AU Historic North Adelaide mansion Harley Chambers and Coach House on Adelaide real estate market
Property Here - Monday, August 19, 2013
ONE of North Adelaide's most historic properties has gone on the market for the first time in 17 years.
Heritage-listed Harley Chambers and adjacent Coach House are expected to sell for more than $3 million, with more than 70 people inquiring about the mansion since it was listed for sale last month.
Vendor Lukas Weeks, of Jones Lang LaSalle, said the properties' sought after location, rarity and views had sparked buyers interest.
"We've seen owner-occupiers, residential and medical organisations looking at Harley Chambers and Coach House," Mr Weeks said.
Harley Chambers and Coach House are owned by Calvary Health Care Adelaide and used as a medical centre.
The organisation bought the property in October 1996.
Although both buildings were used as consulting rooms, Mr Weeks said they could be used as residential properties.
"Harley Chambers is such a grandeur property and the scarcity of these types on the market is what makes it so special," he said.
"Coach House is also special because of its history as a horse stables.
"I think the interest also comes from the proximity to Adelaide Oval, North Adelaide, the Riverbank precinct, the new RAH, universities and the city."
Harley Chambers, a three-storey mansion which fronts Palmer Place, was built circa 1901 and used as a home. Coach House, built in 1880, was used as stables before it was renovated and used as a house.
The properties sit on a 1405sq m block of land which has two entrances - one from Palmer Place and the other from Ward St.
Expressions of interest close on Thursday, August 29, at 5pm.
