East Side, West Side, Braeside

North facing entry - gorgeous...
I must confess I recently fell in love with this little number at 4 Braeside Avenue, Rosanna. MR and I thought we might have found our next mid century abode. Maybe it was time to move from West Side to Braeside... but after much deliberation, we decided its just a little on the teensy side and with a big dog and a little baby, well it would just be too much of a squeeze. If only stamp duty & agents fees weren't so high and we could buy & sell every 5 years!!  The current owners have given it a bit of a make-over, painting outside and in.  I thought it was a bit of shame they have painted the timber lining boards that feature in the living room (either side of fireplace), dining room and entry and also the timber framed glass doors between the entry and the living room, but its all very fresh and still retains all the great features that made it so 'Modern' when it was built in 1964. I'm sure the new owners will love living here! *sigh*

Hi-Loc Close Up

East Facing Window Wall on Locksley Street
Here's a close up of 'Hi-Loc Close' - Unit 3/101 Upper Heidelberg Road, Ivanhoe is currently up for sale and has some primo mid-century style - namely those fab East facing windows. Not sure if these apartments were designed by an architect of note? Great apartment in a premium suburb and location.

Updated Kitchen

Huge bedroom - Would get lovely morning sun!

Plenty River Potential

Hmmm, its always concerning yet intriguing when a property is described by agents as needing "a little bit of TLC and spring clean". Coupled with the lack of internal photos, I must say 45 Plenty River Drive, Greensborough has me curious!

Whole Lotta Keswick

The house on Keswick Glen
I think 8 Keswick Glen, Greensborough is the biggest 70's house I have ever seen...!
The window proportions are interesting, the bathrooms are generous in size and there is heaps of potential to update this home without loosing the 'texture' of the existing materials that make it so warm and familiar.

Timber lined ceilings - you know how I love 'em! Balustrade could do with some help..
Pretty awesome built in bed?
Huge bathroom! - All images courtesy Darren Jones Greensborough
