This is the house I want to buy, 95 Mackenzie Street is absolutely divine!
mackenzie.house feels like the classic suburban home. The home you would expect from the 1960s, a stately facade, a generous porch, large backyard, everything the Australian dream has been built on.
The moment you step inside, thats the speechless moment, its room after room of authentic vintage. Vintage style that has become cool, desired and replicated. If you are a lover of vintage and mid century modern, the authenticity of the interior aesthetic will exceed your expectations!
The interiors are perfect in their originality, preserved and in mint condition. The craftsmanship is evident in the detailing, with custom built timber cabinetry throughout, ornate tiled wet areas and bespoke interior design features. The premium high spec build must have been the finest example of home beautiful, no expense spared and absolutely high end in its day.
Modern style and convenience are characterised by simplicity, democratic design and natural textures. Stone and timber paneling feature in the front lounge, geometric elements found in parquetry timber floors, patterned tiles in the wet areas and a play on light with the ornate textured glass light fittings.
This much loved family home embraces its vintage with timeless appeal – things have lasted because they are so good! A brilliant display of retro is so good! in the original pendulum light fittings, gorgeous geometric tiling, a touch of timber paneling, and expansive windows.
Needless to say the 246m2 floor plan offers so many flexible arrangements for a modern family lifestyle with multiple living spaces, additional separate access studio under the home perfect for a home business or au pair, large double garage with storage under the home and the position backing reserve is too good to be true. It is a home that is relevant in 2018 just as much as it 1960.
Whether your dream is to remodel, restore, refurbish, or recreate, you just have to stop and savour for just one moment, what has been perfect for more than 50 years in the mackenzie.house.
