In a little Modern pocket of the otherwise Victorian-era suburb that is Footscray (check out number 8) indeed in perhaps in the most underrated street in the entire metro area, sits this home of a reportedly lovely couple, Don and Betty Watson, now for sale. Built in the 1960s with clear Modernist influences (if not architecturally designed) we could not ignore those square forms, floor-to-ceiling windows, nor the gleeful eccentricity of gold and tiger-print wallpaper, cooper range-hood and ground level sauna room. Be you rolling home from Laneway or the The Spring Carnival (depending in which bona fide Melbourne circles you mix) this residence is a rare inner-west, Mid-Century pad in an unparalelled spot.
