Step back in time to a hilltop house with views across the city through picture windows. Exposed brick and the extensive use of natural wood maintain a mid-century atmosphere, enhanced by period furnishings and gleaming softwood floors throughout.
“Built and designed by Rex Fraser in 1962 , then sold to Jack Evans, his brother in law in 1967. 603 is an untouched example of mid Century architecture. The interior is complete but we are in the process of finishing the exterior. We have owned “Jack’s House” for 23 years and have only recently equipped it for Airbnb use. The furniture, bar a few pieces, is original 1960’s. The art on the walls is from our own vintage poster collection. The Raphael above the fireplace is a recent acquisition.”

Moved to Ballarat from Carlton in 1987. Married to Cate for 33 years with four adult children and two outside dogs. Travelled to Europe on skiing holidays when much younger and worked in the ski industry. Designer and builder of timber dining tables and sideboards. Reads everyday but nothing with depth. Haven't moved passed The Doors or America in musical taste. Keen entertainer at home and collector of early Australian etchings and relief prints. Lives in Ballarat in a restored Federation home. No life motto but honesty and truthfulness are important traits.
