‘Symons House’; a proud piece of mid-century architecture recast with beautiful respect …
When ‘Symons House’ was passed onto the new custodians in just 2019, those who appreciated its mid-century roots waited with bated breath; what was to become of this Brent Blanks-conceived C1970 split-level haven on some 837sqm of Beaumont’s tranquil foothills?
Lovers of modernist architecture. Rejoice.
Kudos to those custodians and the guys at Morgan Build for taking what was so lovingly preserved in the first place and transforming it with such respect to a tightly-held era.
The end result is a 3-bedroom home that retains its rare sense of height, space and light courtesy of its vast cathedral windows and soaring voids that finally end at raked timber-beamed ceilings.
Subtle variations in textures, earthy tones, and shapes impart a warm, inviting and invigorating aesthetic you can feel. Literally.
The footprint of the upper level — accessed via a rear entertainer’s patio and carport — was recast to create open living and include a skylit kitchen that’s as much a work of art as it is unequivocally practical.
Think travertine splashbacks and heated floors, handmade mid-century style timber joinery, marble benchtops, brushed brass hardware and hanging pendants, and a 900mm freestanding oven.
Fun pops of colour and custom-fitted pieces by renowned joiner SpaceCraft appear around every corner; including a red ochre, curved hall cabinet and the wall hung vanities of the home’s Pinterest worthy bathrooms.
Without a doubt, the master’s ensuite prevails with its walk-in shower, two basins, underfloor heating and terrazzo tiling. A fully kitted out walk-in robe is one thing. A secret cellar James Bond would be proud of is another. You have both.
Approved plans for a separate studio, pool, deck and an extra parking space are in place should you want to make great use of the under-utilised land that falls in front of the home.
It’s hard to believe ‘Symons House’ can get any better.
