An iconic example of mid-century modernist architecture shines in an exclusive cul de sac, merely minutes from the Yarra River's bush environment. As featured in 1957 House and Garden magazine, this 1950's four-bedroom family residence was originally designed by architect Geoffrey Danne to link seamlessly with its natural surrounds. More recently garden designer Damon Fuhrer has further enhanced the sense of nature, creating a bold Australian themed landscape to envelope the house.
Wonderfully reflective of the period's new ideas of open plan living and use of glass- this unique multi-level home feels just as modern today as it did in the 1950's. This home fills with glorious natural light throughout the day while framing leafy outlooks in all directions. Recently updated while remaining true to its origins, the home's Gaggenau kitchen / dining space flows effortlessly outdoors to a private deck that is suited to entertaining, whilst a vast lounge with floating staircase is warmed by a feature open fireplace at its heart. Upstairs, a rumpus/landing area retains a sense of connection to downstairs that is conducive to family living.
Also upstairs, four generously proportioned bedrooms are each appointed with built-in robes - the master with a renovated ensuite that has been designed to match the second upstairs bathroom. Offering clever use of space, the home also features an oversized double carport, built-in storage, as well as hydronic heating, zoned split system heating and air conditioning and under-house storage that could readily become a workshop.
his is a unique urban position, barely five kilometres from the CBD and yet surrounded by natural bushland and teeming birdlife. Walk easily to Kew Junction shops, cafes, restaurants and bars as well as plenty of trams and buses along Studley Park Road ensuring that an impressive selection of elite private schools are all within easy reach.
