What was once a hushed secret, Kerrimuir Street in Geelong’s northern suburbs has fast become  of . So it was with baited breath that we waited for this house, at number 4, to be listed (we had received the inside scoop from the rightfully proud, mid-century modern loving agent).

Now we get to present this crown jewel to TDF readers (we posted about it once before on Modernist Australia in 2012, but that’s now lost in the ether of our archives).

What we have ultimately discovered is a fairytale applicable to any domestic MCM house in Australia – should it ever be as fortunate as this one! From a loved but worn family home of middle age to a doleful, tired rental in 2008, 4 Kerrimuir Street was just barely gussied up for sale in 2012. The home was bought, remodelled and refurbished by the most insightful, restrained and loving hand, and is now finally re-entering the market in 2018 as a dazzling triumph!

We can offer nothing but rousing huzzahs and admiration to Peter Woolard at  for this lesson in securing a lovely, humble MCM possibility into a brilliant future.

So many of our dear readers us seeking advice on how to renovate and restore their own recent MCM purchases. And all we can say is: look at this, for this is indeed how it’s done.
