As promised here is the handful of mid-century homes in our general vicinity.
I'd love to see inside each and every one of them, but x-ray vision is not my forte. The exteriors will just have to do. This is what I see on my morning walk:
|This 1960s home angled on its block|
|Same 1960s house, nestled into the trees. taken from another vantage point|
I just couldn't get a good shot of this home. The bushes are overgrown around it and you just can't see any more from the street. Such a shame because it would have such striking street appeal. It is on a large corner block and from this snippet you can see there is a lot of sliding glass which opens up onto the front patio (and of course two trampolines...!?).
The solid front fence is a new addition. There used to be brick breeze blocks as the front fence, which were just perfect (in my humble opinion), allowing you more of a view of the house. It probably just didn't give the owners enough privacy.
Anyway, this place looks like it would be the party house! Martini, anyone?
|Another 60s style home, brick and lots of glass|
|From its corner position, the house above has views towards Mt Cootha (see the TV station aerials), which is on the west side of Brisbane.|
|Same house from above.|
But all they must see is the green plastic rainwater tank and trees!! Maybe they don't use the glass front room very much?
There you have a mini mid-century tour of our area. There really are only a handful of homes...I thought I would find more...I might have to walk further...
