“A MODERNIST DREAM”
Constructed in 1964 and following in the footsteps of classic modernist architecture with its clean design and flat lines, this four-bedroom home situated on an elevated 1,174m2 allotment was designed by renowned architect Peter Heathwood and embodies the final manifestation of the modern movement in the twentieth century.
Although the home was never formally named, to those who designed and built it, it was always known as 'Webster House', having been created for the daughter of the former Webster's Biscuit Factory.
A secure atrium-style covered foyer with two large skylights and small garden bed provide the perfect entrance to this home.
Internally, the modernist aesthetics continue with brick feature walls, original built-in timber cabinetry and exposed timber beams. With beautiful polished hardwood flooring and original seagrass wallpaper, the open plan living and dining area are afforded an abundance of natural light with clerestory windows and floor to ceiling glass. French doors lead out to a private courtyard with an open pergola roof and whimsical climbing vines.
The lengthy galley style kitchen provides an abundance of bench and storage space and ends in an informal meals area. From here, a covered deck provides easy access to the rear courtyard overlooking the sparkling in-ground pool and forest surrounds. Overgrown vegetation now hides an original treehouse and a once well-loved rainforest landscape laden with Monsteras and Staghorns.
Three of the four bedrooms are situated at the rear of the upper level, providing them with stunning treetop views. Each room is afforded a built-in wardrobe and has also been fitted with beautiful bespoke timber features. The master bedroom is air-conditioned.
The upstairs bathroom is neat and tidy with a shower over bath and separate toilet with skylight.
Down the internal staircase, a convenient powder room and enclosed shower service a spacious family room. In-built cabinetry with a sink add to the versatility of this space. A European-style laundry space is also situated on the ground floor.
A double lock-up garage with extra storage space completes this architectural, one of a kind property.
