WA has remained rather quiet in the last year and we suspect now the boom times are over it may be safer for untouched brilliance like this c.1960, architect’s* own stun-bags here to come out and escape a future of mining lucre white over and marble luxe (or even demolition) which has wrought havoc over Perth’s MCM inheritance in the last decade or so. This residence deserves so much more and if the lucky buyers were us our hearts would be busting at the possibilities for the lightest of light improvements and the simple prospect of being able to live here in the sunshine.
