Another One!

Another Mid-Century home ear marked for development in Montmorency. When you look at the condition of the house inside - solid timber floors, ducted heating, fresh paintwork, modern kitchen - it makes me cringe that some people would send all of it to the scrapheap, to make money. This is not a sustainable future!

What the house could be with a little 'vision' perhaps? (Instead of 3 ugly townhouses).

A River Runs Through It

Sad to see this great home at 27 River Street Briar Hill advertised for land value only. It is on a large block but the house looks very solid and in good condition. Thanks Modernist Australia for bringing it to my attention.

Watsonia Retro

Pull out your floral aprons kids - this is one for lovers of the 1950's! I was quite excited to see this untouched retro gem at 15 Papua Street Watsonia. Apparently one loving owner has 'preserved' this cute-as-a-button home in original condition. Most encouraging to see a Real Estate Agent that gets the retro appeal too!
Neat as a Pin.

Retro Love!

Yes Bronte!

I was very excited to see the listing at 25 Bronte Street, Heidelberg last month as it was clear from the photos that this home had been put together by a lover of 'retro' and 'mid-century modernism'. Filled with brave colour and design that enhances the good 'bones' of the building, a fairly humble 50's weatherboard home has been elevated to a stand out property. Bravo owners!!
Fantastic Bold External Colour Scheme - Contemporary but also Enhances the existing Character of the Facade
Key Colour Red brought through to the living room.
and Kitchen - Lovely new plywood ceiling too!
Brave bathroom tiles! - Images courtesy Barry Plant Ivanhoe.

Not so Mellow Yellow

Regular readers will know that Yellow is one of my favourite colours. I found a series of great yellow kitchens back in January and recently I found another. Trawling the real estate pages as I tend to do, I couldn't help fall in love with this bright yellow kitchen at 57 Booyan Cresent, Greensborough. It's so cheerful! I hope the future new owners like it too.
