We speculate that the heat of a 27 degree overnight low with a 36 degree chaser in this house means stripping down, a wet face washer and lying under the fan, such is the old Aussie nostalgia seeping from every nook and wall. A far cry from the Sydney school or Robin Boyd this one still makes the cut, for just as we hold beach shacks to be truly Modern in their open plan living and unfussy floor plan, so we find it here. And who doesn’t need the cheer of those blue stripes or want to see such an intact collection of classic post-war furniture (and furnishings) in their native habitat, before they are snapped up by some Brissy hipsters or dropped off at the local Vinnies.
