Architect Lucien De Vestel, designed in 1933, this studio house for the opera singer Armand Crabbé.

The style is Modernist, playing on contrasts between white walls and blackened oak cladding.

Rounded windows, portholes and tubular handrails are typical of the Streamline architecture very popular in the 30s.

The front door has a porthole adorned with pretty ironwork evoking music.

The house was recently well restored by its latest owners.
