“You will love this really magnificent home with its wide sweeping design… Superb construction and finish… and ultra-modern styling. Here’s cool and gracious family living at its best, in a delightfully different home you will be proud to call your own”. These opening words from the 1964 brochure of Mater Prize Home No.22, perfectly described this architecturally designed Tarragindi lottery home that displayed features well ahead of its time.
Heritage listed in 2019, 345 Marshall Road was designed and built by Architect John Dawson and builder Les Smith in 1964 as part of the Mater Prize Home Art Union. In almost complete original condition, it is now like stepping into a time capsule. After some necessary improvements such as split system air-conditioning in the living room and updates to bathroom to meet the needs of our 21st century lifestyle, the 4-bedroom retro home is now on the market for the first time in 38 years.
The very generous living room features the original built-in sofa lounge and a huge span of vinyl windows, allowing for saturation of natural light into the home. The massive kitchen reflects the trends of the time and showcases classic cabinetry of the era, cupboard space in abundance, a 4-burner gas cooktop and room for a meals area. A large formal dining room adjacent the kitchen features a servery window, a modern feature to homes of this time, and for an afternoon of entertaining, enjoy the peaceful, private patio to the rear of the home.
Four spacious bedrooms are all complete with built-in-wardrobes, including the master bedroom which also features a charming built-in mirrored dresser. Additional to the bedrooms is a large sunroom that opens to another outdoor living space. This patio would be the perfect place for an outdoor lounge to relax with your morning coffee and a book. The uniquely designed home features a rarely seen yet convenient, separate shower room, separate bathroom and separate toilet. The double lock up garage, which is still fitted with the original retro door is home to a workshop space, huge laundry and an additional shower and toilet.
This classic home sits on a 787m2 parcel of elevated land allowing for cool breeze to flow throughout the home. Displaying bold colours and design trends that dominated the years of the 60’s, this is certainly a property that will be appreciated by the retro lovers looking to buy a piece of history. Buyers looking for a uniquely designed home of generous proportion to renovate, will love the gorgeous hardwood flooring concealed under the original carpets, a sure glimpse of what this historical home could become.
