This Art Deco beauty is poised to become one of Eaglemont’s most expensive homes.
The 1940s treasure at 2 Glen Drive, designed by acclaimed architect Walter Burley Griffin, has been transformed to blend the best of old and new.
Complete with modern features, it’s on the market with a $4.65-$5.1 million price guide.
Nelson Alexander, Ivanhoe, director Gordon Hope said the home backed onto a private reserve, only accessible to local residents.
“The top of Mt Eagle is a very illustrious part of the world,” Mr Hope said.
“It’s almost like a gated community, because not only do you have beautiful homes but also private parklands out the back for residents who own there.”
The 1971sq m property has its own impressive landscaped gardens, which include a pool, gym and views to the city.
The property was recognised as one of the top 50 renovations of its time by House and Garden magazine after a major renovation by a previous owner more than a decade ago.
Mr Hope said it was one of the most impressive properties in the area.
“The property has Art Deco curves at the front and then phenomenal modern angles and plenty of natural light,” he said.
A billiard room with theatre, modern kitchen, home office with library and three-car garage are among other drawcards.
CoreLogic shows the property would become the third most expensive home in Eaglemont, if it sells near the top end of the price guide.
The period gem is set to go under the hammer on March 28.
