That 70's House...

 I am also hoping to check out this super 70's house - no wait, I think we have to call it a 'pad' - at 31 Stanton Crescent, Rosanna (Jellis Craig). It looks pretty solid (understatement - much?) with a LOT of exposed brick and timber but there is something very cool about it I think. Perhaps it takes me back to the days when my parents would take my sister and I to visit their friends in Melbourne. Us country girls had never seen houses like these with their brick walls on the inside, the fernery courtyards and split level floor plans. Perhaps I just associate the 70's style house with being carried sleeping from the car! 
They do have a real warmth and handcrafted feel about them yet the spaces are large and lofty and light..... On the other hand, there is an awful lot of brown to eradicate!
