MID CENTURY MODERNIST DESIGN
Located at the very rear of the complex away from the road, this impressive end of terrace townhouse offers a slice of architectural history and is ideal for those looking to enter this highly desirable location.
This mid-century townhouse complex of just 11, was designed by renowned WA architects Krantz and Sheldon and completed in 1967. An emphasis on minimalist modern design, sustainable construction and a desire to avoid waste and maximise space put these designers way ahead of their time.
Surrounded by lush gardens, Melview has largely retained it’s original features. Internally the property is swathed in natural light and designed for cross flow ventilation. With generously proportioned spaces throughout, the downstairs living room is a standout with a striking hanging channel stringer jarrah staircase being the hero. With floor to ceiling windows and doors, the room opens to a sun-drenched front porch overlooking the gardens where you can just imagine spending hours soaking up the sunshine with a morning coffee or a glass of wine at the end of the day.
Upstairs are two bedrooms and a bathroom, the master with BIR’s and opening to its own private balcony, where you can just see glimpses of the river and the city, gorgeous in the evenings as you watch the city skyline light up.
Krantz and Sheldon’s design “Melview” sits proudly in an ultimate location with an outlook over the river through to the city. It is believed Krantz’s firm was responsible for around ninety percent of apartments built in Perth in the early to mid 20th century and employed many Perth architects including renowned Iwan Iwanoff. The architects work is considered so significant that an exhibition of Kranzt’s contribution to WA Architecture is currently on display at the Museum of Perth.
This rare and extraordinary property is a must see for those who appreciate mid-century modernist design and ideal for those wanting low maintenance living in a wonderful friendly community with Melville Plaza, public transport, sporting facilities and more all within a few minutes’ walk.
