House of the week: Bold and fabulous Italian style property

For the first time offered in over 30 years, this palatial 3 storey home is worth a look.

Built in 1985, this is an immaculate example of bold Italian style.

Situated on one of the highest points of Fairfield West with views to the City and surrounding areas, this residence exemplifies all the classic features of the period.

Of double brick and concrete slab construction, this property features an impressive floor plan and high ceilings, with many other quality features not offered in today’s newer homes. The home is designed to optimize light, air, space and storage.

The 5 bedroom home also features a custom designed marble stairway which adds to the retro-cool factor while the huge billiard/rumpus room with cocktail bar is reminiscent of a time when entertaining was done right.
