Her­itage home de­stroyed by fire

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A FIRE re­duced one of the most beloved her­itage homes in Perth to ru­ins on De­cem­ber 21.

The cause of the fire at Pa­ganin House on The Boule­vard in Floreat is still un­de­ter­mined.

De­signed by renowned mod­ernist ar­chi­tect Iwan Iwanoff, the house was built in 1965 and most re­cently sold in April 2013 for about $2.2 mil­lion.

Read­ers shared their sad­ness over los­ing the “lo­cal trea­sure” when the Western Sub­urbs Weekly tweeted the news hours af­ter the fire gut­ted the four-bed­room home. “So sad, beau­ti­ful home,” Lee Ryan said. The own­ers were on hol­i­day at the time.

Pa­ganin House was con­sid­ered a trea­sure by lo­cals.
