If you missed out on winning this West Lakes stunner in last year’s St John Christmas Home Lottery, you’re in luck.
With the winner opting to take the cash prize of $4.5m instead, the lakeside marvel at 66 Martin Court could now be yours, as St John Ambulance sell the property to support its volunteers with valuable lifesaving equipment and training.
The organisation has run several home lotteries in recent years and St John chief executive officer Mark Groote says the custom Samuel James Homes masterpiece is the pinnacle of design and functionality.
“There really is no other like it in Adelaide and on water right now,” he says.
“After acquiring the land, the brief to the builders was ‘make this the single best home you have ever designed and built’.
“And they’ve gone above and beyond all of our expectations to create something that is truly extraordinary and a work of art.”
The home offers some 482.6sq m of living space over its two levels and has four bedrooms, all set on the lift-accessible upper level – the master suite complete with a retreat, a private balcony, and a luxe ensuite with a feature bath.
On the lower level you’ll find a lounge room, a home theatre, a gallery and a light-filled kitchen, family and meals area offering uninterrupted lake views and opening to an entertainer’s terrace that offers access to the home’s sparkling inground pool.
“The design of the home was pure genius, with the emphasis on facilitating water views from most of the property,” Mr Groote says.
“With a bespoke wine display, a hidden study, an infinity-style pool, an elevator, enormous parents retreat, sun lounges, bespoke stonework and an internal fireplace, there’s a special surprise around every corner of the home.
“Plus, and possibly best of all, it comes with $200,000 in furniture, meaning you can simply move in and start living your best life.”
Given its scale, the home is perfect for families, retirees or anyone with a penchant for both lakeside living and grand entertaining, with Mr Groote saying the lucky buyer also gets the benefit of knowing their purchase will help keep South Australians safe.
“All sale proceeds go straight to St John Ambulance and support our volunteers with critical healthcare training, very expensive but necessary lifesaving equipment and ensure if, or when, we have our next State Emergency, St John volunteers are there ready to protect and save the lives of South Australians,” he says.
