245 Carrington Street, Adelaide

Bluestone charm with an urban edge…

This one has more than Local Heritage Place value, it also claims the ultimate city position… settle into the heart-of-town's hive of activity in a character pocket bookended by uber-chic Hurtle Square and city-fringe Hutt Street.

Revel in its C.1880 period features such as original Baltic floors, open fireplace and pressed-tin ceilings to one of its two bedrooms, and a sprinkling of updates such as the gas fireplace to the formal sitting room, open plan eat-in kitchen and casual living, renovated bathroom, and bi-folding stacker doors to the open air alfresco…

But the character door is open to value-add in more ways than one (STCC) in this quaint two-bedroom marvel set to spike demand among investors targeting the executive rental market, buyers seeking a downsizer with potential, or a chic city weekender.

Bluestone row cottage charm will do it every time.

From the rear open plan addition where life in the city simmers away quietly, fold back the matt black stacker doors, socialise around the industrial-feel kitchen with stainless splashbacks, commercial-sized freestanding oven and more circling space than a cottage should give.

Then continue outdoors to the guest-friendly courtyard where brick-paving, private perimeter fencing, wisteria and grape vines lead to a quirky outdoor laundry-come-second bathroom.

Plumbed, tiled and functional, it's far better than an 1880's outhouse, and so it should be, doubling your wet area convenience while the party continues.

Or tweak it to suit (retaining its cute-as-a-button character) and elevate its washroom status…

But if midweek catch-ups or bar-hopping are more your style, step beyond your picket-fence to a host of tasting plates from pub fare to café dining on the city's south-western fringe.

Be festival ready, single minutes to the CBD, or a free city bus away from Adelaide's universities.
