Just like Gareth yesterday, Alice has seen better days, in fact she was once an ‘It Girl’, delivered unto a dynamic post war Melbourne by none other than Robin Boyd himself. Those optimistic times heralding exciting new concepts of considered housing and architecture ultimately gave in to a depressing regression of design, horrific volume builds and a dumbing down of everyone, and what was once the start of something special, sat quietly in the eastern suburbs and gathered cobwebs. However what goes around inevitably comes around and we are overjoyed by the benevolence of this agent, for it is a certainty that if this way listed pre – 2017 we wouldn’t even see a photo of this house, let alone a suggestion of renovation or an acknowledgment of the advancing MCM buyer’s market. Let us collectively confirm Michael’s instincts shall we, and see it go to a lover not a developer.
