Over the past 19 years, this beautiful art deco-inspired masterpiece has been filled with the beautiful memories of its owners.
“Our home has been the central location of numerous extended family gatherings and many casual meals with friends,” owner Dennis Banks said.
“Summertime is our favourite time to entertain, where we open the double doors of the dining area out to the raised deck.
“The ground floor is used by the younger generation, who move between the swimming pool and the games room.”
The residence, just 100m from the river’s edge on a 789sq m block, will appeal to buyers who love original 1950s features such as timber floorboards, Bakelite door handles and Vitrolite glass.
But it is the upside-down floor plan that will impress as it takes full advantage of the elevated position.
The first floor has free-flowing main living areas, as well as the master suite.
The first room off the main staircase landing is the massive formal living room, which extends out to the balcony.
It also flows easily into the library/piano room and out to the casual dining, sitting and kitchen space.
This open-plan family room is home to those hard-to-beat views of the river and beyond and expands into a quadrant-shaped outdoor entertaining area via double glass doors.
The master bedroom, with dressing room and ensuite, is tucked away to the left of the landing and is close to the fitted study, a storeroom and a guest toilet.
