‘The Wright House’, Arguably one of Robin Boyd’s Finest Achievements

Expressions of Interest closing Saturday 28th May at 4pm (unless sold prior).

Resting hillside with breathtaking valley views to the far distant Yarra Ranges, “The Wright House” (c1962) is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire a Robin Boyd masterpiece. An iconic exemplar of Boyd’s design genius and frequently featured over the years in exhibitions, open days and architectural publications, this stunning home is living proof that exceptional design is indeed timeless. Thought to be one of his finest architectural achievements and hidden from view on some 2 acres of quintessential Australian bushland, this dual-level 3 bedroom/2 bathroom home features a sequence of simple open spaces where sliding rice-paper screens create zones for either intimate or grand-scale occasion, all framing spectacular views through windows that run almost entirely around the home. The extraordinary craftsmanship of original cabinetry, Coldstream rock walls and native hardwood timbers floors imbue a rare organic beauty throughout a home perfectly in harmony with its natural surrounds. The social hub of the design is a well-appointed granite kitchen surrounded by an array of light-filled living and dining areas flowing onto a large garden room; an idyllic all-weather setting for al fresco entertaining. Also on this level, the main bedroom sits alongside WIRs, ensuite and home-office/hobby room whilst downstairs via a spectacular masonry wall and stone stairs, 2 further bedrooms and bathroom envelop a fireside living room. Avant-garde in its time, today this ageless home offers a unique and versatile family environment totally in tune with contemporary requirements with other highlights including separate self-contained studio for guest or teen use (with bedroom/large living area, kitchenette and ensuite), idyllic garden settings for entertaining (including outdoor bar), ducted heating/cooling, large laundry, drying cabinet, auto-gates/intercom, sub-floor cellar, store room, water tanks, workshop and carports. A modernist marvel by a doyen of Australian architecture, this home is beautifully located in a privileged country-style setting just moments to Warrandyte village, the river and buses with easy access to EastLink, Goldfields Plaza shopping and excellent schools.
