32 Howitt Road, Caulfield North
The ultimate Golden Mile opportunity
Designed by the late Ernest & Noami Fooks as their ultimate lifelong home, this exclusive & extraordinary 1960’s home is perfectly located in Caulfield North’s most prestigious street & on a massive north facing 1,092m2* allotment magic can be recreated within the current floorplan & plans & permits for the addition of a contemporary family pavilion. Deceptively unassuming from the street, this single storey designed house is a complex, multilayered composition in a fully designed landscape, enriched by the complexity & variety of finishes throughout with generous entertainment areas. Predominantly flat roofed, punctured with a slate clad mansard roof section providing North facing clerestory lighting, the flow from the front to the rear is through a series of spaces which vary in their degree of enclosure. The house is of architectural significance for its high level of craftsmanship in the oiled teak built-in joinery & finishes. The strong Japanese influence throughout the house & garden with its winding path of slate slabs with dark grey pebbles between curved broken brick wall & pebbled courtyards incorporates aspects of Scandinavian & European design.
