This 1937 Art Deco 2 bedroomed bungalow was extensively renovated and extended both to the back and with the addition of a 1st floor to the back of the property to allow for a growing family and the owner's design practice.
It's now a modern energy efficient and light filled home while still maintaining the heritage characteristics.
It has won a Building design and Conservation award in June this year from the City of Vincent (council where the house is located).
Enjoy the visit, it sure was a dream home! Hope you don't mind the photo overload!
|At the front of the house a corner of the garden is taken up by a tiny pool (to the left) and a small play area for the kids|

I loved the living area to the back of the back which opens up to the garden/outdoor living area in summer or can be closed with the glass doors in winter making it a cosy living area.
Hope you enjoyed the house tour too.
