IT’S hard not to feel like a character in an episode of Poirot while walking around this art deco beauty in Bayswater.
Hopefully you won’t be the one accused of committing a dastardly crime, but if you do, you’ll probably still be admiring the gorgeous 1940s-style architecture while being led away in handcuffs.
The magic starts outside with a lovely art deco motif on the garage door and a curved verandah.
As you walk into the open plan living/dining/kitchen you could imagine Hastings summoning everyone to the lounge, where Poirot would reveal whodunnit.
With a golden palm in one corner, striking vintage floor tiles, thick blue drapes and period furniture it really does take the art deco experience to the max.
The theme is continued in the stunning kitchen, which has a bold black-and-white tile splashback and a gorgeous benchtop with a rounded end, giving off the air of a cruise ship.
There’s plenty of storage space, a breakfast bar and premium appliances, so making meals would be a joy in this stylish kitchen.
This home may only have one bathroom, but it’s one of the most stylish the Voice has ever seen with a 250-litre spa built into an art deco alcove, a period vanity with chrome fittings, vintage tiles, and translucent glass bricks on the wall, creating a a stylish design.
It’s even got music piped-in, so you can listen to your favourite songs while soaking in the tub.
It’s a fantastic bathroom and one that captures the essence of the home brilliantly.
The escape-from-reality feel is continued in the spacious garden where fairy lights are festooned over a large swathe of grass, with plenty of space for a patio setting, splash pool or alfresco.
After dinner head to the Hollywood-style theatre room, where plush drapes and a huge screen means you can enjoy David Suchet’s wax moustache in glorious 4K detail.
All three bedrooms are a decent size, without having quite the same art deco panache as the main living areas.
This home isn’t just stylish, it has green credentials with a northern orientated passive solar design, a large thermal mass floor, high R-value insulation and 3kW rooftop solar.
This home includes a 50sqm fully insulated garage/workshop, laundry and fully reticulated garden. Situated on a 678sqm block on Armada Street, you are just a five minute walk to the new Bayswater train station.
This glorious, one-off Bayswater home will attract a lot of attention from buyers.
