16 Gayer Ave, Wangaratta VIC

Many of you were enthralled by ‘Clayton House’ in Melbourne a few days ago; its smooth, fuss-free expanses of brick, timber ceilings and walls of windows exuding a calm and considered set of Modernist spaces in which to reside. Well, for a lot less cash and a larger regional move we see its echo in this sensational one acre patch in Wangaratta. This (c.1980) late Modern, architect designed home of generous and free-flowing rooms with some of the most pristine cork, tile and timber we’ve ever laid eyes on is sitting empty and waiting as a result of an estate finalisation. We are presently to receive the full details from the agent, but obviously you’re getting a lot of high-steppin’ home for not much outlay if decentralisation is something you can manage. Simply beautiful.

Despite the whatever photos, this rural agent does a bang up job of selling what we have here ‘interesting’ indeed! A formal Modernist design and concrete block construction, plopped into the dust of country Victoria. Take it from us it’s these in inexplicable and unsung, architecturally spot-on gems which give and give forever. Without a doubt this is one of the enduring hip pads of Wang and at a suitably country town price.

Location scouts take note – should you so desire an unmitigated slice of yesteryear, a bona fide set piece of 60s Australian life then here you go. As a home hunter of the more ‘retro’ persuasion there is so much to love and nurture within the main residence (butterfly roof- hey!) but it’s that shot of the bungalow and backyard which is really getting to us. A melancholy tug of the antipodean, Mid-Century suburban lull and it’s as if Jasper Jones or Dolly Pickles may be loitering just out of shot. But we digress. If you’re thinking a relocation in Wang is on the cards, then we don’t think you’d find anything sweeter for 235k (yep, that’s not a typo).
