Modern pad stands out in Balwyn
Industrial style meets funky flair at this eye-catching three-storey home, built ahead of its time.
While more than a decade old, the Mark Richards Architects design at 6 Boston Rd, Balwyn still exudes contemporary edge, with a striking facade, high-vaulted ceilings and large windows.
After an impressive renovation by its owner, it’s back on the market with a $4.6-$4.9 million price guide.

Marshall White Boroondara agent Hamish Tostevin said the vendors injected their signature style, including colourful wallpaper, retro light fittings and bright artwork.
“It’s quite contemporary and very unique, which sets it apart from other normal homes in the area,” Mr Tostevin said.
“It has a brilliant position on one of Balwyn’s most highly regarded streets.”
The angular statement facade was different to other modern homes in the area, which were often large French provincial-style homes, he added.
Luxury extras inside include a cinema, bar, an executive study and a four-car garage with a cellar and gym.
The large living domain at the heart of the five-bedroom home is warmed by a fireplace.
Large industrial beams cut through the top-floor hallway and add extra character to the property.
A mature oak tree shades the outdoor entertainment area, which includes an above-ground plunge pool and spa.
The modern masterpiece is for private sale, with expressions of interest scheduled to closed October 22.
