Stelanie Alexander, a highly respected Adelaide business woman, lists her stunning creation with leading Adelaide real estate company, Toop & Toop Hyde Park for $1.8 million.

Stelanie Alexander has a breadth of experience in the recruitment and allied industries, is well known for her unwavering commitment to the SA business community and has an exceptional reputation with candidates, ranging from people she placed 20+ years ago to current.

She commenced her career as a 15 year old receptionist at Direct Personnel and at age 24, she bought she bought the company and embarked on an expansion campaign which resulted in outstanding success for the company and Stelanie, being featured in Business Review Weekly's "Australia's Top 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies" for an unprecedented 9 consecutive years.

In 2007, Stelanie was the recipient of the Inaugural Recruitment Industry Outstanding Achievement Awards for Excellence. She has experienced outstanding success in the Recruitment Industry over a three-decade period.

From humble beginnings – Stelanie and two part-time staff, the business evolved to 65 full-time employees, 800 temps, with a turnover of $35 million pa. A highlight of her career was winning a contract to recruit shipboard crew for Disney Cruise Lines in Florida, USA.

Stelanie’s successes were documented in various publications and she’s received many awards for outstanding business achievements.

She has been an active participant on numerous industry and government committees in additional to the position of Deputy Chair of Business Enterprise Centre Board.

Recently, she left the world of recruitment to embark on other ventures, including her passion for interior design.

"Having a passion and interest in interior design for a number of years, I designed the property so I could showcase my ideas and various stylish clever design features," said Ms Alexander. "I'm currently working towards my Diploma in Interior Design," she said.

"In addition, entertaining is an absolute love of mine and the house was designed to have an all round relaxed feel to it," she said.

Listing agents Anthony Toop and Peter McMillan insist this property is "one of a kind", something you will want to see with your own eyes.

"Stelanie designed and created this magnificent home single handedly and is PASSIONATE about it," said Mr McMillan. "It is called “Belle Matiere”.

"I started building in 2001 when I found land (which was a former tennis court) that was released on Mitchell Street at Hyde Park," said Ms Alexander.

"It is absolutely fantastic being able to stroll to the King William Road shops, restaurants and cafes, as well as it being close to the city, major schools and shopping hubs."

"For my private Master Bedroom courtyard, was French inspired theme. The Western Australian Limestone was the inspiration for the Pierre de Ronsard which have been trained on a cable trellis and framed by Japanese Box hedging. A serene space complete with Greek Water feature Urn."

"The outlook from two of the bedrooms is onto an Asian inspired theme, with rock garden bed and black and stainless steel water feature," she said.

"The main entertainment inspiration was Mediterranean and features a sparking lap pool with a Versace Medusa Head in the centre of the pool, a wood fired oven with raised garden beds of beautiful box hedging and mature Duranta Erecta “Alba”, which attracts white butterflies."

There are many 'wow' factors of this outstanding property, but Ms Alexander has her stand outs. "Definitely the back area where the ultra modern kitchen meets the informal and formal living areas. This space looks onto the pool area and with the doors that open up to give you a resort style living experience."

"I believe she deserves all good things in her life, and find it an inspiration just to talk to her!!" Mr McMillan said.

Auction: 10 November, 2011 at 11.30am.
