Ol’ mate Tom here is so excited to extoll the virtues of the nearby shopping centre (as we suppose the opening of yet another Chemist Warehouse, banal nail salon and enlarged Kmart full of trinketry is what makes life worth living) that he affords this home only the most perfunctory of attention. Not surprising. We however cannot get over the heightened Mid-Century gorgeousness of this, albeit rundown, all original building and its potential to become a home of distinct beauty and character. It requires grit, time, money and some expert advice (which may be gleaned from looking up our new Rolodex!) but in the end the rewards for preserving that lovely brick hearth, stunning double door entry, walls of windows and jaunty roofline would be worth it all and more. This home has lines and a look that cannot and will not be replicated today, let’s hope someone can recognise this and snap it up in time.
**Update** MCDA (now on our Rolodex) has come through with some design answers here – this is strongly suspected to be a c.1955 Age RVIA Small Homes Service plan (The T362- as pictured) by none other than Neil Clerehan himself. How great to see such example still knocking around in Queensland of all place!
