A big SOS in the sky has been sent up by Baumaris Modern for an exceptional, unsullied gem whihc is on the market and in the crosshairs of developers with dollar signs in their eyes. This beautifully simple, perfectly orientated, super clean-lined residence designed by Beauie local (and notable architect) Charles Bricknell* was built c.1958 and absolutely deserves a second shot at life for a small family ,or couple, or single who loves guests. As Beaumaris Modern attest:

“Perfectly sited on the block, the large north facing living and dining room was flooded with warm winter sun with an outlook to a delightful private garden……… It is beautifully designed, with living areas facing north to a large garden. The house has a central core with bathrooms, laundry and kitchen. The three bedrooms face the front garden. The house features full height windows, timber panelling, original ‘Beco’ light fittings, a double sided open fireplace, hardwood floors in perfect condition (under the carpet) and a carefully considered floor plan.”
