This luxury 1890’s New England blue brick residence exudes style, charm and quality throughout. It is situated one block to the city centre on a substantial manicured block of approximately 2,366 m2. Originally built as stables for James Miller’s “Kapunda” estate, 148 Dangar St was part of what was described in 1891 as “one of the most complete private residences in town”, with the stables planned by James White described as “very comfortable quarters” for racehorses. The building was remodelled as a four bedroom residence after 1900, with further renovations in the 1990s.
The residence has an inviting entrance verandah and a grand foyer with beautiful Oregon & Hoop Pine joinery plus a distinctive staircase. Either side of the foyer are sitting rooms, one is a larger formal space with a wood burning heater and the other a more intimate, cosy room with gas heating. There is a spacious bedroom on the ground level as well an impressive bathroom with marble tiles. The state-of-the art kitchen offers more than any chef could ever dream of, including solid stone benchtops, generous size oven and gas cooktop, dishwasher and double sink – all opening to the north facing entertaining deck. Adjacent to the kitchen are the informal living and dining areas, with a large wood heater. Privacy is ensured by tall hedging, motorised blinds and plantation shutters.
Upstairs, there are 3 further bedrooms and a gorgeous family bathroom with claw foot tub and heater. The master bedroom is lavish and offers a his & hers sympathetically designed walk-in robe and its own sitting area with a picturesque view over the formal front garden.

The property is beautifully landscaped and features include extensive terracing, hedging, lawns and an apple and stone fruit grove with automated in-ground watering. There is a charming brick out-building that is currently being used as a large garage and workshop plus an additional carport.

This stunning residence has immense appeal to those who have an appreciation of period architecture and luxury interiors. Amenities includee split system heating and cooling throughout, on-demand gas hot water, NBN fibre to the house and back to base security.

For those who want more – the sale, which is not subject to heritage orders, includes approved plans for a carefully designed luxury extension to the dwelling.
