Majority of Rosslyn Park started off as open paddocks belonging to Dr Christopher Penfold, of Penfolds Wine. Dr Penfolds came over from England to purchase 500 acres of land in the Eastern Adelaide area in 1844. Today the area has transformed into a residential suburb situated approximately 6 kilometres east of the Adelaide central business district.
It’s no wonder the suburb is a popular choice amongst affluent home buyers, however, making such a large investment you’ll want to ensure you’re spending your money well. Detail Building Inspections offer pre-purchase inspections as well as pre-auction inspections to help you make the right decision no matter the sale type.
While there is a mix of old and new within the Rosslyn Park walls, the majority of the suburb is made up of stunning heritage homes. While these homes can be breathtakingly beautiful and filled with local history, these homes can also harbour a significant amount of hidden defects due to the lack of building standards in place at the time of build.
Heritage homes often are not constructed with protection against salt damp and can be prone to cracking which harms their structural integrity. However, at the time of sale owners can tend to do patch jobs to detract from issues that may lower the cost of their home. This is why investing in a pre-purchase or pre-auction building inspection is so important.
At Detail Building Inspections our team is experienced in dealing with a number of home styles, and have completed building inspections for many years. We know precisely what to look for throughout an inspection, and can pick up on a cover job every time, especially in a prestigious Eastern suburb such as Rosslyn Park.
The suburb is divided by Penfold Road into two very distinct areas. West of Penfold Road, the streets are characterised by broad, tree-lined roads and popular 20th-century architecture. Moving East of Penfold's road and you’ll find yourself much steeper towards the Adelaide Hills. This area of the suburb comprises of a mix of 20th-century architecture as well as very contemporary and modern builds. Part of the suburb's character is the remaining vegetation and grape vines that pay tribute to the area's heritage.
While the majority of the land in Rosslyn park is reserved solely for residential use, Penfolds Estate is a notable exception. With rows upon rows of grapevines surrounding Penfold Road, holds a tribute to the suburbs once agricultural focus.
The remarkable Magill Estate branch of Penfolds Winery is one to be admired. This stunning winery offers visitors cellar door sales, tours and delectable delights at the all award-winning Penfolds Magill Estate Restaurant, providing residents and visitors just a taste of Adelaide’s prestigious winemaking regions.
