New York meets Port Adelaide in this one-of-a-kind warehouse-style home
DON’T want to move to the country to enjoy an off-the-grid lifestyle? In this architecturally designed Port Adelaide home you won’t have to.
Custom-built by the 2017 MBA Environmental Homes award winners, SaltE-House – the three-level property at 11 Warrawee Dock features the latest in solar technology, including a rooftop solar PV and 8kw battery storage system.
There’s also a vehicle-to-house power interface and an electric vehicle charging point for the vendor’s sustainable car.
Marketed without a price guide by Ray White Port Adelaide, selling agent Nick Psarros says the property’s unique set-up is already fielding interest from buyers – near and far.
“We’ve been getting some good inquiries already and I expect good numbers at our first open tomorrow night,” he said.
“It’s certainly a unique property and would suit a buyer that wants something a little more edgy, and not only because it comes with off-the-grid living capabilities.”
With a striking timber facade and impressive artwork painted by Chilean muralist Inti Castro, this home certainly stands out in the crowd.
Overlooking the waterfront promenade, wharf and the docks of Port Adelaide, the home features up to three bedrooms and two bathrooms which, combined occupy the first two levels.
The main living zone is found on the top floor and comprises an open-plan family, dining and kitchen space with a gas log fireplace and balconies on either end.
But it is the multitude of features that make this home a standout from the crowd.
From custom-made barn doors and kitchen cabinets, to Modwood composite decking boards and essential power saving modes throughout, no cost was spared to ensure the home met the vendor’s high standards.
“The property could suit a wide range of people but I think it would be great for someone who wants to stand out from the crowd,” Mr Psarros says.
“Someone who is perhaps a little eccentric and wants a good investment.”
Situated 13km from Adelaide CBD, Port Adelaide has a median house price of $350,000, according to CoreLogic.
However this house is being market without a price guide and will presumably sell for several times this sum.
Either way, it’s a market to watch, according to Mr Psarros who says the suburb is quickly growing in demand and popularity.
“Port Adelaide is fast becoming a suburb of choice for those distinctive homeowners who want to live in a historic but very cosmopolitan area,” he says.
“It’s got some really good restaurants and bars and on a Friday and Saturday night, its now hard to find parking.
“So it’s very much a market to watch and this apartment captures what modern Port Adelaide is all about.”
