ARCHITECTURAL RETRO – RE-FIT OR RE-BUILD?

14 Cromer Road, Beaumaris

With a glint of the bay from its prized corner block position, this architecturally designed 3BR 50s home in Beaumaris will have you torn between restoring a retro classic and building a brand new dream home. On one hand, it’s hard to resist the opportunity of taking advantage of this seaside corner block measuring 665m² with a 17m frontage and constructing a brand new, contemporary masterpiece with huge open living areas and all life’s luxuries. You won’t find a better nook this close to the beach or a better neighbourhood for that matter to raise a family. But then there’s the equally rewarding option of adding some flesh to the bones of this existing 1953 Kevin Knight designed home. There are plenty of great retro features already in place including a slate paved foyer with feature rock wall upon entry, plus rustic timber lined walls and exposed ceiling beams. The north facing formal living/dining room is particularly light and spacious and offers the warmth of a wide, open fireplace. Linked by a glass sliding door is the every day family living area (inc AC) which is overlooked by an open plan timber style kitchen. Certainly ahead of its time when built in the 50s, the kitchen is not only open plan, it has lots of storage space, feature splash back tiling and is linked to a large storage room and separate laundry. Dividing the living areas from the sleeping areas, a long hallway leads through from the kitchen with various rooms peeling off from it. There’s a shower room, a separate room with original bath and basin/vanity and of course a separate toilet. Two of the three bedrooms are equipped with built in robes and overlook a large, sunny front garden. And if you like your outdoor space, you’ll love the large front garden along with the two distinct rear zones – one paved zone for entertaining and the rear garden behind the work shed. There’s also a double carport with an interesting entry that’s divided by a well-established tree! So, the question remains…..Do you bring back the sparkle to this single level architectural home or use the prized land to develop a brand new home. The choice is yours, but either way you can’t really go wrong.
