The iconic 'Bridgford House', built in 1954 and designed by Robin Boyd, one of Australia's most influential and celebrated architects, not only presents a rare opportunity to reside in this coveted 'golden triangle' of Black Rock but also serves as a remarkable testament to Bayside's modernist heritage.

Built for Charles Bridgford, a shipping agent, and his wife, Phyllis, the site's proximity to the Black Rock Yacht Club and Half Moon Bay was to attend to his love for the water.

This single-level home, situated on an approximately 650sqm site, embraces the perfect corner position with both Beach Road and Bayview Crescent frontages.

The home's original design remains untouched and meticulously preserved, showcasing its unique character and impressive condition. With only three owners to credit, it exudes a sense of privacy within its surroundings and offers a charming haven, fostering a profound connection to space.

The home features four bedrooms, including a master with an ensuite. The additional bedrooms are serviced by an original master bathroom. There is room for the whole family with a sunroom or study, a light-filled living oasis, and a dining room that are both adorned with original fireplaces.

The dining area is complemented by the classic kitchen and seamlessly merges with the outside space through a terracotta-clad table. Stepping outside, you are greeted by a secluded paved garden with a tranquil fishpond, well-cared-for lush northern gardens, a recently updated fence, and a native-planted front garden.

The property has been optimized for modern-day living and also features a 13.32KW solar system, a rainwater tank, a separate laundry, a convenient double carport, and ample custom timber storage.


Close to schools, the Black Rock village, Black Rock Lifesaving Club, and Black Rock Sailing Club, as well as transportation and renowned golf courses, this offers a rare chance to live in a sought-after beachside area and own a remarkable piece of Melbourne's modernist heritage, providing a fully functional and charming family home.
