As the days draw closer to summer, it’s homes like this which start coming into their own. Dripping with the romance of Mid-Century bayside Melbourne which, before the arrival of money and it’s decline into tracts of nouveau mansions, was a bohemian adventure in beach and tea-tree (or is that Moonah?) settlement. In the 40s/50s/60s houses reclaimed the dunes and farmland originating from those with large minds, small pockets, independent spirits and limited resources with results like this – intimate, thoughtful and modest places for elemental living. Light, breeze and the flexibility of space – all blasts of a new refreshing clarity in a country pulling away from it’s stodgy, English past. And all in all, those which remain, are just too dreamy for words.

Thanks to MCDA for discovering the name.
