VILLA Mar­garet on Tam­borine Moun­tain was built in the 1930s to ex­ude the char­ac­ter of the art deco pe­riod.

The three-level res­i­dence re­tains many fea­tures of its near 90-year his­tory, in­clud­ing stained-glass win­dows, in­tri­cate cor­nices and crows ash tim­ber floor­ing.

The cur­rent own­ers bought the 1429sq m prop­erty in 2008 and ex­ten­sively re­stored it to blend mod­ern con­ve­niences with its his­toric charm. It’s now used as a lux­ury short-term hol­i­day re­treat.

With 180-de­gree views to the north, east and south, this moun­tain re­treat pro­vides an el­e­vated van­tage point to take in the Gold Coast, Hin­ter­land and ocean.

The com­mand­ing dou­ble brick and stone fa­cade stands out, as do the stone paths and gar­den walls. The kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art con­ve­niences, in­clud­ing a dou­ble-sided mar­ble is­land bench and Ital­ian tiled splash­back, mul­ti­ple wet ar­eas, wall oven and built-in Miele fridge-freezer.

The study on level two has been re­stored while level three has been ex­panded and trans­formed into a lux­ury mas­ter bed­room.

Har­courts Coastal Par­adise Point agents Steve Weir and James Weir are mar­ket­ing the prop­erty.

“It’s a unique piece of his­tory for the Gold Coast,” Steve said. “Ac­quir­ing this sub­lime home will en­sure you and your fam­ily en­joy the serene and so­phis­ti­cated life­style of­fered by this once-in-a-life­time prop­erty.”
