Steel Yourself

On the market for just a brief period of time, this cracking house at 292 Lower heidelberg Road, Ivanhoe East recently sold (for over $1,000,000!!). The architecture is credited to John Timlock c.1961. Not familiar with his work and Google is not giving me any leads on him. Pretty conservative externally I guess - not exactly ground breaking for the 60's but it certainly has charm and mid-century character.
 Regrettably, I didn't get a chance to check it out while it was open for inspection. I would have loved to have seen the original 'American Steel' kitchen and that sleek brick fireplace.
Love a kitchen up on legs and a sink with an angled fascia. They don't make 'em like this anymore!
