CoreLogic records show they purchased the two-bedroom house in 2015 for $906,000. The transformed home now has a $1.2-$1.32 million price tag ahead of its October 21 auction.
Ms Ezra, who is expecting her second child, said that when they bought the brick house it was unliveable but had amazing bones.
“It was my opportunity to showcase and fulfil my own interior style,” she said.
“It’s modern meets Mediterranean. We imported handmade products from around the globe — Morocco, Mexico and Vietnam.”
A range of handmade items were imported from around the globe.
Tiles from Ms Ezra’s business Tiles of Ezra were used throughout.
The property features an eye-catching mix of period details and Mediterranean flair, including traditional corbels, bespoke brass sinks and Moroccan handmade tiles.
“It comes with years of me designing for people and then knowing what I want in my own home,” Ms Ezra said.
“We exposed the beautiful bones of the home and combined it with my aesthetic to make it glow.
“We wish we didn’t have to sell.”
The well-known designer’s handmade tile business, Tiles of Ezra, has attracted the likes of singer-songwriter Tina Arena and even a Princess of Saudi Arabia, who has purchased tiles for numerous projects.
The property will go under the hammer on October 21 and has $1.2-$1.32 million price hopes.
Biggin & Scott Elsternwick agent Daniel Ashton said the home would attract a range of buyers from downsizers to young couples.
“It almost feels like you have left Melbourne and gone to the Mediterranean,” Mr Ashton said.
“It’s an interesting style that she (Ms Ezra) loves and embodies. This house is really her in the form of bricks and mortar.”
Ms Ezra’s next project is a Spanish colonial home on a large block in Caulfield that she will transform into a unique family home.
