Six of the best Art Deco properties on the market right now

With sleek curves, superb symmetry, and bold geometric designs, Art Deco remains one of the most popular architectural design trends among buyers today.

So beloved is the style that even 100 years after Art Deco roared onto the scene in the 1920s, homes are usually snatched off the market just as quickly as they’re listed.

“Art Deco is always a huge selling point,” Joanna Marek, principal of Marek Realty in Noosaville, said.

“People love the charming period features and the heritage association that comes with a lot of Art Deco properties. Buyers will often pay much more for them.”

Edward De Simone of De Simone Design in Sydney’s eastern suburbs – an area home to many of Australia’s Art Deco architecture – said it’s a design that will never go out of fashion.

“We all identify with this exciting style because it’s all around us,” Mr De Simone said.

“So many iconic buildings and apartment blocks here in Sydney are from that period, so it’s only natural we should feel a strong connection with it.”

Mr De Simone said the classic style also lends itself well to contemporary renovations – another possible cause of its enduring appeal among buyers.

Whether buyers are looking for a dream family home, a hip inner-city pad, or a lucrative investment opportunity, there several exceptional Art Deco homes currently on the market.
