Britten-Jones and Triguboff selling North Adelaide home

A stunning North Adelaide home on Jeffcott Street is up for sale and will have its first open this Saturday.

The property is owned by Piper Alderman managing partner Tony Britten-Jones and his partner Naomi Triguboff, an investment banker specialising in property.

The home at 121-123 Jeffcott Street sits on 1014 square metres and boasts four bedrooms – the main with his and her’s dressing room and luxurious ensuite, study, powder room, multiple living spaces and a great outdoor entertaining space overlooking the solar heated pool and landscaped gardens. There’s also a butler’s pantry and a unique wine storage facility.

“I am quite fastidious and the house is in perfect, move-in condition,” says Naomi who is an avid art collector. “Normally, in Adelaide, character homes are in desperate need of updating which is a very expensive and time-consuming exercise. It is rare to find a character home that has been completely renovated so that nothing needs to be done.

“This home is very unassuming from the outside but the rooms are very generous in size. It’s a lovely family home that we’ve really enjoyed.”


The couple has owned the property for eight years and are now looking to downsize in the same area.

It is being sold through Fox Real Estate agents Candy Bennett and Andrew Fox and is open for the first time tomorrow at 12.30pm. Offers close on Wednesday, November 14, at midday.


Fisher Street location a winner

A magnificent return verandah home in Fisher Street, Fullarton, with 31-metre street frontage over two allotments has just hit the market.

The four-bedroom home at 50A Fisher Street has multiple living areas, included a sunroom, formal dining and lounge room, plus pool and pool house.

Owners Sam and Caitlin Woods have lived in the home since 2009 but have outgrown it with their three children and are looking for a property with more land.

“One of the best things about this house is the location,” says Caitlin, a nurse. “It’s just so close to everything you need. And the pool is also fantastic right at the back door, and the water reflects up and twinkles on the roof.

“It will be hard to leave but we have lots of lovely memories that we will take with us.”

The home, which sits on a 1486 square metre block, is zoned for Glenunga International High School and Glen Osmond Primary School,

It will be open for the first time this weekend and expressions of interest can be directed to agent Matt Smith at Klemich Real Estate.


Quick sale in Collinswood but city market slow

A Collinswood home that was open to the market for the first time last Saturday, sold on Tuesday for $25,000 above reserve.

“The purchaser called me five minutes after it went online,” says agent Kirsty Davies from Fox Real Estate. “It just suited their needs as they have vintage cars and this property has a triple garage, triple carport, plus room for three more cars.

“It just shows that when people are clear and know what they want, they’ll grab it. But the market is generally taking a long time for things to sell.”

An example of that is a city apartment that Kirsty has had on the market since July. While there has been some interest in the two-bedroom abode, it has not sold so the price has just been dramatically reduced for immediate sale.

The vendor, who bought the Gilles Street property in 2016, had wanted $515,000, but the price has now been dropped to $469,000.

“There are so many apartments for sale in the city and so many new ones being built that it’s really had an impact,” Kirsty says. “This apartment is now priced for immediate sale and it’s a very good price. If it’s not sold in two weeks, it will come off the market.”

The property at Cassie Street, Collinswood.

Country life up for sale

If you are keen for an authentic country life, this could be your chance.

A beautiful home at 39 Beasley Road, Oakbank, set on 2.5 acres has just hit the market and has five bedrooms and two bathrooms, plus an extensive, established garden complete with sheep and vines.

Vendors Alex and Veronica Paull have lived at the property since 1992 and have renovated and extended it to double its original size.

“We like living in the country and this house has lovely views and it’s very relaxing to come home to,” says Alex, a retired scientist with the EPA .

“The sheep are just pets and our granddaughter loves the two sets of twin lambs that were born this year. The vines are a hobby and every couple of years when the fruit is good I make home brew, some of which is quite drinkable.

“I quite enjoy tending to all this but we are going into retirement so are looking for less to do and to travel more. I can see the time will come when this will all be too much.”

The picturesque home is being handled by Harris Real Estate. It will be open this weekend and auctioned on Wednesday, November 14, at 1.30pm.
