Eaglemont’s finest modernist homes for sale
Two of Eaglemont’s most impressive homes have hit the market on the same street.
Mid-century style comes in its original form and takes on a contemporary twist at the Glenard Drive properties.
At No. 32, the modernist design by architect Nicholas Griffin has hardly changed since the 1970s.

Nelson Alexander Ivanhoe agent Gordon Hope said the “funky” four-bedroom property was for sale for the first time in over 30 years, with a $1.7-$1.85 million price guide.
“We’ve already had about 15 architects look at it … the sauna, spa, magnesium pool, slate floor are all original,” Mr Hope said.
“There have only been a couple of owners since it was built.”
The kitchen and bathroom still contain retro tiles and colourful cabinetry. A fireplace surrounded by brick, stone and copper also features in the living room.
Nearby, a reimagined 1950s house at 7 Glenard Drive is also for sale, with a $2.25-$2.45 million price guide.
The four-bedroom house was transformed by its architect owner into a modern masterpiece with splashes of colour.
Vendors Jesse and Georgia Judd have dubbed the property “a glasshouse”, with huge windows in every room allowing in abundant natural light.
They added extra flair through bold feature tiling on the facade, in the living room and bathrooms.
Nelson Alexander Ivanhoe agent Liz Walker said it was one of the most spectacular homes in Ivanhoe, set in architect Walter Burley Griffin’s renowned Glenard Estate.
The large open-plan living area includes a stylish kitchen and central feature fireplace between the dining area and lounge room.
The space flows outside to lush gardens that include a 70-year-old beech tree and a pear orchard.
Both properties are scheduled for Saturday auctions, with No. 32 looking to sell on September 7 and No. 7 a week later.
