We live in a disposable society, in an age when so many things in life are too often forgotten or disposed of to make room for bigger and newer things.
So it's a precious surprise when one encounters a stunning home that has survived the times, continuing to act as a testament to the era and style of which it was built. It's even more precious, when the architect who designed the home intelligently and specifically, is none other than the father of Australian modern architecture, Harry Seidler.
Highly respected and generationally famous, Seidler's designs captured the world - with houses in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra - and one home, his only in South Australia, in Beaumont.
From the moment you see this home you will notice absolute unique design, the skillion roofline and boldly coloured front door making it a stand out on the street.
Stepping inside, an incredible natural stone wall is featured in the spacious living and dining area, with impressive floor to ceiling glass doors providing stunning vistas into the garden beyond. Completely unique, the warming fireplace boasts an interesting asymmetrical mantel, beautifully blending with the heritage stone and original silver ash woodwork, with up-lighting highlighting upmost quality. Intelligently designed, the versatile space is positioned just so, with specific measurements ensuring the hot summer sun never overheats the home, while allowing the lower winter sun to stream through and fill the room with natural light.
Flowing on, the hand crafted kitchen showcases beautiful silver ash cabinetry, harmoniously combining with stainless steel modern appliances, inclusive of ILVE oven and separate wine cooling cabinet. A four metre long stainless steel bench top provides room to cook up a storm, while glass cupboard doors front ample storage facilities and bring fantastic bursts of colour.
Heading down stairs, two bedrooms sport spacious built in robes, each with original floating desk, fashionable slanted ceilings and private access outdoors.
A separate lavatory room replicates the main family bathroom, where a modern 'fresco' finish blends with bold splashbacks. Extra cupboard and linen closet space in the bathroom and hallway supply plenty of storage to accommodate even the biggest of collectors.
Kick back with the kids in the spacious family room, with even more storage and fantastic natural light.
On a downstairs private level, the exquisite master bedroom beautifully blends outdoor serenity with modern luxuries, with wall length, commercial grade sliding doors opening out to a patio area. A luxurious ensuite boasts a stunning shower cove, with deliciously extravagant rain-head shower, floating double vanity, and built in cupboard space with stylish up-lighting. With plenty of room in the large walk in robe, as well as fantastically convenient sensor lights built in to each of the three double wardrobes - feel free to shop up a storm in the local Burnside Village only minutes up the road.
Outside, an original in-ground pool features in the landscaped rear yard. Drawing inspiration from American landscape designer Thomas Church, the garden compliments the house design perfectly, with featuring outdoor mural art inspired by an original Seidler design. An entertaining paradise, the outdoor area offers multiple spots to kick back with some friends and a glass of wine, while watching the kids have fun in the pool.
Retained down to the smallest detail, superbly updated in contemporary style, whilst being an absolute product of its time - this home represents and re-captures the underlying Modernist ideology prominent in so many of the Seidler designs. Expressing much of Seidler's genius with management of clean lines, space and with a desire for simplicity, this mid-century masterpiece sits as a perfect example of the architect's original work.
With a magical combination of privacy, tranquillity and luxury, and set in total harmony with nature in an elevated position in the foothills of Adelaide - on offer now is a once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase this one of a kind home.
