Village Real Estate Seddon agent Huss Saad said the timeless renovation and extension was done 10 years ago.
“It is a builder’s own home and he sourced materials you wouldn’t expect,” Mr Saad said.
“The timber features in the kitchen, bookshelves and cabinetry are blackheart sassafras that only grows in Tasmania and the Bolon vinyl flooring on the staircase is from Denmark.”
The original part of the house has been retained and updated to highlight the ceiling roses and fireplace.
A lounge room, three bedrooms, main bathroom and laundry are found at the front of the house before one step down connects to the extension.
“It goes from Art Deco to polished concrete and glass everywhere in just one step, it whacks you in the face,” Mr Saad said.
The extension features an open-plan space that takes in a white and timber kitchen, private dining area, study nook and lounge area.
Upstairs is the parents retreat with luxurious main bedroom, massive walk-in wardrobe, ensuite and study.
While the inside is impressive, so too is outside. A covered outdoor entertainment area has a fireplace and built-in barbecue and adjoins the inviting swimming pool.
