1957-58 Iggulden House |50 Wells Rd Beaumaris VIC 3193, Australia | Architect: David Chancellor of the firm Chancellor & Patrick
Iggulden House at 50 Wells Road, Beaumaris, which is registered (File No. B7364) by the Victorian National Trust as being of State significance, was commissioned as a home and inspirational environment for its owner, an aviation historian and author. It occupies a prominent site on a hilltop approximately 500 metres from PortPhillip Bay. The brick pylon and timber-framed house exploits the full potential of views to the north and south.
Two stories of living space are topped by a third story lookout and studio over which hovers a projecting butterfly roof. An excellent example of privately-commissioned domestic architecture of the 1950s in suburban Melbourne, its design is both functional and aesthetically expressive. Via: 1 | 2
