LUSH resort-style grounds surround this century-old Ripponlea house, which is filled to the brim with Art Deco charm.
McGrath St Kilda’s Nicole Prime said the residence at 16 Glen Eira Rd had been “tastefully renovated” within the past decade, enhancing period details like domed ceilings, timber floors and open fireplaces.

The four-bedroom house is now up for grabs with $4.1-$4.5 million price hopes, making it the priciest pad listed on realestate.com.au in the small southeastern suburb.
Nestled among the old-world features are modern luxuries, including two bathrooms remodelled by the vendors, and a gourmet kitchen with Euro appliances and a butler’s pantry.
The large 1000sq m block has been landscaped by Lisa Ellis Gardens to feature loads of greenery, a solar- and gas-heated pool, an outdoor dining area and fire pit.
“You could put another house on the block, it’s so big,” Ms Prime said.
A second street frontage on Victoria Ave with access to a double garage completes the property.
It’s being sold via an expressions of interest campaign closing October 4.
