Impressive 1960s design - Launceston
In the rows of "stock-standard" 1960s homes in any given town or city in Tasmania there are always those that stand out from the crowd. This residential home is a case in point. The interesting awning that sweeps around the front of the building is eye-catching and stunning and is seen well before arriving at the home. It's disc shape continues from the front entrance and is the homes roof. A roof as a feature too, I like it! The same goes for the fence and the well maintained garden. I could well imagine the home in a magazine from the 1960s, "a new modern way of living" it could have read.
