Bright purple walls, patchwork flooring and a bottle green exterior characterised this Rosewater house just two years ago – it’s hard to believe looking at it now.
An extensive renovation has completely transformed the rundown villa at 828 Torrens Road into a contemporary five-bedroom character home.
While its old-world charm has been retained, modern design trends have breathed new life into the 1910-built villa.
Ray White Port Adelaide principal Nick Psarros, who is marketing the property with Nathaniel Kennerdale, sold it to the current owners in February 2019 and was shocked at how much it had changed since then.
“I walked in there and I couldn’t recognise it,” he said.
“It was absolutely putrid when I walked in the first time, it had been let go.”
He said it was tired and dilapidated inside while the backyard was full of rubbish, but that didn’t deter the buyers.
