Rare & Roomy Modernist Haven in the River Precinct
Built in 1963, this beautiful mid-century dual house, designed by Guilford Bell and Neil Clerehan, for a young family and grandparents, ‘Beddison/Swift house’ is offered for sale for the first time. In faultless condition, the property comprises a double storey and a single storey dwelling on one title and is a very fine example of bespoke building, with full height, French doors to both units and ample fine cabinetry.
The 655 sqm property (approx.) of soft native garden envelopes this sculptural organic-brick home staged in two distinct yet connected parts. Engaging with its environment on multiple levels in terms of access and aspects, this extensive family residence represents a remarkably unique opportunity to be only the 2nd owners and custodians of a significant piece of Australia’s architectural heritage. Flexible and functional with flowing simplicity, the rear two-level dwelling includes three bedrooms (park views), open-plan living and dining with French doors to garden, streamlined kitchen, immaculate bathroom and powder room. The front single-storey dwelling offers two bedrooms, living and dining areas, kitchen with gas stove, fabulous bathroom and laundry. Other attributes include gas heating, a-c, polished hardwood floors, in-built joinery, potter’s shed/laundry and triple carport. A rare opening of enormous versatility for an extended family, additional income or home office with scope to further update or capitalize on the site (STCA) close to grammar schools, Alphington/Ivanhoe shopping, train station, golf courses and river trails.
