After downsizing from their long serving family home in Melbourne, Jeff and Mariko Provan were keen to find a coastal retreat. After discovering this two bedroom fibro beach shack just metres from Mount Martha beach, they bought it on the spot.
Originally, the pair had grand plans for re-building on this generous site, but it wasn’t long before they reconsidered. Soon after taking possession, it was clear that this humble shack had a special charm worth preserving. ‘Now, we love this place so much and it works so well as a beach shack, that we are keeping it exactly as is’ says Jeff.
Inside, an accumulation of furniture and objects collected over Jeff and Mariko’s 40 years together gives this place a unique, ad-hoc charm.
