In 1930, George Gavin Lawson - a renowned, forward-thinking architect from Edinburgh - had a vision to recreate the Dutch Colonial style foreign to South Australia at the time.
Today, amongst the suburban tranquility of The Common in Beaumont, his vision can be your slice of history to own - and what an epic slice it is!
Named Kirribilli, this heritage-listed masterpiece resembles the kind of grand elegance that will enchant forever and a day - inside and out.
Set back on your gargantuan 3000sqm block, the wide expanses of your manicured front yard partner the ivy-covered twin gables, Marseilles tiled roof, overhanging eaves and the sea of rendered masonry to deliver a front facade to behold.
Step inside the enchanting entry hall to be whisked away to another time and place, far away...
This stately, new world - drenched in dark Jarrah and blessed with the loftiest ceilings - implores you to explore every corridor, nook, cranny and expansive space in utter awe.
Amongst the 14 rooms in this epic adventure, find five massive bedrooms, a show-stopping billiard room and formal dining room - bask in the natural light that shines throughout and savour the five original fireplaces.
Keep moving - it seems there's always a new gem to uncover...
There's the kitchen with its massive butler's pantry; the study large and worthy enough be your sixth bedroom; the sunroom and the two verandahs overlooking the botanical gardens of your huge rear yard; and the dry cellar hiding conveniently underground.
And the 'maid's quarters' - a private wing privy to a sitting room, bedroom and bathroom that will all serve you well when guests come to stay and admire.
Because, no matter where you look, you can feel the prestige, history and exclusivity - a feeling that's rare to find and even rarer to own!
