Over the past decade, Harrow Trust has provided vital support to some of the state’s most vulnerable groups.
Now, the registered non-profit – which provides supported accommodation for young people with intellectual disabilities – is hoping to attract support, rather than provide it.
The Adelaide-based charity is selling one of three newly built Torrens-addressed executive homes at 19 Flemington Street, Glenside, with all proceeds going towards helping more young people in need.

A spokesman for the charity said it encouraged house hunters to dig deep for a good cause when the property heads to auction next month.
“Proceeds from the sale will go towards providing more similar accommodation for people with intellectual disabilities such as that currently available at Harrow House (a purpose-built home providing high and low levels of disability support),” he said.
“We think the townhouse will be popular with people who want to put their children into Glenunga, Linden Park, Rose Park or one of the other nearby schools but we may also see some downsizers looking at it as it has space for an extra bedroom or two.”
Set on a 268 sqm plot, the two-storey townhouse embraces the latest interior design trends, starting with the warm oak parquet flooring that runs from the entrance to the open-plan rear living room.
The tandem double garage provides internal access via the ground floor, which also includes an open plan living, dining and kitchen area which connects to a covered outdoor area and low maintenance gardens.
Designed with both function and aesthetics in mind, the kitchen features high-end Smeg appliances, including a large six-burner gas stove, wall oven, and large pantry and appliance cabinetry.
Upstairs, the house offers a second living space and three spacious bedrooms, including a spacious master bedroom with mirrored robes and a luxurious en-suite bathroom.
There is also reverse cycle air conditioning throughout the house, while automated front gates provide plenty of privacy and security.
Steve Alexander, of Alexander Real Estate, who is facilitating the sale on behalf of Harrow Trust, said interest in the three-bedroom house had been positive so far.
The property is expected to attract bids in excess of $1.35 million at auction, an estimate in line with the current home price in the suburb, according to PropTrack.
“We opened our first store on Saturday and the response has been really good,” Mr Alexander said.
“The location of the home and school district and the fact that it is brand new and well built certainly makes it an attractive proposition for families.”
The property will be auctioned at 12.30pm on Friday 1 December.
