Mid-Century Modern Oasis with Breathtaking Views


As you take the winding bush driveway off the aptly named Eden Close, prepare to be captivated by a stunning example of American-inspired mid-century modern architecture. An era of design, in demand now as much as at its peak, this home stands as a testament to the best of this style – but with an Australian twist. Almost boomerang in shape, the elegant profile of this home was artfully devised to maximise the property's northerly aspect and spectacular headland and beach views.

While its front door is an eccentric portal to the home, you should enter via the formal lounge to best experience the stunning vistas and appreciate the visionary architect and daring original owners inspired to create this modern oasis that embraces the beauty of its surroundings. The pavilion-style lounge, with its eclectic mix of natural materials and floor-to-ceiling windows, showcases the inspiration for this layout – with encompassing views of rolling seas and iconic headlands over Glenrock, past Bar Beach, stretching out to the dunes of Birubi beach right to the tip of Tomaree Headland. And as you stand in awe, feeling part of it all, you will soak up the sense that time passes a little more slowly here and that you have found a place to relax, unwind and feel one with nature. Ah, the serenity! You can simply sit back and enjoy the way the wide windows bring nature in, and the way the play of light softly infuses the western red cedar panelling and beams with a warm glow – while the wood fire and natural materials add layers of depth and envelop you with a sense of style and comfort.

From here, the home flows to a sizeable dining, and bespoke kitchen which was custom-designed in keeping with the originality of the home. Featuring generously proportioned brushed concrete benchtops and ply doors with ornate hand-crafted handles yet enjoying the accoutrements of modern kitchen design with a kitchen island, deep drawers, an under-mount sink and stacks of storage. You won't mind being a slave to this kitchen sink – this room's large windows also soak up the incredible vistas.

Moving through the home, you'll find a family room providing an ideal casual living space to unwind, and three sunlit bedrooms, each room capturing the lush coastal outlook from wide windows. The master bedroom offers a spacious walk-in robe and ensuite, artfully modernised but in keeping with the era's character – the best feature being the double shower with twin copper showerheads with louvred windows opening out to the view. Additionally, a spacious family bathroom with spa bath, a powder room, linen cupboards and large laundry complete this level.

After that, you can venture downstairs to discover a light-filled bedroom with an ensuite. This room is currently set up as an artist studio, and you can see why – the vistas and light are incredible here, serving as an inspirational space to do, or just to be. A double garage is also located on this floor.

Outside, past a mix of native plants and citrus trees on its sprawling 5700m2 block, a meandering path will guide you through bushland to the fire trail, from where you can make your way among the trill of bellbirds, straight down to Dudley South Beach with its powdery sand and rockpools to explore. Spend the day here and come home to rinse off in the ultra-deep concrete pool, beautifully refinished with tallow-wood decking. After your swim, fire up the barbecue in the adjoining space, and after dinner, when it gets a little chilly, you can light the huge firepit in the centre of the garden – a feature of many a lively gathering over the years.

Dudley is one of those places where not many homes come up for sale, and you can see why. Surrounded by natural bushland with incredible beaches and close to schools, as well as being a friendly neighbourhood where kids can be kids exploring the bush and beach, playing in the playground or exploring their talents on the many sporting fields. Overall, it feels like a world away yet is conveniently close to all the amenities you'll need, and an easy commute north or south.
