2/64 Hapua St, by Claude Megson

 

4

I’ve posted some of its beautiful Megson neighbours before (3/64, 54), and now that it’s on the market you can explore the inside of this smaller one-bedroom Megson townhouse/apartment that can still boast a mostly-original interior.

This is one of those very small places that genius makes appear large (even though the furniture arrangement shown has confused lounge and dining spaces): simple things like viewshafts front to back, borrowed scenery, full-height French doors, exposed rafters, subtle changes in level and height, cunningly-placed storage, all-day sun through the lantern over the central dining space, overlapping and nested spaces etc. All very thoughtfuly done, and very efffective indeed at turning a small jewel into what feels like a large-souled space.

Megson used to talk about a house being something you would sometimes want to wrap around yourself like a cloak, and other times just disappear. This small place fits the bill.

NB: If you’re keen to experience it properly, in the flesh,, there are Open Homes this Saturday and Sunday avo.

dear,
sir/mam
I read your blog, its really awesome,
I am seeing that you are selling home. I have also a site related to you.
You may need to move to some other place because of your job or occupation. If you are a homeowner, you will have to sell off your house.

Moving to a huge and busy city costs a lot of money but you can reduce your expenses if you consider affordable foreclosed condo properties for sale. As far as foreclosed properties are concerned some of the better deals have been made through a short sale. Condo properties for sale through short sales take place when the home owner has lost the ability to meet his mortgage obligation.See more at-sell your newark house
