A bit about us

Beaumaris Modern started life as a Facebook page and later an Instagram account. Our purpose? Alerting keen potential purchasers of the mid-century houses available for sale in Beaumaris.

There is now a huge groundswell of interest in these Beaumaris gems. But unfortunately, owners & developers without any knowledge of mid-century design, have demolished many of these beautiful homes, not understanding their long-term value nor potential for sympathetic renovation.

So now, along with alerting people of properties for sale, we are also keen to share information about mid-century architecture. Through celebration and education, we hope to save as many of these properties as we can. And in doing so, bring like-minded people together to share their passion for mid-century architecture.

Some of our committee are currently in Palm Springs, USA. (See pic - Annie, Jamie and Dot with Charles Phoenix from Americana) Speaking to MCM preservation groups there, the challenges they faced 10+ years ago are the same challenges we face now. But past misconceptions regarding loss in property value and homeowner privileges, have completely flipped as residents have seen MCM homes become so valued and sought after. And the area has become a mecca for architects and enthusiasts from all over the world (bringing big dollars to the town). Now people clamor to have their homes heritage protected. In fact, bronze plaques in front of these homes that proudly display their historic value are common place. How wonderful it would be if Beaumaris could adopt this practice?! ... See MoreSee Less
