Beach pad a quirky piece of history
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.
