Brisvegans take note. Tonight we post up an beloved, architect designed home (c.1958), finally heading out of the hands of its original owners who built it. The family has alerted us to this sale (and provided a couple of sensational photos to boot – sunhat.want!) and we are more than keen to show you all. Perhaps we can help find a buyer, to cherish this 1959 beauty as it ought to be. C’mon gang – let’s do this!
**Update** Just a little extra joy to note –
“I spoke to dad this morning and he said the builder was Luxfords and it was a spec home. He thinks there were only two others by the same architect in Brisbane but he can’t remember the architect’s name, only that he was from Sydney. It was varnished wood( maritime varnish) which made it very different for the time.
The photo of mum in the hat was taken for House and Garden magazine.
Dad said a week after they bought it for £3200 the builder wanted to buy it back for £50 extra as an artist from Annerley was desperate to have it but they said no!”
