The late Peter Beaven defied most labels and this distinctive property is an excellent example of his non-conformist work. One of his final projects, it has a raw industrial appearance built in a resilient blend of concrete, bluestone and copper. Over 400sqm inside, it is a house to startle and thrill, nothing ordinary here! The floorplan offers an abundance of spaces for both living and sleeping, with bathrooms to keep mornings running like clockwork. All north facing, sun and light streams into every room. This is an exciting house which must be ‘experienced’! Triple garaging at basement level wastes nothing of the 555sqm of prime Merivale land allowing good usable outdoor living flowing seamlessly to the garden. Right in the heart of ‘true’ Merivale proximity to our most popular schools allows choices for families. Our current owners have remediated foundations and infrastructure and freshened interior décor and are commited to their next project.
