Architect Designed Mid Century Modern Classic.
Situated directly across from the famous Gibbs Brothers Oval in one of the best streets in Merewether is this beautifully presented Pettit and Sevitt split level 1F residence designed by the award-winning Australian architect Ken Woolley AM. This beautiful mid-century modern [MCM] home is cleverly designed with an emphasis on inspired interiors that pop and oversized windows and doors that make for a seamless indoor/outdoor transition.
Nestled well back from the street and framed by an established native garden, this stylish residence that is as timeless now as it was when originally designed and built in the seventies. It provides an idyllic family sanctuary on a private 683sqm allotment. The high, raked ceilings and streams of light create an uplifting sense of space, while outside is the perfect setting for families who love to entertain. The home has been updated for today’s in/outdoor lifestyle and offers three inviting living spaces and several outdoor entertaining areas, plus a generous-sized and private backyard.

This level also has a fourth bedroom or home office with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the patio and facing Gibbs Brothers Oval, plus a generous laundry and separate toilet.
Moving into the mid-floor level you will appreciate the free flowing layout through the living areas and renovated kitchen.
