Woah! Aside from the occasional Iwanoff, we’ve never encountered such MCM love in a West Australian sales spiel before and rightly so, this all original slice of bush suburb Modernism (c.1963) has all the trademarks of pragmatic and considered design; an excellent example of progressive minds and accomplished craftsmanship from the mid-twentieth century. This is due to those behind it: the partnership of legendary Perth architect, Peter Overman and Corser homes a relationship akin to Ken Woolley with Pettit & Sevitt on the East Coast. Though a little tired and the pressure of development is unceasing, t’would be so nice to see this little one saved and repaired for we know the trajectory of this home’s aesthetic, environmental, financial and architectural value is all skyward.
