Today (based on some intel from locals) we were very concerned this elegant and historic (and protected) home was about to be surreptitiously demolished. Based on Melbourne’s recent history of such, it is not an unnatural fear for any MCM tragics to jump directly to panic stations at the first sign of cyclone fencing and a demolition notice.
However, we were wrong.
Having now been contacted by the owner it seems that there is a renovation planned, one which has thoughtfully been devised for the last couple of years, suggesting no evil doings but rather a considered enhancement of this home, within its heritage bounds.
And really all in all (although egg on our faces) this really is a Scooby-Doo ending for Australian Modernism in its native suburban surrounds. We offer our best wishes to the owners and to the future, further assured, of this wonderful residence.
