Hello 2019! And while the lucky ones can get out and enjoy the smaller, quieter or more remote places in our lives we’re teaming with the theme and staying out of town for the next little while too. Today we find ourselves in the home of crater lakes and Dave Graney, the staunch little boarder town of Mount Gambier which has always punched above its Mid-Century weight (you can start at The Blue Lake Motel and work your way in) and this example of a classic AV Jennings project home ‘Glenbrook/Caprice’ by architect John Campbell (c.1963)* has all your Atomic Ranch aspirations at hand, including that sensational entry and room to spare out back. The price tag too – like most of our regional fare – is sweet relief.
Another lovely home we’ve had sitting in the wings for too long. This one has also seen a whiten-up inside but you cannot deny those striking lines, spaces and overall MCM flavoured brilliance on show.
**Update** Thanks to Steven at MCDA who has cited this as a version of the ‘Glenbrook/Caprice’ Project Home. Designed by John Campbell for AV Jennings Industries c. 1963.
