House for sale
3 Harrison Street,
4 2 3
COLLECTOR'S ITEMThis incredibly beautiful Art Deco inspired home is a rare find. Standing sentry above the beach at Marengo and overlooking the marine reserve to Mount’s Bay and Southern Ocean beyond, this Harrison Street residence is unique in its position and its design.
The architect of this home had an eye for detail like no other. It is essentially Art Deco, in the Frank Lloyd Wright style with genuine period features and modern twists, bringing in the best of both worlds. From the outside, the house looks majestic with its manicured front lawn, North facing frontage and huge verandahs, so step inside the genuinely 1920’s front door and you are in a light and lovely hallway that invites the eyes to look further.
Downstairs is a large drawing room with book cases built in reflection of the era and a huge open fire place. Through the French windows in this room you can see the waves crashing onto Marengo beach. This design of window is standard throughout the house adding light and beauty at every turn. The master bedroom is also on this level and includes a roomy walk-in wardrobe complete with ample shelving and a stylish en-suite. Down the hallway are three further light and airy bedrooms another bathroom and a cool court yard.
A walk up the sweeping staircase reveals a large family room that has an open plan dining area, kitchen area and sitting area all with the Art Deco finish.
A stroll out onto the verandah reveals a recessed barbecue area and spectacular views. With a nod to one of the most beautiful eras in design and yet taking into account the luxuries required of a house near the beach.
3, Harrison Street is a work of art in itself and there is only one like it in the world.
