Ascot's Lancaster, which exudes all the elegance and luxury of Brisbane's bygone art deco era, has been listed for June 1 auction.

It was designed by celebrated architect Charles H. Griffin for its 825 square metre Kitchener Road block in 1938.

He suggested his homes conveyed a “feeling of solidity” which he felt was missing from Queenslander-style homes.

Griffin was famous at the time for designing homes with a trademark cream textured finish above a red brick base and red Wunderlich roof tiles.

Set behind wrought iron front entrance gates, the home's interiors which include cornices, double French doors, leadlight windows and crystal chandeliers.

Ray White New Farm agent Christine Rudolph said the four bedroom home has been meticulously cared for by its vendors for almost two decades, chartered accountants Carmela and Paul Balbuziente, who are downsizing to be close to the water.
