Iconic 1970's architectural gem


An excellent example of 1970s architecture in pristine original condition. Lovers of 1970s homes will appreciate the signature design features of its era including a double-sided arched fireplace between the lounge and dining room, generous proportions and good storage, a large well laid out kitchen (even a big scullery), open servery to the dining room; plus, a second snug lounge or office off the wide tiled foyer.

Built in solid enduring materials, this home would respond wonderfully to an empathetic update that respects its heritage. Concrete floors under carpets could be polished, the dark jade green handbasin up-cycled in a modern bathroom. (The bathroom, shower room and toilet line up separately).

Discover yet another bonus in the two rooms behind the double carport, perfect for storing the recreational gear and for a home business office or a salon.

The conservatory faces foliage on the fringe of the 683 m² section which borders the entrance to the beautiful Rotary Park waterfront. Enjoy strolls with friends or the dog, swimming or taking out the kayak or paddleboard. Wrought iron gates and a semi tropical garden further reference this 1970s style which nods to the iconic architecture of Palm Springs. Trimming some trees in the back yard may also open up some of the views from the property.

Perfect for couples or families who are looking for a home with good bones and appreciate the unique features of this solidly built era. With a little TLC this could be your dream home just waiting for you to walk through the door.

A rare gem in a peaceful established neighbourhood.
