Every so often, a home comes onto the market that takes your breath away and the endless potential of this retro Stonyfell property does just that.
The home, at 23 Morland Ave, was among the top ten most viewed properties in SA on realestate.com.au for the past two weeks and for good reason, given it’s beautiful partly refurbished condition.
Ouwens Casserly Real Estate agent Mark Bressington said the home attracted 40 groups through the first open inspection last weekend with potential buyers loving the retro feel.
“They were loving the features, the openness and the fact you can grow with the place,” he said.
“It has a very natural feel, lots of trees and nature areas, lots of koalas and birdlife.”
The five-bedroom home has timber clad feature walls, a stone fireplace, large windows and is set on a spacious 861sqm block.

“It has four sets of french doors, a big deck at the back of it with big glass picture windows throughout,” Mr Bressington said.
“It’s very light and bright, it has good sized living spaces and bedrooms, downstairs has a big theatre room or another bedroom.”
Mr Bressington said the property’s $699,000 to $768,000 price guide was outstanding given the amount of space on offer.
“People are looking more for good sized yards, they don’t want to have that small block, they want room for the kids and a pool,” he said.
“It’s in that price bracket where it’s achievable.”
As retro homes continue to appear on the market, Mr Bressington said he had definitely noticed an increase in popularity, with many buyers in the market for a mid-century modern style property.
“These are solid brick homes, they have a lot more character to them,” he said.
“They’re totally different in respect to a new home and people love that.”
Located in the heart of Stonyfell, Mr Bressington said the location was a relatively affordable option for prestigious buyers looking to enter the eastern suburbs. Stonyfell’s median house price is $905,000 compared to neighbouring Erindale which has a median house price of $1.227 million, according to Corelogic.
“Most people go there and live there for 20 years,” he said.
“It has more of a community feel, beautiful parks and has easy access to Burnside and The Parade.”
The property features three bedrooms with built-in robes, plus a formal dining room and lower level rumpus as optional bedrooms.
The upper level also has a kitchen, meals and family area, which flows through to a large outdoor entertaining deck through two sets of french doors.
Zoned for Burnside Primary and Norwood Morialta High Schools, the home is also located just five minutes from Erindale and Wattle Park shopping centres.
Offers for the property will close by Monday, February 25 at 5pm.
