls/ceilings, plantation shutters etc!). There are 2 grand formal rooms at the front of the property downstairs – both with marble fireplaces and the formal living room with feature bay window.
An extremely functional kitchen includes Gaggenau and Miele appliances, and is open plan to a lovely North facing (rare) family living/dining space with bay window (paint out the woodwork in white / new timber floor and what a room!)
A pretty walled courtyard garden can be further developed and leads to secure undercover parking for up to 3 cars (end on end) – rare for North Adelaide. There is a small cellar too!
Upstairs the bathroom has been recently upgraded (very nice/neutral tonings) including a bath, double sink, and frameless shower screen.
There are 3 bedrooms (or 2 plus study/den) the master with a full wall of built-in-robes and easy access to the balcony from BR3/Den.
Walk anywhere from here – Cibo on O’Connell street is 2-3 minutes away, as is Foodland, Goodlife Health Club, etc. You can walk into the city in 10/15 mins.
The last one of these sold for $1.55m (Sep 2011) – opportunity knocks!
Price guide: $1.225m – $1.275m
Highly recommended – call now to view.
Historical data – “Bohm Terrace is a fine example of ‘boom-era’ residential development in North Adelaide. Archer Street is recognized as one of only two Adelaide streets with a significant terrace housing street-scape.
These terrace houses were designed to attract wealthy tenants who were keen to find suitable accommodation at a prime residential address. The terrace was built for F.W.A. Bohm in 1882. On 16th March 1883 the following advertisement was placed in the South Australian register:
To Let, three superior HOUSES in Bohm Terrace, Archer Street, N.A., finished and fitted up in the most approved style; gas laid on; also connections with the sewers. For terms and other particulars apply to Evans and Evans, Architects, Beaconsfield Building; or Dover Castle, North Adelaide.”
