We speak to real-estate expert, Georgie Todd, about one of her favourite properties of 2019: 31 Joslin Street, Wayville.
What are some of the strongest aspects of the property?
It’s a modern family home that was recently revamped by the highly regarded Black Rabbit Architecture + Interiors. It has modern clean lines throughout and has enormous space for the whole family to grow. It has polished concrete floors downstairs with underfloor heating for year round comfort. Plus, plenty of storage and three bathrooms! It’s definitely one of my favourite properties I have had on the market this year. This home has a great balance between open plan living, privacy and beautiful natural light and tranquillity.
Why is Wayville a smart area to live in or invest in?
To me, the main draw-cards for Wayville are the proximity to the CBD, public transport on Goodwood Road, short walk to the tram, close proximity to the Parklands, and short walk to cafes and restaurants on King William and Goodwood Road. The area is lush with tree-lined streets and substantial homes, and it is zoned for the new Botanic High School, Adelaide High and is very close to some of Adelaide’s best private schools.
Is the area due to experience a spike in value?
I think the area is still undervalued in comparison to its neighbouring suburbs of Unley Park and Hyde Park. For a suburb on the fringe of the city with excellent public transport and café lifestyle, its value still has a way to go.
Completely bathed in natural light throughout, the home has a flexible floor-plan over two levels with formal and informal living. Downstairs there are two large separate living areas.
The house has up to 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The upstairs master suite is large with plenty of storage, an en-suite and a walk in wardrobe. The other two bedrooms upstairs are built-ins, and are serviced by their own bathroom.
Outside, there is a fully covered pavilion for year round entertaining that overlooks the landscaped gardens in a picturesque creek setting.
