Stanley Mews is a beautiful 2 bedroom cottage situated in the best leafy boulevard of North Adelaide. There are two bedrooms, one on a mezzanine level; a modern heritage styled bathroom; a bar kitchen overlooking living area with sofa bed .
Was bought, restored and added to North Adelaide Heritage Group collection in June 2001. Stanley Cottage was built in 1880. Historically this cottage together with a number of adjoining others were built as a philanthropic gesture by wealthy colonial benefactors (Names such as Elder, Barr Smith, Bonython, Simpson, Simms & Murray) only 37 years after the colony was founded. They were essentially for aged and poor widows.
Externally the cottage remains remarkably original, complemented to the west by cottages of similar scale & detailing. The extent and nature of these rows is reminiscent
of ‘Almshouses', such rows rarely found in South Australia.
Typical Twiss touches are used aesthetically as well as practically, such as a real wall mounted wooden propeller blade from a bi-plane, substantial collectors Tasmanian Huon
pine chest of eight drawers and robe, Ariston Hi-tech washer/dryer, large flat screen TV, a museum condition, 100 year old sea grass sun lounge, gilt mirrors and a selection of exciting large limited edition prints.
Lighting, both natural and artificial is superb at all times. Colouring is three shades of light creme which tones warmly with the highly polished Baltic floors.
