31-33 Dawn Cres, Bonnie Doon VIC

Barnaby ol' mate was half right this morning when he suggested getting out of the city for an affordable home (employment dearth and dodgy current tax laws aside). We at MA are all for putting a ring around the capitals and focussing instead on the regions but he was...

11 Waller Cres, Campbell ACT

Legit and a just bit more. This is a superb, unmolested slice of Canberra MCM by hall-of-famer Neville Ward would be a dream to inhabit. Floating around in such delicate yet earthy spaces. Light, air, the bush, the sky, wrapped in your own cosy...

281 Oliver St, Grafton NSW

Grafton gives it up today with an immaculate little home chock-a-block with the kinds of details and signatures to drive any Mid-Century retro snaffler wild - including freestanding fireplace, wonderful louvered and segmented windows, wild-angled kitchen and even a...

9 Barrabool Rd, Belmont VIC

So good we've listed it twice (well with 2 years in between). Not much has changed here since we saw it last; same beautiful timber, same wall of north facing windows and seagrass floor. Same ripping pozzie in a regional hotspot. Perhaps a little more pricey than...

9 Henry St, Maffra VIC

We do love our regional finds here at MA, and this little gem is the business. Recently bought (2014) and updated ever-so-slightly and sympathetically this home in the gorgeous Gippsland Lakes area has charm, features and potential by the boatload. All ripe and ready...

20 Kaylorne St, Boondall QLD

The is a case of a much loved rambling residence now being sold by its original owners and the agent is doing his darndest to ensure that this classic 1966 beauty is passed on to someone who will cherish it. Though looking rather McMansiony from the street, the...

26 Derwent Laken Rd, Otago TAS

We interrupt our listing schedule to bring you this 1970s villa in the hills. The total package; brilliant yet unfussy U configuration floorplan from notable architect Bob Nation. Hilltop position with unrivalled 360 degree views across the Derwent to MONA....

1 Russell St, McCrae VIC

An absolute, undeniable ball-tearer. 1/2 an acre of pure north, and Port Philip Bay, facing terraced garden, with charming decked pool enclosure (including shed cabana) and an all original home - the pure manifestation of summer dreams stretching back 50 years. We can...

Making inroads

We have been extremely heartened by communication with several new homeowners over the past few months, letting us know that properties they saw first on the market  via MA are now in their safe hands. How great to start the year with glad tidings. It means so much to...

Heritage victory #2, The Thurlow House saga concludes

A month overdue, but still some great news, Harry Seidler's Thurlow House, a home transfer which caused a minor snafu in Modernist and heritage circles last year has with co-operation from the new owners and the Heritage Council of NSW, achieved state heritage...

Compulsory viewing from Aunty

It's finally here, after over a year of waiting and working ourselves into a pitched fever tomorrow, the 8 of November, brings to a head the culmination of so much hard work and lays bare a full dissemination of all that is good and evil in this world. We are speaking...
