The Joyce House.
- 3 Beds
- 2 Baths
- 2 Cars
Designed in 1962 by Towell, Jansen and Rippon architects. This commissioned family home is one of an increasingly small collection of noteworthy homes of its era which is in its original state and not bastardised by modern adaptations.
The real appeal of this family home becomes apparent upon your inspection. A clever mix of indoor-outdoor living interconnected with a colourful, landscaped garden and private pool setting. The sundeck takes advantage of the elevated position and overlooks Cheltenham Recreation Club plus takes in views of Lane Cove National Park, looking towards the Seventh Day Adventist Hospital at Wahroonga.
The Joyce House is hidden from the street by a high sandstone block wall. The only features visible from the street are the double carport, cantilevered entry steps to the front door and floor to ceiling windows in the living room.
Many of the Frank Lloyd Wright architectural concepts are incorporated into this family home. Cantilevered cupboards and fireplace, sweeping sundeck, water features, timber panelling, bunk heads, concrete floors and a few modern improvements at the time. The work station adjoining the living room has a built-in turntable and AM radio.
Lighting was used cleverly in the house, with copper, wall mounted, upright light shades, skylights and recessed florescence lights.
Ideally placed on a spacious 814sqm level land parcel with easy access to Lyne Road Reserve (off-leash dog park), Cheltenham train station and M2. Located in the sought-after catchments for Cheltenham Girls' High, Epping Boys High and Beecroft Public schools. Only 2 train stops to Macquarie University and Macquarie Shopping Centre
