Renovate and restore this attractive Californian Bungalow or build your new home (STCA) in a family-focused location. Nestled on 747 sqm approx, behind the perfectly preserved Californian Bungalow facade, sits a Mid-century Modern marvel awaiting its next chapter. Owned and tastefully transformed by talented architect and industrious craftsman, Lindsay Anderson as a labour of love, this family home is full of originality and personality.
Welcomed by an impressive porch and double-door entry foyer with splendid wood panelling, this long-held family home was extensively renovated in the 60’s and 70’s. Typical of the Modernist era, the home features expansive natural timber wall treatments and full-height windows that capture light, air and leafy garden vistas at every opportunity. The home is a stunning example of thoughtful design with practical function, and seamlessly merges Modernist style with the charming character and layout of a Californian Bungalow.
