At first glance, hardly touched since the original build. But check the details and you’ll find it has been ‘sensitively updated and expanded by designer Barbara Barry and Architect David Serrurier’. Look closely and you can probably see that, not least with the modern-era fixtures and fittings within.

But the overall look and feel seems faithful to the architect’s original vision, with the exposed beams, opal living space (which leads effortlessly into the outside space) and full length windows still very much key to this house. Very forward thinking for 1942.

Along with all that reception space, the house offers three bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms as part of the 3,443 sq. ft. of living space. If the main house isn’t enough, there’s also a guest house with two bedrooms, an office and a day spa, which is nice. Large pool too, as you probably guessed.

That price? $7,195,000, which would make it a tough call even with a Lotto win.
