Built in the late 1930s, 'Lurra' is a fine example of Art Deco architecture with simple, streamlined, geometric designs especially evident in its façade. Located in popular Lower Sandy Bay, this three bedroom, two bathroom home near Alexandra Battery has become a well-known landmark due to its distinctive style. In a sought-after location, it is only a short drive from the Lower Sandy Bay village with its numerous facilities including cafés, pharmacy, IGA supermarket, and newsagency/post office; while another minute or two up the road is the popular fine food and café, Blac Fig. A short stroll from the shopping village is Long Beach with its easily accessible boardwalk around the bay to Long Point, and beyond to the sandy expanse of Nutgrove Beach. The recreation areas of Sandown Park, and the ever-popular children's playground, along with the Sandy Bay Sailing and Croquet Clubs are also close-by. Both private and public schools and daycare centres are easily accessible by car, on foot or via the regular bus service passing the door.

Originally a single-storey dwelling, the house was renovated in the 1990s, an upper level enabling views of the Derwent River. A recent renovation by the current owners has brought this 1930s home into the 21st Century. The polished Tasmanian oak flooring throughout the lower level combines with white, solid brick plastered walls, and original crenellated cornices creating a sleek, modern, warm atmosphere. Facing east, the living areas and upper bedrooms are bathed in sunshine throughout the morning, while the outdoor living area at the rear is an ideal space for alfresco living as the sun filters through the privacy of trees. Upstairs bedrooms are carpeted, while the bedroom on the lower level has floorboards. Both bedrooms on the upper level have water views, the primary bedroom having a spacious walk-in robe, an adjacent study area, and stylishly fitted, tiled bathroom. The bathroom on the lower level has been remodelled with the same emphasis on style and quality. The kitchen has also received elegant treatment with clean lines, high-end appliances, stone benchtops and a cleverly incorporated European laundry. A large living and dining area is adjacent to the kitchen, while a separate living zone provides an ideal space for individual TV preferences, a playroom, home office, or a quiet retreat from a busy family. There is off-street parking for three cars, and an attractively landscaped, low maintenance garden.
