Private Mid-Century Renovator with Ocean Views

Take a step back in time to appreciate this mid-century masterpiece. From an era of architecture that is often revered and replicated today, due to its timeless style and sophistication where practicality and privacy out shone pretentiousness, and where style was not measured in size. This was an era where the design of a home was created to excite those that occupied the residence, rather than to impress those that were merely driving past.

In 1965 the Porsche 911 was the latest sports car on the market, the Apollo 11 Moon Landing was still being planned, The Rolling Stones released 'I Can't Get No Satisfaction' and Melbourne businessman Arnold Robert's, commissioned John Dalton to design his dream home on a 1 1/3 acre lot subdivided from a banana plantation, on top of Buderim. Dalton, was known for climatically responsive designs, which responded to the subtropical climate in which they were located and this is evident in the design of 53 Orme Road. Mr Roberts also commissioned one of Australia's most influential landscape designers Edna Walling, to design the garden. Upon completion, this property was the feature home in Australian Home Beautiful Magazine in the May 1966 edition.

The opportunity exists to secure this fantastic property and restore it back to its former glory or redevelop the generous 2059sqm parcel of flat ocean view land on top of Buderim. With unmatched privacy from every side, this property offers outstanding views from the current residence with the opportunity to build a second story and secure world-class, ocean and hinterland views.

Offering both a sea change and a tree change, this unique property positioned in one of the area's finest streets and bordering onto the historic Wises Farm is quietly hidden from the outside world and perfect for those that want to live the ultimate Queensland coastal lifestyle. Featuring four bedrooms plus a study, three bathrooms, an oversized garage for 1.5 cars, double carport plus a huge kitchen overlooking the fully screened north facing outdoor area and swimming pool.

Opportunities to purchase property with such design and stylish significance are rarely available. Secure this now to live the Australian lifestyle as interpreted by one of the country's most awarded and revered mid-century architects.
