Say “Hi” to Millie’s House – sustainable style in a cool bluestone rewrite on Osmond’s doorstep. Contact the agent for inspection by appointment.
Amongst a quiet laneway cluster of local heritage importance, new and old combine in an 1880s 4-bedroom cottage bending the rules with proudly sustainable, solar passive, and architectural design…
In a street named after Alexander Tolmer, SA’s Police Commissioner C1852, and home to Millie Thomas for some 80 years, today, #4 wears its Colonial past on its new, progressive and energy-efficient double-level sleeve.
With #6 also up for grabs, why not secure both? One for the parents, the kids, or as a high-end rental with healthy, light-filled living in mind…
#4 leads with a living room and study – each with open fires – preserving its raw cottage appeal despite no wall, ceiling, or floor avoiding a painstaking restoration; repurposed and complementary double aspect windows slicing through the 2 front bedroom solid boundary walls.
Next, the main bathroom is a mix of modern & salvaged style, before a glimpse of its original exterior brickwork breaks through to remind us where 1880 meets 2020.
The north-facing addition, architecturally designed by Scholz Vinell is a floating collision of rammed earth, louvres, double glazing and cedar sliding doors welcoming cross-ventilation and heat transfer via morning and afternoon courtyards and rear alfresco.
The open plan timber kitchen’s repurposed marble benchtop is a highlight, overlooking timber floors & twin courtyards where vines assess winter sun & summer shade.
Out back, a polished concrete alfresco covers a huge cellar and storeroom, the block bordered by a lawn, sun-tolerant plants and veggies, where home and gardens are fed by 40000L of pumped rainwater.
Upstairs finds 2 more bedrooms, one borrowing sky views and in a pivot, a floating robe wall awaits its custom design.
Bedroom 4 cantilevers above the secure carport, while each are given a private pass to the central bathroom in its unique, recycled chic…
