Remember how we said Kew is - weirdly - the heart of modernism in Melbourne? Well, enter 12 Dunlop Avenue. The modernist home in the Studley Park precinct of Melbourne, sold in May 2011 for $2.215m. Now, only 16 months after it sold to its current owners, the home is to auction with expectations around the same price as it last sold. The home is a stunner, by all stretches of the imagination. Even with a very surface level renovation (and a pretty B-grade one at that) dated between its 2006 sale for $1.45m and its most recent sale, the functional floor plan and strong architectural bones can not be disputed. Maybe it’s the 1200sqm parcel with pool and pool house, but Marshall White agents Stephen Gough and Robert Ding sadly state their listing “may also be of interest to those looking to build a trophy home of real significance.” Say it ain’t so, Stephen and Robert!
