House of the week
62 Chisholm Avenue Avalon
Inspiring three generations of acclaimed artists, the Hy-Brasil is named after a mythical Garden of Eden off the Irish coast; spanning over 6000sqm with commanding Pittwater and ocean views, it's impossible to miss the connection. Exceptionally private and seemingly perched on top of the world, this is the spot Alexander Stewart Jolly created a bushland masterpiece in 1936 out of native sandstone and timber; heritage-listed and one of only three organic' homes built in Avalon, Jolly's architecture and philosophy have influenced generations of leading architects and designers across Australia.
