Radical Home Alert: The Newport Weekender That Gets It Right
For $1.4m+ you can pick up an instant Radical Terrace-favourite. What likely began as a bland mid-century home perched above the town of Newport and its namesake beach has been transformed into a weekender that looks more original than any “original weekender” we’ve seen. The exposed beam ceiling, bleached flooring, quirky kitchen, and interior fit-out combine mighty well. Nice work, anonymous interior designer/architect. We wish we could give you the credit you deserve!
The price indication of $1.4m+ is very reasonable, if conservative. Even numbered homes on the Gordon Road cul-de-sac nab a western hillside location with a steep footpath incline to the building lots that are also accessed from a level, rear laneway. Several unrenovated precedents in the last few years have sold on the street in the $1.0m - $1.3m range.
