The house is located in the Monkswood area of the city and not long after started this site, I featured another very similar property, which was a four-bedroom with a similar look inside and out. I can only presume both are part of a small modernist development.

In fact, that’s about all I know about these places. I don’t know the area too well and I can’t find anything else about them. So I’m simply taking this house at face value. An interesting piece of 1970s architecture.

This is a smaller two-bedroom property and although updated, it still has a lot of its original character intact. In fact, most of this place is original.

The upgrades look to be the kitchen area with integrated appliances, along with the decor and carpets. Beyond that, pretty much most of that is original and packed with the 1970s details the original owner fell in love with.

The angular architecture itself with the protruding windows is obviously the first original detail, but beyond the front door you will notice the beams, the exposed brick, the open plan layout with partitions, the feature wood walls and of course, the bathroom.

Take out the furniture and replace it with something more in keeping with the era to create something of a time capsule with this one.

Externally there is parking outside the property, along with ‘established mature’ gardens to the side with lawn, a hedge/tree boundary for privacy and a low maintenance ornamental garden. There is also a south facing balcony off lounge/dining room, as you might have noticed.
