A Warm And Wonderful 1950s Home In North Warrandyte
The 1950s house of designer Vy Costen, marine scientist Andrew Costen, and their three boys is located in North Warrandyte, where many of Melbourne’s underrated mid-century gems lie!
The house is situated on the former Koornong Experimental School site, which operated here in the 1940s. Following its closure, the site was subdivided into 12 blocks, with Vy and Andrew’s house completed on one of four vacant lots between 1953 and 1955.
Many of the home’s original features remain today, including the wonderful exposed stone walls, timber panelling, and charming retro kitchen!
