Beach pad a quirky piece of his­tory

Herald Sun - Property - - PROPERTY CONFIDENTIAL -

A UNIQUE 1970s beach house de­signed by the late, ac­claimed Mel­bourne ar­chi­tect Keith Reid has hit the mar­ket at Queen­scliff.

Bur­ren­dah is a beach house with a dis­tinct 1970s edge amid the dunes at Port Phillip Heads.

The three-bed­room home at 18 Fraser St was one of the last build­ings de­signed by Reid (pic­tured), at that time in part­ner­ship with son John Reid.

Reid was renowned for de­sign­ing churches and pri­vate res­i­dences.

The de­sign max­imises nat­u­ral light with both in­door and out­door north-fac­ing liv­ing ar­eas, while the quirky de­sign also boasts a “crows nest” on the up­per­most level, of­fer­ing 360de­gree views across The Rip, Queen­scliff town­ship and Swan Bay

Neil Laws, from Ker­leys Coastal, Point Lons­dale, is han­dling the sale with price ex­pec­ta­tions of $1.25 mil­lion.
