STEP back in time to this 1930s home with its Art Deco facade, curved forms, nautical elements, timber flooring and high ornate ceilings.
From large double gates at the street entrance, a winding driveway takes you to this piece of yesteryear that has been updated to suit modern living.
Inside, a formal dining room with original fireplace links with a formal lounge and opens to a terrace overlooking the impressive front gardens.
There is also a modern open-plan living/dining/|kitchen area designed to support the home’s original style.
The kitchen has an island bench, granite benchtops and custom-made cabinetry.
Double doors lead to a versatile space that could be a theatre, games or play room, depending on your needs.
A fabulous timber-panelled room with a fireplace could be used as an office or even an old-fashioned reading room.
The first floor houses the bedrooms.
The spacious master opens to its own curved balcony and has high, decorative ceilings, walk-in robe and renovated ensuite with double vanity unit.
Two of the four other bedrooms open to balconies. There are two more bathrooms on this floor.
A guest bedroom and bathroom are on the ground floor.
The home is on a 3638sq m block that selling agent Jody Fewster said was one of only five properties in Peppermint Grove on a block over 3600sq m.
The grounds are magnificent and include mature trees, a Japanese-style garden, terraced gardens, vegetable garden, tennis court and a lovely pool.
There is another freestanding residence on the property with a bedroom, ensuite, bathroom and kitchenette that would be ideal for a nanny, au pair or guests.
