8 Comer Street Brighton East
State-of-the-Art Mid-Century Estate
Significant for its era, appropriate to today, and set in spectacular approx. 846sqm grounds, this is both a rare mid-Century estate and a remarkably liveable family home for today. Representing a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for an architecturally-savvy modern family to acquire a major Modernist home, this five bedroom 2.5 bathroom c.1960 home is ideal for today with a quiet fire-warmed formal lounge, a soaring stairwell lobby, and two levels of living and an entertainers’ patio oriented to the north.
Zoned for family harmony across the ages with a ground-floor master-domain (with a glamorous dressing-room and dramatic ensuite), the design is ahead if it’s time with a dedicated children’s level and a fifth bedroom to double for working at home.
The highest quality design of its time with Castlemaine Slate flowing inside to out, bespoke cabinetry at every turn, and a statement ‘60s floating stair at the heart of the central space, the home’s timber panelling, twin stone-fireplaces and tall windows form the backdrop to up-to-the-minute amenities including a stone-finished, Miele and Asko appliance kitchen and fully-tiled bathrooms, and streamlined built-in storage.
Climate-controlled by hydronic heating, and ducted reverse-cycle air-conditioning, the home is secured by both video-intercom and alarm, with a double auto-garage beyond a keypad-operated auto-gate, all powered by a 9kw solar system on the roof. Set in a mature formal landscaped garden characterised by an avenue of tall pears and a sweep of clipped hedging, the gardens have a backdrop of appropriately 1960s’ plantings …all kept healthy by 10,000L underground water-storage.
Located for family life just around the corner from the South Rd Colleges (Haileybury and St Leonard’s), this landmark mid-century home has Hampton St within a few blocks’ walk, Church St and all the Brighton schools within easy reach, and Brighton Beach station and bay within a minute.
