It is quite astonishing how such a (albeit wonderful) refurb can secure the future of any domestic building. We have no doubt if this was a rundown, un-landscaped house, filed with the remnants of musty furniture and the pool emptied out – we’d see nothing but areal land size shots in the sales pitch. No talk of family friendly design, character, north facing backyards nor clever tri-access bathrooms though these attributes would always be present, regardless of actual condition. Once again the survival of our classic suburban MCM streetscapes comes down to an enlightened and generous few who can see beyond surface and, with a deft hand and creative eye, draw out the best of these homes educating others on their intrinsic beauty and value. Bravo people and keep it up!
