A super cozy stunner today by fan favourite architect Geoffrey Woodfall. We see here his recurring use of brick, glazing and dark timbers (though some beams have now been painted white) to create an earthy, heavy-set oasis comparable to an earlier residence of his we listed in Mont Albert. This one built in 1970 also has some extra notes of beauty typical to the time which have been preserved and now find themselves appreciated anew (hooray!) including that striking terracotta floor tile pattern, Japanese influenced kitchen tile and copper kitchen bulkhead – an inspiring solution for the tricky business of exhaust hiding. All in all a gorgeous home of simple joy with nothing to do but move in.
