Premium SAHOMES: All the latest luxuries at Kensington Gardens

This opulent owner-built home in one of Adelaide’s top suburbs is expected to fetch a high price.

Peter and Joanne Anargyros are no strangers to building luxury homes. The family has built a number of high-end homes around Adelaide, including luxury esplanade properties at Grange.

Their previous project at Kensington Gardens sold for more than $3 million last year.

Located in the same suburb at 29 Mahar Street and finished just weeks ago, their latest luxury home is also expected to fetch a premium price.

This masterpiece was project managed by Peter and Joanne’s son, Elias Anargyros, with Joanne overseeing the interior design.

On a 588-square-metre block, the owner-built home features three double bedrooms, two bathrooms and powder room, three living rooms and an outdoor entertaining area with north-facing swimming pool.

“Elias and Joanne primarily take the credit for all the design aspects of this home,” Peter says. “It was my son’s baby and he’s done a sterling job of this project.”

“Joanne is the interior design expert in both the overall design of the house itself and, importantly, supervising the fit-out. Elias worked with the architect on the design and spent a lot of his own time supervising the project during the build.”

Peter and Joanne created the home for themselves, but circumstances changed and a two-storey home was no longer practical for them. “Very late in the build, we took the position that it’s not going to work for us and we decided to sell this house,” Peter says.

As a result, the home features a personal touch with some well thought out design elements, including plenty of natural light thanks to large double-glazed windows at the front of the home.

“We went for double glazed windows across the entire front for thermal properties and noise insulation,” Peter says. The commercial grade aluminium windows were installed by South Pacific Aluminium Windows and Doors.

The kitchen servery is another personal touch, connecting the benchtop to the dining area, and creating a large area of display cabinetry for fine cutlery and glassware.

Marble splashbacks in the kitchen and barbecue area, as well as marble benchtops, were supplied by Alano Stone. Large marble tiles in the showers, porcelain floor tiles and porcelain granite composite pavers came from Adelaide Marble.

Storage is well catered for, from the five-metre long linen press to the kitchen cupboards that disguise a walk-in pantry. Peter praises Gawler Custom Kitchens for the extensive joinery throughout the home. The double garage also features storage cupboards.

The living area can be easily opened to the alfresco courtyard to create one large space. “The dining room, lounge room, alfresco area and kitchen becomes one huge entertaining area. You could probably squeeze 100 people into that area,” Peter says.

Modern features include a 6.6kW solar system, alarm and automated sprinkler system, while the 9.6m pool is salt chlorinated, solar heated and self-levelling.

“We’re extremely happy with the end result,” Peter says.

The sale is being handled by Peter and Eloise McMillan at Toop&Toop.
