A rather astounding find in WA. An early (for Australia) and most certainly architect conceived foray into Modernist theory of design and construction. With a boldly experimental construction on a large sloped site featuring double story walls of glazing over the lower living area, step-up split level open kitchen/dining zone and then following up the metal detailed staircase and balcony to mezzanine sleeping quarters bringing to our minds more than a passing reminder of Boyd’s own Walsh Street home – with perhaps even that same rosy carpet (?!). In close to total original condition, seemingly empty and never before sold we can only marvel at the possible history and Modernist Australian narrative contained in this property. We dearly hope it can all be revealed before the mechanism of the market decides to move in and erase any trace of it.
