Baker House (Robin Boyd)Simply a modernist masterpiece built just over 50 years ago by acclaimed architect Robin Boyd with input from Roy Grounds. The main house was designed on mathematical and geometric principles resulting in a marvel of geometry and form. The home blends the beauty of the surrounding bush with the rustic feel of local quarried slate for its rounded walls. There are many beautiful informal living spaces all designed to let in natural light. Included are living room, library, guests’ room, studio, kitchen, school or family room along with 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and a fabulous central courtyard which would be ideal for entertaining or indeed, contemplation. The property is set on approximately 30 acres and would be ideal as an artist’s retreat or wellbeing centre as there are 2 other substantial buildings – one a delightful 2 bedroom pretty cottage and the other, a studio/library. Located close to Bacchus Marsh in total privacy, this is a unique property or weekender which has been described by experts as being one of Victoria’s most important post war homes.
