IF you like old-world homes, you will love this grand Art Deco residence.
Built in the 1930s it has been well-maintained over the years and retains the charm of the era.
It has beautiful timber flooring, high ceilings with ornate finishes, high skirting boards, timber architraves, timber fretwork arches in the entry, fireplaces, picture rails and a veranda with columns spanning the front of the home.
There is a formal dining room and formal lounge divided by sliding glass doors.
Doors in the lounge room open to the veranda, while the dining room is linked to the bespoke kitchen with stone benchtops, timber cabinetry, island bench and walk-in pantry.
The kitchen flows through to an open-plan living/dining area that opens to a veranda and another living area that can be used as a library, music or theatre room.
This room opens to a courtyard
There are two bedrooms and a study along one side of the home, a central bathroom, and two bedrooms at the back of the home.
These bedrooms have their own ensuites, the master has a walk-in robe, and they both open to a third veranda leading to the backyard and an elevated alfresco area.
The home is on a 1315sq m block with landscaped gardens, opposite a small park and with rear access to a private park.
