Beaumaris Modern No 1 – 1953, but extended a lot

Original post 23 October 2019

The Eidlitz House, 1953, Hocking Warren & Associates; lovely, simple, very 50s, #skillionroofs, plywood, timber framed #windowwalls, but turns out not as original as it looks. The house was a rectangular #smallhomesservice thing, facing north, with a 60s extension one end, which has been extended again; but the whole kitchen area is a new extension too, but 50s style, with maybe reused cupboards. If it had been #heritagelisted I think it would have to have been done differently, but not much, maybe a separate roof to distinguish the extension, maybe diff materials. Great front garden with huge old succulents which came from another house nearby being dem.

This corner of the lounge the most original (through the fireplace had to be rebuilt)

The kids bedrooms looked pretty original
