About this listing
Once in a lifetime a property comes along that perfectly evokes the era in which it was built. Architectural landscaper Ted Smyth worked collaboratively on this project along with skilled local builders and craftsman. Together they created a home that is an unspoiled example of an exciting period in Titirangi architecture.
Sitting in a prime position elevated and north facing, this 1960's modernist home commands attention. From the large section with lush native bush to the terraced back garden this house was built to make a statement. There are Group Architect influences at play, with a stunning stone feature wall in the lounge, high ceilings with exposed timber braces in the living areas and Japanese influences; including opaque screens in the kitchen and living. There are mosaics of varying hues of green stretching from the entrance way through to the kitchen floor, and into the lounge with recessed pops of colour delivering an exciting space.
Built in wrought iron shelving created by Len Hill still looks remarkably modern today. Large expanses of glass create dynamic spaces and a wonderful connection to the outdoors. Encompassing a sprawling 280sqm (more or less) and with five bedrooms, plus an office, master with ensuite and family bathroom and a large undeveloped basement area, the potential here is unmatched. In addition, this property comes with a stone studio which sits amongst the native bush, an ideal multipurpose space.
If you've always dreamed of discovering and restoring a rare piece of mid-century modern architecture, then this is a must see.
