If you’ve ever lusted after a slice of the Amalfi coastline without getting your passport stamped, then this Mediterranean-inspired Adelaide home might just be enough to get you there. Recently arriving on the market is 14 Delamere Avenue, Netherby, which is spectacular in its proportions and architecture, boasting just about everything you could want in luxurious family living.
The property sits on a sweeping 1,489m² block of land, with an equally palatial internal space that spans 933m². All counted, the home contains a total of six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and space for a trio of cars to be parked in the garage, with a lower level thoughtfully designed for entertaining, while the upper floor enjoys peace and privacy for the main bedrooms.
As you pull into 14 Delamere Avenue, Netherby, you’re greeted by stonework gates, manicured gardens and grand palm trees, before you arrive at the impressive carved wooden double front doors. Beyond the entrance foyer is the formal dining room, complete with inlaid parquet floorboards, a ceiling rose that frames the elegant chandelier and views straight out to the heated lap pool.
The property was constructed by its current owner in 2009 and it’s easy to see that expense hasn’t been spared when it comes to the details of the home. The large kitchen and everyday dining space feature a marble-topped bench that stretches several meters, while the entire room is lit by matching hanging pendant lights and huge amounts of natural light from the windows.
The kitchen also boasts a butler’s pantry and a modest living area, with double doors that open out to the alfresco kitchen and dining area outside. Immediately adjacent to the centrepiece pool, the outdoor dining and living space is protected from the elements while also feeling intimately within nature, flanked by more gardens on one side.
The ground level is divided by the pool, almost into a fork shape, and also contains the large home cinema, several offices that can also be used as bedrooms, the games room and two purpose-built wine storage areas. On the upper level, accessible either via the staircase or the lift, you’ll find another expansive landing gallery, as well as three double bedrooms and the master bedroom, all of which have their own ensuite bathrooms and walk-in robes.
It’s a rare property, both in its scale and its specific architectural achievement, offering a proper taste of a Mediterranean villa designed with a relaxing pool at its centre. Recently listed by Neale Realty in Adelaide, 14 Delamere Avenue, Netherby, is currently seeking expressions of interest above $5 million.
