Alfred Abrahams House, Brighton

Alfred Abrahams House, BrightonThis fantastic Moderne house in Elwood St, Brighton was built in 1935 for Melbourne Solicitor Alfred Abrahams.

My photo shows the private part of the house, the rooms to the left of the circular stairwell are used as public areas and feature large windows facing onto the street and the rear of the property.

The house was used during the filming of Irresistible starring Susan Sarandon, Sam Neill, Emily Blunt and Bud Tingwell.

  1. Simply gorgeous! I might have to check out Irrisistible just to see the house.

  2. It's fun picking locations movies and seeing how they have distorted a city to fit the scenes they want.

  3. yep, a nice one there indeed David!
