“Moorabinda” A Mid Century Modern Sibbel

Growing up, Macgregor Knox, son of builder and architect Alistair Knox, received a hands-on understanding of design, quality and craftsmanship. He also heard his father mention…on numerous occasions…Sibbel Builders, the bespoke builders had the same ideals and collaborated with his father on a number of projects.

With that in mind, it’s easy to see why Macgregor and his family have made this Sibbel home their own.

Set on a 4,497m2 (approx.) allotment landscaped by Gordon Ford, in a pocket sought after for its peace, privacy and easy access to all things Eltham, this Mid Century Modern home, completed in 1969 showcases every aspect that makes Sibbel homes so well regarded.

Oriented to the north, it features parquetry flooring, bespoke cabinetry, exposed beams, floor to ceiling glass including frameless mitred windows throughout a carefully considered floorplan. A generous lounge anchored by an open fire and overlooked by the dining area, a study and an open plan kitchen finished in solid timber and complete with a Smeg range, are thoughtfully and peacefully zoned from the accommodation options. Three spacious bedrooms all with robes and sharing two bathrooms provide plenty of space at days end.

Complementing the main house is a separate mud brick studio which is ideal for teens, guests or as a home office or artist’s studio. A vast undercover area paved in reclaimed reds partners perfectly with a pool in landscaped surrounds for year-round outdoor enjoyment.

Lifestyle extras of extensive parking options for a boat and caravan, solar panels, a triple carport, un-fenced tennis court, veggie garden, a mix of citrus and stone fruit trees, and chook-shed create the ideal family environment!
