14 Pasadena Avenue Beaumaris
'Grant House - 1956’
Designed by award-winning architect Peter McIntyre for the current owners in 1956, “Grant House” presents an exciting opportunity for devotees of classic Beaumaris architecture. Offering instant and everlasting appeal, the home has been sympathetically refreshed and boasts an era-appropriate colour palette recently selected by Mr McIntyre and his wife (a former interior designer) – a choice that stays true to the home’s mid-century heritage.
Immediately recognizable thanks to its distinct facade with curved roof, the home showcases interiors that seamlessly connect to their surroundings thanks to vast expanses of glass. An authentic conical fireplace is the focal point of the living/dining area, which is enhanced by broad north-facing windows and raised ceilings with clear span trusses – trusses reminiscent of those found at Melbourne’s Olympic Swimming Pool, an iconic building that McIntyre designed in collaboration with renowned engineer, Bill Irwin for the Melbourne Olympics, also in 1956.
Coral and plum hues star in the central kitchen, which has been equipped with modern conveniences such as quality stainless-steel appliances.
The home’s rear modules incorporate four good-sized bedrooms – a service area with laundry & bathroom plus an enclosed sunroom are also offered. Awash with original features, including authentic light fittings, the home’s restored west and north-facing pergolas create a choice of wonderful alfresco spaces to enjoy.
On approximately 780sqm of prized Beaumaris land, the property is perfectly positioned for everyday ease & convenience. Nestled amongst established gardens in a quiet beachside neighbourhood, it is within the coveted Beaumaris Secondary zone, just moments to the Concourse, transport and the bay.
