This one-and-only has been under the watchful eye of a few locals and it’s now on the market. Built c.1958 by one Murray Lovell, it echos the aesthetic of Robin Boyd and gang who were busily designing such homes on the other side of town, such is the simple pavilion layout with walls of northern windows and segments of sensational feature brickwork. The rarity of this Mid-Century Modern home cannot be understated, with the Victorian Heritage Database declaring;
‘Aesthetically, it is significant as perhaps the only example of a postwar Modernist dwelling in Hobsons Bay.’ 
Indeed in a suburb known for its olde-timey housing stock and maritime vibes this lil’ darling is the only Mod in the village.
With this sale comes plans for a second story, apparently sympathetic to the existing design, though with 3 bedrooms and lovely eastern yard a spit away from the foreshore, we think it’s a perfect downsizer or small family home just as it is.
