Here is a celebration of mid-century design! Initially designed in 1959 by the architect David Bell and built shortly after, this well engineered house stands as testimony to the architect and his love of mid-century modern design.
To a lover of this era of design, recreating this original home would be the only option they would want, others may look at the project and decide it is only ‘land’ on which they will build a new home.
Entering the home from the street level you are met by an expansive feature wall of Basalt stone, this creates an evocative first impression as you move toward the stunning feature glass entry. Once inside you’ll notice a large room that was used for family gatherings which has several utility rooms adjacent, but your main living space is on the upper level. Winding up the steel ‘hanging staircase’ you arrive in the main living area, this expansive room steps down to a lower area that takes advantage of the views through the wide plate glass windows, it also leads out to the balcony where you’ll spend time enjoying the river breezes, the views of the third tee at the golf course and across to Yeronga Corso.
The home is advantaged by close proximity to a range of elite private and public schools, the local shops at Hawken Village and is only metres to bike and walking trails that skirt the Brisbane River and the St Lucia Golf Links.
The home is to be viewed strictly by appointment only, please call Karen Mortland to arrange a time.
